21 days painting challenge

I did my 21 days, painting a quick (20 minute) painting every day!

It was a very good exercise. Karen Margulis gave the workshop group this challenge in order to make us start a new habit of painting every day. For me it  is usually hard to do.. there are so many excuses, the house is a mess, the phone rings, I must cook and it goes on… it is never my turn to just do my thing. I think this really lowered the threshold for me, and made it easier to just START a new painting. At least I can say I have never before painted this often! Before I often thought I had no time, and ended up painting nothing!

Uppför backenSome of my 21/21 challenge paintings are small, some bigger. I also allowed myself to go on painting longer if it felt right, but most of these quickies took me less time than those 21 minutes.

The point wasn’t to create finished pieces for framing, but to just paint for a while every day. It gets you going, You should try!
