Creating a Painting Habit
In December 2016 I challenged myself to complete one mushroom painting every day for 30 days. I worked mostly with acrylic paint for the ease of cleanup and quick drying time. Probably because I forced myself to use acrylic paint instead of oil, I developed a new better relationship with acrylics, and found some techniques that helped me appreciate them more than I had previously. Like most people challenging themselves, the exercise helped me develop discipline, but also gave me permission to try some new things. I hope to challenge myself again in the future.
