This seemed harder this time…or did I say that the last time I joined the ’30 paintings in 30 days’ challenge? Frankly, I’m glad it’s over. I can’t stand the pressure. I thought it would help me refine my skills, improve my discipline, and make my body of work more cohesive. It might have. But it also made me a little crazy…Yes, I painted all 30 and also did a few pieces for licensing, as well as a commission…oh yeah, and took a vacation with my mom for a week, joined two collaborations and found a new ‘brick and mortar’ space for my work as well. All of which I am grateful for.
Here’s a shot of most of the thirty. The second collage is my harbor series that I painted last month. I think I prefer to paint with a theme and should have stuck with that this time. I left out a few because they just didn’t fit with the rest. I promise…I really did paint thirty..just not everything looked good together. It did remind me of what I do best, what I need to spend more time on, and what I enjoy the most. Happy October…thank God.
