Homeward Bound

#1 Homeward Bound
6" by 6" original oil on wrap around canvas with sides painted

Busy day getting back into the studio and doing some reflecting on what I would like to have as my goals for the new year.  I have been a daily painter now for five years!  In the beginning I would paint every day of the year including the holidays and probably did that for two years.  Some days I completed more than one and some days just worked on several at a time but did not finish any.  I am going to set a big goal for myself this year and that is to post a painting every single day!  Yikes.  That is 365 paintings for the year!!  I think one of the reasons many of us slowed up in our painting production is that with our slowed economy, where were we going to put all the paintings that might accumulate.  For that reason, some paintings may be painted on paper or even on a found object!  I just want to ratchet up the creativity and accountability a bit and make the journey a bit more challenging!  Let me know what you think of this and please, please, please, if you have any suggestions or ideas or old photographs you'd like to share, let me know!  I'd love to do more people, like people from the beach from years gone by or people and their animals in action such as on horseback or walking their dogs, etc.  You get the idea.  Makes me a wee bit scared to think about doing this again but I think that is what I need....action!  Hope you New Year is off to a great start!  Nite nite!

Good for you for setting goals for 2012! If you don't make them, how do you know how you have done when the year is over. Good luck!
