I'm so proud to say that I did it, I completed one painting for every work week in 2022 (not counting holidays). There were about four paintings that weren't viable, and also four that were watercolor sketches just to make my goal, but I'm still counting them.
And I'm going to do it all again this year! To kick us off, here is a fuzzy buzzy bumble bee, my first painting of 2023
One thing I'm changing about this next year is I'll be trying to batch paintings so I can work on several at once. It will be a lot more efficient, especially with the smaller ones.
You can see the painting process of this bee in my video about surviving creative burnout:
