This concept of just painting to paint is weird to me. Well, not weird, but not my normal way of doing things, so it might be a while before it comes naturally. I mean, I can paint what I see without making it mean something, just enjoying the way the paint goes on the paper or how colors fit against each other or shapes that echo others... but I don't know, maybe I'm just out of practice. Maybe I've become a different kind of artist.
Anyway, I said I was just going to paint and have fun, and I thought, what's more fun than polka dots? I wasn't even going to paint last night, I was so tired, but after a couple of hours of laying on the couch watching tv, I took my paints out anyway.
That's a good thing. I finished it this morning and afternoon.
The other thing I wanted to say is...
Woo hoo! Double digits!
