Throwback Thursday

Five years ago I did a little project where I painted thirty paintings in thirty days, then took them to an art show and sale. All of the paintings were 6x6 inches. This was painting number thirty in that series. I recall it was not always easy to find time to paint every single day, but I did it even if it meant starting at ten in the evening or getting up really early to make sure it got done. The following year I did the project again and below is the last painting in that series.

It is very interesting for me to look back at the two projects. I can see a marked growth between the two years and the years since then. That is all I can hope for. Gotta keep moving forward.


I know this is supposed to be a throwback post, but look what I got today! So cool. I'll proudly display it on this blog and when I do future shows.
