My motivation to complete my 100 Days of Painting project has pretty much fizzled to zero. I tried to push through it for a while, but sheer stubbornness doesn’t seem to cut it for me these days.

I’ve learned that if I can understand why something’s happening, it’s easier to deal with. In this case, all the goals that I set out with – creating a painting practice, finding my style, selling my work, improving my skills – had been achieved.

So, I’m allowing myself to fail the 100 Days challenge, and I’m okay with that. I intend to keep making and selling my work, and I’ve got the exhibition (postponed to summer 2022) to work towards as well. There might even be some writing on the horizon, we’ll have to see what the future brings.
