I have completed three weeks of my daily 6x6 Project. I'll be honest. It feels like I've been doing this project a lot longer than that. A lot longer. I'm not really sure what this means but something tells me that it's probably not a good sign. In fact, the last few days I've considered backing off on the daily commitment. While I'm really enjoying the challenges of this personal project, these squares are certainly dominating my painting schedule a bit more than I'd like. I don't want to stop painting them completely because I think they've been good for me. Each new square has pushed me to play with lines and color and pattern, and as a result I'm learning a lot about what I like (and what I don't like!) and it is a good creative exercise. Rather than putting the brakes on it completely, I've been considering lowering the commitment to 3 or 4 a week, but I just can't bring myself to do it yet.
Maybe I'll give it one more week -- or maybe just one more day -- before I decide for sure. I do know that other illustrations and paintings are quickly moving up my priority list, so I guess I'll just go paint today's 6x6 square and wait to see what tomorrow brings.
