018: Lessons Learned from Creating a Painting (Almost) a Day

At night, I settle in and begin an intuitive watercolor painting.  It’s not a challenge to paint every day or a hard and firm commitment. I don’t want my creativity to feel like work.  I’m just painting as we my family winds down for the night.  Some days I feel like doing it and other times I stifle a groan as I pick up the paints. But then I paint and everything inside me settles.  Here are some lesson learned from doing it.  Maybe you could try it too?
