Ruby Sunset, Fishing Village

The Sum of Small Efforts  Some days working in the studio is like one step forward and two steps back.  Any progress is imperceptible.  And yet, as an old boss used to say: "If you don't show up on Sunday, don't bother showing up on Monday!"  Painting is kind of like that.  If you don't at least try today, tomorrow you'll show up and wonder "Now, which end of the brush do I start with again?" So when it seems like today's work was a lot of time with very little to show for it, let's remember a comment by Robert Collier.  "Success", he mused, " is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out". Day in. Day out.

This was a lot of fun.  Acrylic inks on 300-lb rough paper, paint, and collage papers I made, over. 

Ruby Sunset is 15x19" Acrylic media and Collage on paper.
