Number 100

100 daily paintings
Self Portrait
9"x12"
oil on masonite

I reached a blog milestone today. This is post number 100 of daily painting practice! I feel like I have just finished my mid terms in a daily painting self instruction course. Now onto bigger and better things.

I am starting to think that all good art comes with a great deal of introspection. Learning and experimentation with technique will continue to be my daily painting practice mantra, after the new year I will be focussing on larger work. I will probably reduce the postings to 3 times a week. But before I move too far ahead.....

I must thank all of you who have read and commented on the work I have posted. Your words of encouragement, advice and support have helped me tremendously. The wonderful thing about this new world of art and blogging is that we can all benefit from and contribute to so many.
Thank You!

Yea Peter! I like checking in for your painting practice. I'm guessing the gallery work and commissions are going well. I will miss it if you slow down too much on the blog.

I’ve been visiting various Artist sites asking people if they would like to submit a few images and/or words regarding their individual feelings about the idea of PEACE.

Then, I’ll build a specific BLOG POST featuring your own thoughts and artwork. Additionally, I’ll include a link back to your original site.

Thus far, it’s been a slow process…
