A Painting a Day for 30 Days- Day #1

A Painting for 30 Days- Day #1

Still Life with Buddha and Flowers

I had great expectations for today! Today was day 1 for my painting a day challenge I have set myself. I realised today that the greatest challenge is letting go of perfection and embracing the act of painting itself.

The first 5 days of the 30 day challenge are going to be still lives. I thought it would be easy! So this is the first, I had higher expectations of myself but I have decided to leave all judgements at the door and just post each painting everyday.

I have this Buddha sculpture that I brought with me from the Buddhist temple in South Africa, it’s one of my favorite things. I also like daffodils and there happened to be some tulips in the house too 😉
