Sunny side up #365!!!!!!!

Daily painting #365!!!! (Yippee!) 5"x7" oil on primed canvas panel 

365 DAYS OF LITTLE DAILY PAINTINGS .....what an awesome journey!

So how does one decide what to paint for your 365th painting ....a milestone worthy of celebration! Well that particular decision has been on my mind all week, until I suddenly realized at one of those 3am moments that I had to be true to myself and my year long journey. I NEVER know what I am going to paint and have never allowed what I am going to paint be an issue. My journey has simply been the recording of my everyday, banal existence in a hectic, busy life where I have tried hard to slow down and 'smell the roses' (there have been many roses!). My recordings have been of the ordinary, the seemingly unimportant which for some reason has caught my attention! And so I decided to not try too hard.... To keep it simple and record something ordinary from yet another simple day in my everyday life. The simple day which will forever be etched in my memory as the day I painted ordinary little eggs (breakfast) as the 365th painting in a year of daily painting! What an amazing journey of reflection and (most importantly) painting! Thank you to all of you who have joined me along the way .....I have made special friends (I bare my soul to you!) ....and I hope you will continue to follow along and share my journey with your friends! Tell others about Paintings in the post.....in the hopes that I can inspire a few people out there in some way or another. There are so many daily painters and what I have done is not new or novel, I just never thought I could do it! I encourage all of you to find the courage to do something you didn't think possible ...and hang in there(even when the going gets tough)....anything is possible if you start with the decision to try! 

 With all my love and thanks  x Heidi 

I will be celebrating 365 days of daily painting with an exhibition at Gallery 415 (above Spectrum Art in Umgeni Road). The opening will be on Thursday 30th October and no invitation is needed....all are welcome to join me. I would love to meet you if you have been following Paintings in the post.
