One of the reasons I do these painting a day challenges is because it forces me to fit painting into my life whether or not it is convenient. One painting every day no matter what. 

I painted at a wedding in the French Quarter last night (photo coming soon), and today I’m going to the Superdome to do all I can to bring the Saints a victory in the playoffs. It is exactly the type of weekend that would warrant a break, the kind of “it can wait until Monday” weekend. But painting a day challenges eliminate that from my options, and I find myself more prepared, more dedicated. This simple tasks transforms things. 

Today’s painting is one of my favorites so far.
