- I finished my "Popfly's".
- Last weeks fish paintings are done. Woo Hoo!
- This week I am on track, on schedule with my paintings.
- I will (hopefully) be able to sneak the last few finishing touches on the 14 aceo's I have from 3 weeks ago. They are drawings of feathers and I had an idea I just haven't been able to implement until now.
It's all coming together now. Of course if I wasn't such a perfectionist, my life would probably be a lot easier. I don't know why I put this pressure on myself to not only get the artwork done, but also to have them be "good". If I create something in a day that I don't like, then I feel compelled to create a whole new work (which makes 2 pieces in a day) that meets my standards. I just have it in my head that each piece needs to be showable.
I'm now looking into MyPublisher, to create coffee table books with my artwork. I think it would be really cool to have that.

I spoke to someone recently that had also tackled the painting a day project (they did graphite drawings), and their story ended after 160 days. An amazing accomplishment to be sure, but I hope I can avoid the same sense of tedium that struck this artist after 5 months.
Here I go into month number 4.
