Day 150. I have been at this now for one hundred and fifty days. That’s one hundred and fifty days within which I put paint on paper. I showed up, often when I didn’t want to. I’ve painted through pain and depression and in the midst of joy and love and everything inbetween. I tell myself that this is a big deal. I see me change as I leaf through the paintings. And in some ways, I see myself stay the same as my life has changed around me. My father always said it wasn’t genius that got you along in life, it was perseverance.
I have a growing stack of these cards and need to find some way to keep them organized and safely viewable.
Thanks to those of you who are coming along with me on this little journey. Not quite halfway through yet but I’m getting close. Thanks, Dad.
