As I'm writing this I'm nearing the end of my fourth sketchbook and when I look at these sketchbooks I'm a bit stunned that I filled them with so many paintings. How the hell did that happen? Well...one page at a time.
As simple as that sounds this practice is really teaching me about small but consistent steps leading to a bigger whole. Taking a little time in a day to paint is not all that challenging, but when you do it day after day after day, you actually end up with a collection of paintings and full sketchbooks. It's pretty exciting actually. ;-)
Here are paintings #151 tot 160:
|#151 - Flowers on Green|
|#152 - Summer|
|#153 - Blue Skies|
|#154 - True to Form|
|#155 - Three Little Words|
|#156 - Good Afternoon|
|#157 - Flowers on Blue|
|#158 - Sunrise|
|#159 - Flourish|
|#160 - Flowers in a Field|
My paintings always show my preferences of that exact moment. I simply paint what I want. In this case I wanted lots of mandalas and lettering, so that's what I did. It's nice to just sit down and paint whatever you feel like and not really care about repetition or be afraid of trying something new. It's all good.
Wishing you all a wonderful and artsy weekend!
