This is my fourth year giving myself a goal and trying to stick to it for the full year. By now I know full well that September is my burn-out month, and true to form I'm burnt out. I'm having trouble sticking to a color and staying interested in it. If you look back at my months I was doing 4 or 5 paintings but now I'm down to less. This is when I have to put my head down and gut through things.
