I really miss painting, but just haven’t made the time for it lately, so I spent three brief periods the past few days practicing leaves and colors. The finished painting is a hideous mess of a practice page, but I post it confidently because I learned several things about the colors and mixing and the overall process, so I feel good about the time spent on it! (not as good as if I liked the picture but still really good… advancing in knowledge is a good feeling. It feels like time invested instead of wasted.) Plus… it was fun and relaxing to play with color. I will try more leaves.
The next 6 weeks will be busy as we open a new business… I’m not going to beat myself up over missing a few days in my challenge, if I am too tired or busy, but I’m also not going to allow myself to use it as an excuse to just give up.
