19th Week, Daily Painting Surprises

This blog is about a commitment to my art and myself to paint every day with no exception.  Posts will be weekly or biweekly to show the results of my efforts.

This website is coming up the first anniversary, here at square space. It took me a while to start writing this blog.  Painting daily made it easier to post. It is about the process not the finished product. Finishing a painting does happen a lot fast too, a benefit.  The aspect that is surprising about painting daily is when I dare myself or set up a rule. One of my rules was to use only the leftover colors and a palette knife.  Happy accidents can occur to take me out of my habits.

 I worked on softening the contrasts and breaking up some of the diagonal.
