Day 10: Choose

Day after Labor Day and back to reality....school, work and painting! That's right. Making the time. I used to say "there's not enough time in the day", but then I realized that we all have exactly the same moments. We can choose how we use them. I recommend painting or drawing or cooking or sewing for 30 minutes rather than watching mindless tv for example. Be the change you want to see in the world. And I want to see a creative one.

Today, I painted my Mom with her doll carriage. Love you Mom! Pat Weaver was rocking it again with "fast and loose" watercolors. Love that free-ness! Nancy Johnson's work got beautifully esoteric being inspired by the book Paint Yourself Calm. Heather Earnest was inspired by the puppy on the loose since all she wanted to do was high tail it out of her job today! lol. And all our thoughts and prayers are with you Lynn Ashford...good luck tomorrow and speedy healing from your Daily Painting friends!!

Day 9: Labor Day at the Beach!

Happy Labor Day! Since this Daily Painting experience is play not work, we were diligently on it! I paid homage to the day by painting the beautiful Ponce Inlet, where we had fun with the kids and the puppies today. This is what I imaged it looked like without the chaos of 3 goldendoodle puppies. Heather symbolically paid respects to having Labor Day off by painting her tools! Lynn and Nancy sent me their photo from the studio and I love it!!

Day 4: Watercolors, Puppy Paintings, Margaritas, Beers and Friends Joining the Challenge

Day 4 for me consisted of studio building shopping, Nate's homework, and Mexican food with Heather's parents, so my watercolor of the day happened post cocktails. Heather was more disciplined and got hers finished pre-margaritas.  Lynn Ashford and Nancy Johnson have joined us in the fun. Welcome ladies---I love it!! Paint with us and send me your daily painting!

Here they are!
