Daily Painting.... one day at a time

Daily painting - other people do it - so I think I might give it a try.  Today I painted a stuffed bunny my grand kids play with when they visit.  For many reasons I won't bore you with, it's been a long time since I blogged about my tumor and it's impact on my art.  One thing I've noticed in all this time, I don't paint as often as I did before my diagnosis.  I get distracted easily - not a surprise to those of you who know me.  So it's time for something different & I think daily painting might be just the thing.

I might not be able to paint everyday because I still have what's been referred to as Bad Brain Days.  In spite my BBDs, I'm entering the world of daily painting with a few caveats: it probably won't be everyday, I might use the time for experimentation, it might be a sketch & it might be something I wipe off as soon as I'm done. The point is dedicated time (about 1 hour or a little more) to paint something different & then blog about the results. 

All that said and with day 1 under my belt, I think I'm off to a pretty good start.  This little bunny is something that I might want to work into a completed painting.  I don't know how long this will last so like many other things in life, I'm going to take this one day at a time.

Thank you for your time & I hope you're having a great day!
