New Project! Fifty-Two Weeks


I've been pondering how to incorporate daily paintings into my schedule without committing to doing one a day, if that makes sense. While I really enjoy my Thirty Horses Thirty Days projects, it's tough when I've got the business of the horses on top of painting, so proposing a year-round thing isn't realistic. Yesterday a friend came up with a great idea, though, and I think it will be very cool!

Unless this is the very first time you've read my blog, you know that just over two weeks ago, we had a foal born here on the farm. She's the only one for this year, and already proving to be quite the princess. The new challenge? To document her growing up - once a week for fifty-two weeks, I'll do a painting of her. Yesterday's will be the first, when she was just a day old - and clearly already had mastered "The Look." My plan will be to do the painting every Wednesday, as that's the day she was born. I'm pretty excited about this. Hope you are too! Make sure you check in next Wednesday to see painting number two!
