I didn't get back to my studio until mid-afternoon so I painted this little study. I worked fairly quickly and stayed very loose. I hope to do this painting much larger and wanted to try out some different color notes.

There was a lot of conversation yesterday on Facebook about doing painting challenges. Some artists love them and some do not. We are all as different as the art we create. And that is what we should celebrate. We are artists and we recreate our vision of beauty. Everyone has something to offer. If you have been painting for years or if you have just started; if you paint everyday or once a month; if you paint small or large, fast or slow... everyone's art is relevant. The same lessons that apply to life, apply to art. It is still important to be kind and tolerant and never belittle others or the way they work. We all need to think how our comments may affect others before we say them. Our goal should be to uplift not discourage.
And that is the end of my sermon :)
