More to paint: I'm going to be doing a series of smaller paintings to hang in a salon in Newport Beach, CA this summer. I'm looking forward to it. It will be a welcome balance to the myriad of large paintings I've been working on lately.

I went to SOKA today. I always leave there happy. I was anxious to go home and paint. This is different than some other days I go home and paint, in which I don't necessarily feel like painting. In those times, I paint anyway, regardless of whether or not I feel like it. Today, I was really looking forward to it.
