My year of painting weekly wildflowers is almost coming to an end and I'm beginning to panic a little about the next project. I've been doing these 52 WEEKS projects for three years now and though one part of me wants to give it a rest, another really, really, really enjoys not only the challenge of focusing on such a large project but also likes the weekly deadlines to work towards. When I'm just working on studio work I tend to ebb and flow and jump from project to project until I have a date for an exhibit looming so having a self-imposed deadline works well for me.
Plus, I do like working on a new subject matter each year as it is a bit of a change from my daily practice which currently consists of canoes, tipis and animals. I can see wildflowers showing up more and more in my future and I do love how that happens, how what I've been doing for one year can morph seamlessly into my other painting.
