I started a new series of daily paintings. I'm doing a painting each night for 30 nights. Thirty nights will bring me to December 10th. A special night. Each piece will be 10x10 inches, just like my variation series. They can be any subject I want, but mostly focusing on the waning light which gets earlier and earlier this time of year. This is a fascinating phenomenon to me and brings with it so many visceral feelings. Lots to paint!!
I had a lovely email today from a women. She was kind and humorous. From two short emails, I could tell I would like her very much. In her email she mentioned my variation series and she said that she was amazed that I could do 100 good things when she felt she couldn't even do one. Well, in thirty days, I might get a couple nice things, but I know I will also get some losers. That's part of it. The idea for me is to have a "go to". Something that I can fall into each day that has structure and depth. That's it. The "good" comes from the doing of it.
