I’ve been writing these notes for 100 days, and I’m not quite ready to stop.
Even though I don’t have a painting for you today, I want to tell you what I’m planning next. I’m going to keep painting– it’s fun and so many of you have emailed to tell me how much you want to keep going.
But I’m going to switch things up to prevent boredom for both of us. Hence–
The Summer Sunshine Series.
Living in the Northwest, I’ve gotten used to the rain. Especially in the winter. I even like it, most of the time. But when summer comes– it’s glorious. And I’m going to celebrate this summer by painting outside as much as possible.
I’m going to slack off a bit with this project– I’m only going to paint 5 paintings a week for 10 weeks. So starting June 7, you’ll get a painting in your inbox every Monday-Friday. I’m going to take my easel and explore new places in Portland. Because you asked, I’ll explain bits of what I’m doing and how I paint, in addition to my usual stories. (There might even be a video or two.) At the end of the summer, I’ll have 50 paintings of my city, and a nice farmer’s tan.
As always, the first reply in my inbox is the winner of that day’s painting. And while I haven’t fully figured out the best way to price these, trust me that they’ll be options for everyone– because I’m happiest when my paintings live in other people’s homes.
Finally, let’s look back everything that’s happened since February 15.
(If you notice a little red dot in the left corner of the image, then that means the painting is still available. Remember, tomorrow all the paintings go to $100, so email today if you see one you love.)
And of course, prints of any of these images are available too. Just email me.
