Tomorrow will be the one-year anniversary of the beginning of this blog and this is the 365th painting. I made a commitment to give my best effort each day and I think it's paid off. I'm painting much closer to how I want to be painting now. In the last year I've learned a lot. Taking time to observe something carefully each day has been a great experience. I've managed to paint a few pretty dreadful pieces as well, but sometimes you learn more from those than from the ones you like. I'd like to thank everyone who visits this blog and especially those of you who took the time to make a comment. I don't always reply to them, but I always appreciate getting them. I'd also like to thank all of the other painters out there who are regularly posting their paintings. There are quite a few blogs that I visit for inspiration. This is really fun. I think I'll keep doing it.
I picked this up at Karen's Bakery over in Folsom. Her shop is filled with wonderful baked goods, that are great for painting. They happen to taste great too. They also one of my favorite breakfast places.
