Of the 11 days that I've painted in a row on my new quest, about half of the days have been complete flops. Half of the days I've spent wiping off as much paint as I've put on the canvas. Some of the progress is encouraging, but in all 11 days, not one painting has been completed.
Painting is a lonely process. I need the calm and quiet when I paint, but quite frankly, it exhausts me. Is that even possible? I've heard that if one is an introvert, that being in big crowds can be exhausting. Could the opposite be true as well? That an extrovert would be exhausted from the solitude?
