I did it again. I re-upped for the 100 Paintings Challenge. Will I make it? I don't know for sure, but with my new plan and schedule in place I am well armed. So far I am making headway and have plunged in with both feet. I'm using a swimming/diving analogy and I'm not any kind of good swimmer, but it's how I feel.
This week is my first back in the challenge. Laure Ferlita, the facilitator of 100 Paintings Challenge posted a Welcome Back interview we had on the blog.
Something about the challenge appeals to me. The opportunity to build a steady painting schedule and a strong, consistent body of work is something I need. The accountability is there. I know I signed onto something that others are waiting to see.
The classes I've been taking, in person and online, with Alyson B. Stanfield have been a huge factor in my growth as an artist. She suggests we do certain tasks, and I just do it. I feel great about what I have accomplished with her advice and I'm moving forward.
