On Emily Carr and avoiding problems

"I am hedging, not facing the problem before me how to express the forest - pretending I must do this and that first ... but the other should come first; it's my job."
 ~ Emily Carr

Daily Painting #20
watercolour on 140lb cold press paper

I started off this year with a goal: 31 portraits in 31 days. 
Sounds ok, I thought.  Doable.  I can do this.

I have made it to day #20 unscathed, and I'm feeling better every day.  Will I continue to paint a portrait a day come February 1st? Pretty sure that's a no.  But I will strive to paint daily, and to "do this or that" AFTER.  

Because as Emily Carr once said, "it's my job"
