365, Day 25: Blues & Greens

365, Day 25

This was another day when I was drawn into the blues and greens on the palette. And, again, this is one that lives better than it scans. I realized, as I was painting this one, that I was painting it for me. That I didn’t care what anybody else thought of it. This might not seem like a big deal but, for me, it is. Another result of the practice, I think, the daily painting has resulted in me just “doing it”, just trying things out, playing with the paint, seeing what happens. I’m sell concerned with the final result being “perfect” than I am with just playing around.

How many days do they say it takes to develop a new habit? I’m 25 days into this practice with this piece.
