More on why I need to paint everyday!

     Found this article on an interesting blog called Empty Esasel that seems to re-enforce one the reasons I took Carol's worshop. It is about being productive and setting goals by establishing a pattern. The fast small paintings will help me with that while trying to learn alla-prima at the same time. Can you tell I'm trying to psych myself up to start in January.

Carol Marine Workshop -

Went to the Painting a day workshop last week by artist

 - Carol Marine

 December, 2011
    Carol Marine Workshop: Dec 12-16,, Aurora, IL
Painting small and often is a powerful way to rapidly improve your skills. That is why I took the class to get faster, looser and more acquainted with Alla-prima style painting. I won't be painting everyday, but I'll be painting smaller and more often. Thanks Carol!

This was such a fun group!!!

      Carol was a delightful person and an amazing teacher! - She is part of a wide growing group of daily painters, who do small paintings. They will upload the photo of their paintings to a blog to sell on line, the usual starting price of $100. In this way, many artists are finding they can grow quickly in skill and finally make a living with their art, after struggling for years in galleries and at art fairs. Carol has had over 3 years of experience daily painting and teaches workshops around the US and Canada. ...
