I learned a lot from my painting a day routine, but I wanted a break. A little time off to see if this routine should be carried on for another year, or stop before it became too comfortable.
I decided that I still need to acquire a certain "looseness" in my paintings and more confidence as well. I won't do a painting a day, I need some time to work on bigger pieces and get some of my atelier work done.
But I'll post almost everyday.
