a painting every day

hello everyone,

thank you so much for your kind words about my beginning paintings! i've "killed" some of them already with the ugly phase, but so many are coming to life in totally new and unexpected ways.

i've decided to finish a small painting every day & list it in my shop for under $100. i'm excited about this as a practice for me to loosen up and experiment and to offer more affordable work!

i thought this was a good painting to start with as it has the words "grow" in it. which i'm trying to do... and i think especially in painting if you're not trying to do so, you could get very bored!


"grow" measures 10x10 with 1 1/2 inch thick sides and is available here!

Is this what you worked on today? I think it's great! And I'm very excited you are painting, so cool!

I love the idea of doing a painting a day, I would like to try that, but I'm guessing I wouldn't be disciplined enough to do it. :)

"A painting a day" - what a great project idea!

the one for today is so luscious with all that 'mango' orange - YUM!

a painting a day is a brilliant idea.

I absolutely adore the colours in this. If I wasn't on such a tight, tight budget at the moment I'd be straight over to the shop to purchase.

Universe, please send me a wee money miracle so I can buy this beautiful painting.

I really love the 'painting a day' goal too. It's a great way to stretch yourself. You're a fantastic inspiration Mati.
