Why an Oil Painter ditched her oils

A month ago I decided to make space in my life to make. As a mother to a toddler (2 in February?!) and a full time art teacher in public school, my ability to spend hours in my home studio crafting oil paintings just isn’t feasible. I was sick of being a victim about the whole thing. Maybe you’ve done that to yourself as well.
Everyone else has the time to make art.
When is it my turn? If only I had the money to make art full time. If only I taught part time. If only I had free daycare.

So I pulled out my calendar and took an honest look at the time I had and made a commitment. I would give myself 10 Days. I had winter break coming up and new that I’d have some daycare filled days and no teaching. Thus, the 10 Day Plein Air Challenge was born.
