Tomorrow I’ll begin a new series– and I’m excited!
As you might remember, my last series was 100 stories. It was my favorite series, but then I think that everytime. Each series has something a little terrifying and a little wonderful about it. So with the next series I always try to keep the wonderful and eliminate the terrifying.
The wonderful from the last series was the story. I loved the story part of the painting. But after 100 stories, I felt like I’d been in the past too long. That’s the funny thing about stories. They’re all about the past. And I’d rather be in the present.
See, my life is good. Maybe middle school was awful, but that’s long behind me. It’s my story, but it’s no longer mystory. And I’d rather tell my story. The story of now.
So my next 100 paintings will be stories of the present. They’ll be things that are happening now. Most of the time, the paintings will be paintings of something from that very day.
After three weeks of painted nails and beautiful scenery, I’m feeling rested and ready. I’ll see you tomorrow with a painting from today.
