Setting up goals for 2011 and sharing them worked like a charm for me: I really made an effort to accomplish those objectives. A post on the subject is in progress and coming soon.
This year, one of my goals is to paint every work day. Last year, I called it the “March challenge” and saw a lot of fruits with my daily efforts. So this year the decision is to extend it twelvefold. So far, I´ve been successful.
January has been a month of birthdays, so my first 2012 painting is Diogo, who turned two and loves everything about balls (pelota, pelota!).
It is acrylic on canvas, 50cm x 50cm (19.6in x 19.6in). You can see in progress shots here.
