i never intended to be away from here for this long.
one summer day roll into another, 2015 i now well on its way...
hope it's been good to you so far
i'm back :)
here is the first thing i want to share with you:
while in Italy last year a few of us
chatted about painting a face every day for the whole of 2015.
i loved the thought of the challenge
and i was ready to jump in.
as 2014 was coming to an end the project starting fading away,
it felt huge,
my head just couldn't grasp such a commitment,
doubts crept in and the last few of us decided not to do it.
but i couldn't ignore the little voice inside cheering me on,
and on the morning of the 1st i woke up thinking:
"how will i feel on this day next year if i have NOT done it?"
"how will i feel on this day next year if i HAVE done it?"
and there was my answer, i had to do it, i had to take the leap.
and i did.
at the last minute i told Jeanne-Marie i was going for it and she was game,
and that made me ridiculously happy!
today i will be painting my 12th face for the year,
don't get me wrong it still feel huge and daunting
but as Jeanne-Marie said wisely, "one day at a time"
here are the first 10
(acrylics on cardboard)
i will be sharing them daily on Instagram
welcome to a new adventure!
