I want to keep it simple this year. No big lists. No lofty goals. I just want to simply paint, teach and share. And by doing all of these things I hope to to have my work continue to grow. Simply paint.
Paint what I want and see what evolves. Let things happen.
In years past I would often have big lists of goals....New Year's resolutions. It was overwhelming to keep track of and to know where to begin. I have been able to whittle the list down and this year there is nothing on the list except to Simply Paint.
The best way to reach any art goal is to become a better painter. The best way to become a better painter is to simply paint. Paint often. Make time to paint even if you have to paint small and set a timer for 20 minutes or less. All of those 10 minute sessions will add up.
A Challenge for the New Year
Set up a small area where you can leave your supplies out. Cut a stack of papers. Spend at least 2-3 days a week and do a quick painting. This is in addition to any larger more involved painting you may be working on. Consider these paintings quick studies or experiments. Just paint!
I will share more on the challenge soon so start thinking about it!
