Day 3: 5 hours, Monthly Total: 10.5 hours
"How long did it take for you to paint this?"
It's a question most artists dread. Maybe because it implies that artists should charge by the hour. Maybe it implies the question, "It took you THAT long to just do that little ole thing?" Maybe it's because we honestly can't remember how long a painting takes. We don't normally time our art.
This month I'm timing my art. I'm not concerning myself with how much I produce but by the amount of time I spend painting. I'm just enjoying myself.
I look at my painting after working on it for 5 hours today
and think, I sure paint slow!
