Hey guys,

Today I make my first anniversary of 365 days of posting painting everyday. It's been a lengthy and bumpy road but I can surely say that I've come a long way since I've started. This has been the most productive year of my life and I'm proud to have had you along with me. I truly couldn't have done it without your support and love. Thank you. It has changed me in ways that I can't describe with words, I can only encourage you to try it for yourself. I have found a lot about myself that I previously didn't know. Mainly, that I will only do as much as it's required and that if I don't push myself, I am forever doomed to stay the same. I can only imagine that this is the case for other people. I talked about some of the other benefits that this challenged has contributed to my personal&professional life in my previous journal: link 

Now that this is done, what's next? As you've might have guessed, it is finally time to apply the knowledge acquired from all those study paintings into brand new 365 paintings from imagination. Maybe I should've done this earlier but hey, better late than never, right? The quality at first will probably not be spectacular, but I'm not afraid to fail and I'm sure that if I just keep going, things will get better. A tough year is ahead, but I am confident in my ability to proceed and persevere. This is just the beginning. 

Stay awesome! <3

P.S. I'm getting to 10 000 watchers. So chop chop people, click that watch button already.
Hey guys,

You recently helped me reach 3000 watchers and I want to take a moment and thank each and every one of you. Your endless support and love, really means a lot to me. I would definitely not be able to produce the amount of paintings I do without your encouragement. More than 400 deviantions and not a single one without a positive comment. Thank you.

What is more, there are almost less than 100 days left of my Daily Study Paintings for a Year. That's so exciting, time flies so fast!

A lot of people ask me whether it's a project for school or something I do for money and the answer to both is no. See, I used to have this huge problem with discipline and completing my works, as I'm sure many people can relate to. Finishing a painting would often take me days or even weeks and I would always wonder whether it was "good" enough to post online. I would start hating the piece and procrastinate painting all together, thus losing precious time. Days would pass without me doing anything of importance. This is why I decided to force myself to draw and post a painting study everyday for 365 days, no matter how it ended up looking or I how I felt about it. Although there was some pressure at first, I immediately felt a sense of relief. I knew that as long as I finished my painting for that day, I was on the path to success, all I needed to do is put in the work each day. No guilt feelings, no frustration, no excuses. I can't describe how much this daily practice have helped me, not only my in painting skills, but in my life as well.

All in all, thank you so much for your warm support and if you happen to experience some of things I mentioned before starting DSPY, I hope this inspires you to try this challenge for yourself. I'm sure it will do miracles.

Stay awesome! <3
