Today I reached one one hundredth of a mile. I’ve painted 39 canvases, and that’s a milestone that means a lot to me. 17 yards. 53 feet. I’m amazed at the difference between today’s paintings, and the first ones I did. I hope I feel that way in July, when I will mark one year of painting. How many yards and feet will it be then? I don’t know. How long is it going to take to paint a mile? Maybe the rest of my life.
But it was very satisfying to reach that 1 one hundredth of a mile point. It was especially satisfying to have one of the pictures I painted today come from my own ideas.
So today I am feeling great motivation to continue on to my goal. And I’d like to say that the quality of my work is also telling me that moving forward to my goal is going to be very exciting.
