Painted Love

I may have mentioned before that I've taken up painting again. It has been a long time since I've painted. Roughly 15 years. So I'm a bit rusty. And I've changed mediums. Most of my previous painting experience has been with oils, gauche, and watercolor. But now I'm painting with acrylic and loving it.

I've been inspired by the daily painting movement, in which artists commit to painting a small work every day (or almost every day). The idea is that painting smaller works every day is the quickest way to improve. There is less attachment to the finished piece, more freedom to try new techniques, and a greater sense of accomplishment.

So I've painted about 25 6"x6" pieces, of which 20 are only fit for the trash. But I am enjoying the learning process. I hope to record the journey and start posting my efforts here soon.
