Promises, Promises


“Sunburst” Acrylics and Colored Pencil on 11″ x 14″ Stretched Canvas. Day 6 of 30 Paintings in 30 Days.

I’m really trying to keep the promises I make to myself. I’m learning to treat myself the way I try to treat others.  I talk to myself with more kindness now.  I’m not so critical and I don’t berate myself like I used to.  Sometimes when I make promises,  my expectations are too high and I can’t keep the promise. I try to understand and have compassion for myself.

I promised that I would blog every day, in addition to painting 30 paintings in 30 days.  It is now 10:00 p.m, and I just posted my sixth painting in six days. I’m working my shift at the Cedar Keyhole Co-op Gallery tomorrow and I’m too tired to write. So I’m going to be kind to myself, give myself a big round of applause for finishing my painting and for writing this much and put myself to bed.
