Hallelujah! I did it! 40 paintings in 40 days! (actually 41, but who’s counting?) Now I really need a break! We’ll see how long I need…but this has been fabulous discipline for me. Today I went to a painting demo from 9 to 11 at TAG, then came home and painted for a couple hours. I also ate lunch, which I regretted because it interrupted the painting and when I came back to it the lighting had already completely changed. Then we drove up to Ventura to drop off a painting at a gallery up there, watched the sunset on the beach (it was cold and windy), ate some Italian food and dropped in on Ignat Ignatov’s reception at Cal Lutheran U on the way back.
The painting is of a plant I got to help with the feng shui of prosperity–it’s called a money tree plant….can’t say I’ve noticed yet…it’s been there a while…. Happy Chinese New Year!
