Since the are usually only 31 days, normally in my daily painting challenges, day 17 would feel like a victory. Over half way finished.
Only this time, there’s no finish line to measure my efforts. It’s like running. If I set out to do 3 miles, I’ll probably get tired at 1.5. But if I just move the line to say a 6 mile run, I don’t start to feel it until mile 3.
And honestly, with no finish line in sight, I feel fine. I’ve settled into the routine. I’m not aiming for any date in the future, just settling in to the rhythm. At least, that is, when it comes to painting. I’m like this little hummingbird on a branch– just waiting it out.
I’m giving away a small painting today to one person on my mailing list. If you want a shot at it, you can enter here: www.denisehopkinsfineart.com/subscribe.
