Oil painting on hardboard
Approximately 6 x 8 inches — 15 x 20 cm

Yay! Here it is! The 365th daily painting! I have to mention that I actually completed this painting quite a while ago but only managed to post it today as there were some rough roads during the latter part of this journey. Blogging about the paintings consistently once per day was easy enough at the start but personal issues came in during the last several months which stretched out the postings. If some of you waited regularly for the paintings, I apologize for this.

The good news though is that I did manage to complete all 365 small paintings in 365 days, with the exception of one day when I worked on this bigger non-daily painting instead:

I made up for that when I painted these two chilis in one day though:

I am really excited to be able to show all of you this milestone (for me). I can’t say how grateful I am to everyone who purchased my paintings — thank you so much for your support! And not least, I am also thankful to those of you who took the time to comment and patiently shared this journey with me. For those who commented during the past several months, I have not been able to reply to most of you personally but I want you all to know just how much I appreciate your words of encouragement. Here’s a virtual hug to everyone!

Just for fun, here is the 365th side by side with the very first daily painting I did:

Here is a picture showing the painting on the easel where I did virtually all of the “dailies”:

    Congratulations, Faith! What an amazing achievement! It has been such an inspiration to me, following your work as I have for the past year. Such hard work and dedication is truly admirable. Every one of your paintings turned out beautifully! It was interesting to see the photos of the first and last paintings side by side. Both are wonderful, but I really like the warm, rich colors of #365. I’m eager to see what you will do next. Take care, and happy holidays to you & yours!

    Hugs & best wishes,
