I started painting with an outdoor painting group. Once a week, I show up and a still life (if it rains) or scenic spot is ready for us to paint. No thinking involved! Story has it, this plate was hand carried back from Mexico.
Every day for 35 years, artist John Evans collected trash on his way to work and made a collage with these findings, one for each day. In those 35 years he only missed one collage, because he was sick. I do lots of stuff every day. I drink coffee, I walk the dog. But what if, from now on I also create a painting a day?
