147 - Let's try this again

5x7 acrylic on paper

Last year - around the end of July - I committed myself to daily painting.  Unfortunately, I did not quite meet my goal.  In my defense, (1) I do work away from home 4 days a week, and (2) I do paint more than one painting on weekends.  Many times I paint as many as 10 or 15 small pieces on a weekend.  Then, of course I have to take a picture of each of them. . .  excuses, excuses.    I had all sorts of glorious and ambitious notions for this summer - now summer is almost gone!  Happens every summer.  This particular summer, I've had one project that has occupied not necessarily all of my time, but has occupied all of my mind.  That project will be revealed soon.

I'm going to try to get a new body of work ready for the fall.  I really like painting on paper - like this little pear, and will be doing a lot of fruits and vegetables, wine bottles, and various things in small format.   So, hopefully next year at this time, my number will be over 500!
