My goal was to paint 20 small oil paintings in June; I painted 19. Not bad. I painted a variety of subjects: fruits, vegetables, decorative objects, dishes, and objects from nature. Fruits and vegetables were the easiest and fastest for me to paint. I love oil painting and am convinced of the value of daily painting. I am going to finish off the year by studying some art basics, specifically perspective, figures, and portraits. In 2009, I plan to commit to daily painting.
