Yes, I paint every day....or nearly. But the current daily painter movement is comprised of artists who actually finish a painting in a day. How DO they do it? I linger over my coffee and my meals. I even linger over many decisions. And, I just love the look of paint over paint. That can only occur when the paint has some time to dry. I consider and reconsider. To give myself a break from the larger painting problems in my work area, I have decided to paint a few smaller still life works that will be color-driven and a bit mindless. The shift will accommodate attention and practice in other arenas....brushwork, the difficulty of painting flowers and design to name a few.
"Ginger Jar with Peaches" is a smaller 12 x 9 painting. A 2-day painting. The best I can do.
