"One Thousand!!!" - SOLD


(#1000 - all proceeds from this auction will be donated to a charity of the buyers choosing)
I honestly can't believe I'm sitting here posting my one thousandth daily painting. It blows my mind. And there's only one thing I can think to say about it: here's to one thousand more!!

1000 is a significant number. And that's not counting the wipes, or the large ones. Whoa.

Congrats Carol!

Awesome, Carol. I'm glad I found your blog before the count ticked to 3 zeros! Four zeros will be even more cool. :)

great job, Carol! congratulations!

silentwitness said...

I hope you are able to paint thousands and thousands more in your lifetime, and that your passion for what you do never wavers. What you have accomplished at a very young age is astounding!

I love #1000, and see that "spunky flower" has shed her little black dress and donned a reddish one. All the apples came out to celebrate. They are screaming (via those bold reflections on the bowl) for some attention of their own! Great color choices, as usual.

Sara said...

Wow--you're dedication is so very inspiring! Yes, onward to 2000 painting and beyond!

Elizabeth McCrindle said...

An inspiration to everyone, just wonderful. Here's to another 1000...:)

No one works harder than you! Way to go girl! As a student of your first "real" workshop back in Santa Fe I can tell you it astounds me how far and how fast you have risen in the ranks...but it all goes back to that first sentence of this comment...

Much love and thanks for your generous spirit,
Lorrie
