Ok... so it’s been a week since I’ve touched my #31daysofpainting
canvas... the main reason seems to be that I’m just not feeling connected to the big canvas I branched out to try during this challenge. I like the idea of painting on a big canvas, but I still haven’t found a great spot to paint on it, and not having a good place to paint makes it really hard to find my groove.
But the more I thought about it, I didn’t just want to *not* do #31daysofpainting
So I’m starting over. Today is day one.
I may no longer be part of the official group, but I’m doing this for me, because I still love this process, even if I am starting over halfway through the month!
So here is my brand new canvas... a smaller one I had on hand, and I used a paint pen for my words of intention.
I’ll be finishing my own 31 days on November 16, after everyone else has already finished... but that’s ok. I still want to participate, for me, and I’ll take it one day at a time.
I’m going to put away my big canvas for now. I know I’ll come back to it again... maybe in a few months I’ll have the perfect place to paint big.... until then, I’m ok with the learning experience I found in trying. And here’s to trying again, to starting over, to choosing to take things one day at a time....
