I have a friend who said I should make my birthday month all about me so she coined the first month Nanuary. I’ll go with that!
This past December, I put my brushes aside to enjoy time with family and friends. In January, I rededicated myself to daily painting to get back in sync. This was my third year to do so and I invited friends from the Los Gatos Plein Air group to join me.
About 18 people accepted my invitation and we created a “secret group” on Facebook. The rules were loose: do the best you could to paint every day but it was ok to take a day off if needed- it’s all about balance! Life happens!
You could work on old paintings or start new. Just post what you worked on that day.
We had lots of lively discussions, gave support, and learned a lot about each other through the month. And the art created by the group was exceptionally strong- easy to see growth when painting daily. Can’t wait to see how this group progresses this year!
I’m posting just a few of my Nanuary work here. Enjoy!
