I am committed

I got some 6 x 8 canvas panels and 6 x 6 wood panels at Art Media today. It was a busy day but I am committed to this one painting a day thing. I suppose this is a bit of a cheat..as simple as it is..but I couldn't land on my subject and my cat was bothering me, walking all over my things. Eventually something else got his attention he turned his back on me.... I wound up choosing him as my subject.

Nice little Kity cat Celeste! When you did a painting aday a while back you made significant hurdles with yourskills in a short period of time.

Hi Celeste! Love the new photo of you on the blog, too. A painting a day -- I'll join you when I'm back in town! These look very good -- and what a great habit to cultivate. I think it makes you think every day, "what will I paint?"

Congratulations on your commitment to do a painting a day.

To save money on canvases, you might consider making your own panels. I buy pre-primed canvas or gessoed paper at Utrecht and either glue it to pre-cut masonite panels, using PVA glue, or just tape the canvas to a drawing board. If it turns out to be something you want to save you can glue it to a panel later.
