    you can disregard december for this question, as nothing happens then, so you can consider it an 11-month year. you would do \(100 \mod 11 = 1\), so add one month to your previous painting, i.e. the next painting will be in an september, and because 11 goes fully 9 times into 100, you add 9 years, so the next time will be september 2019
