Well, I've made 20 paintings in 10 days since I started this "daily painting" thing. Obviously something is working, I'm getting back into making art on a regular basis. This makes me feel so happy.
A lot of the daily paintings have been studies for a series of larger works, but yesterday I was at the art-supply store and in between customers I did a couple of quick portraits of my co-workers. How lovely to work in a shop that affords time for such pursuits! We are all practicing artists who staff the store - that's part of the appeal.

This morning I went over to the seniors' residence to play scrabble with my friend, but first I painted his portrait:

And the garden is wanting some attention, and my bike needs a major tune-up, and a few other errands to keep life going... and that will make a good day.
Until next time,
