Second day done! We had some 4th of July plans for later in the day so JD and I woke up early and did our creative work from 7-11am. Here’s what I did today:
Two Hours of Painting from 7-9am:
This 5×7 Tree Ring painting took me about 30 minutes:
I just about finished this floral painting in an hour’s worth of time:
I spend five minutes painting a background for a commissioned card:
And 20 minutes starting a new 8×10 painting on 100% rag cotton watercolor paper, which was a dream to paint on:
Two Hours Reading + Writing from 9-11am:
- 50 minutes reading: Writer’s and Their Notebooks, p. 87-120
- 1 hour journaling: notes for essays I want to write on minimalism and journaling
- 10 minutes reading: Drawing from Life
And that’s it for day two! Happy Fourth of July!
