I started this painting yesterday evening, and was really getting into it when the light went away. Throughout this day, I have been busy with other paintings, mostly finishing some that I had started earlier in the week, but all along I have been looking forward to returning to this one and finishing it up. I am glad to complete it at last, and now just kick back and read the evening away.
I feel that I’ve done my last “solitude” painting on this island before the workshop arrives in the morning. I am satisfied with my output. Last summer I completed nineteen paintings in six days; this time I managed fourteen in four days. And I like this year’s paintings far more than last year’s. Having a considerable stretch of time to evaluate work from last year has been a quick trip for my endeavor this time around.
My focus over the next three days will be on teaching and assisting in any way that I can. I may create some more paintings, but that is no longer my priority. I really am looking forward to working with others now.
Thank you for staying with me and observing my work this week.
I paint in order to learn.
I journal when I feel alone.
I blog to remind myself that I am not alone.
