This is my 365th daily painting for the Daily Paintworks website, and I am so happy and proud I took the plunge, which was very scary at first. It began with my first posting on April 9, 2013 of a pansy painting, coincidentally enough. It sold that first day. This has been a wonderful learning experience for me as I have met many of my goals--to paint faster and looser, try new subject matter, learn how to crop and edit photos, and not obsess over the title. Painting has been such a delightful routine for me, and such an important part of each day. There is still much more to learn and experience and I look forward to that. Thank you to all who have sent encouraging comments and/or have purchased paintings.
