12-31-14: On the flight home from Texas yesterday I started one of the best books, Carol Marine's Daily Painting. I am inspired to begin this discipline of daily (or frequent) painting in hopes of skill development. It's an excellent book--I'm halfway through it and find it full of good advice. And this seems like a resolution I might actually keep. It dovetails with my plans to learn to use oils (again) and acrylics as well as watercolors.
I made a Smash type journal before leaving for Texas and am trying to catch it up. While this will not meet the daily painting requirement (it's a sketch, not a complete painting) I'm using this picture to get started posting. Happy 2015!
