I've been following some people who have the tenacity and discipline to create a painting a day. They keep it small (about 6x6), but by no means simple - their work is amazing. My favourite one is Carol Marine's, http://carolmarine.blogspot.com , - her work is clean, fun, and very very good.
I've been telling myself I ought to try this (my works are quite a bit larger, the smallest being 16x20), as I've been away from painting for awhile now, and painting small but daily would get me back in the groove.
I tried one the other day - it's 2 days later and I keep looking at it. Maybe I'll start a 'painting every 3 days' movement - haha. But the desire is there - so I know I'll be going back again this weekend. It's like evry other habit - takes about 3 weeks to get established. But I'll say this - that small painting felt good!
