Here I am back at square one again. I can't believe it's been over a year since I last posted. I think I might take a different approach to painting this time. Instead of feeling like I have to paint a masterpiece for every post, I might try to do entries in an art journal. If these small entries lead me to do a more thorough painting, that would be good, but not the main goal. I should have been journaling years ago with my garden and vacations. But since I'm so far behind, I think I will just start with my last trip to visit my family in Florida in February and see what happens. I decided to do the journal size of 9" x 12" and use Bristol paper for the pages. I can use artist's tape (on the back) to stick small works onto the pages. I can use some of my ACEO cards and experiment with different media. I hope I can fill the pages of the journal this year and maybe do a few other paintings too.
