This is my 500th Daily Painting. I am so proud and happy. I obsessed over this painting for days, even more than for my first painting. So many possibilities for subjects were considered, each evoking a surprising emotion . I wanted to reflect gratitude for the past as well as demonstrate hope and promise for the future. This has been such a rewarding experience--I can't even begin to tell you how much I have learned from this experience. Along the way I have met so many nice people, strangers who take the time to complement each other's work because they know how important it is to an artist. I have been asked many times, "Will you stop at 500?' Heck, no.
Thank you to all of you for your kindness and encouragement.
