I have been involved in art making 40+ years. There are so many threads that seem to continue and yet there is an ongoing struggle with motivation, effort, and refocusing that is inevitable. Deciding to participate in a painting a day challenge during February has sparked a desire to re-create my website on a new platform, begin a new blog, and simply coordinate all my PR efforts better--along with actually painting again after a lull of holiday activity, ice skating classes, planning a 90th birthday party for my mother, and days of being sick with a winter cold. Here I am fresh and new starting out with small wood panels. I prefer painting larger, but it is curious how the small format sparks different results.
