I've failed and it is giving me a stomach ache.
Somewhere in the 30 paintings in 30 days, I fell off the challenge. I think I've done about 20. Some I can't share because they are gifts, some because I've been too occupied with other projects to get posted. I almost said I was too lazy to post them but that is not true.
I am working very hard on three tracks.
- I am cleaning and reorganizing by studio more than I have ever done before. The goal is to have a space where I can welcome visits and share my work. Let me know if you want to come over for tea.
- I am creating a line of prints and interactive art cards.
- I am learning to be comfortable with failing.
You see this isn't a post to make an excuse for not finishing the 30 paintings project. I realize no one really cares but I've often created sprints for myself to avoid the marathon. In my year of "solo" I need to learn to answer for myself to myself; to sit with the choices I've made based only on what I know.
I don't need to defend it, explain it, or justify it.
It is way harder than I imagined.
Toy bin to supply bin in a few easy steps. More organizing to go, mental and otherwise.
