30 Days of Painting...
I have re-titled my challenge this month to 30 days of painting.... I completed 26 paintings this month, but as I said yesterday, made it to my studio to paint for all but 1 of those 30 days. The one day I didn't paint, I was thinking about painting while shoveling snow! So, as in previous challenges, those who participate create a collage of all of the work they made during the month, and it is a great thing to see! I love looking at all of the work I made side by side to compare, contrast and see the connections. At the outset, I decided to focus on 3 things.... exploring Stripey abstracts, Vintage things and landscapes. Some nice things came of limiting myself to these things. About midway, I decided to try combining the stripey theme with my more traditional painting style and subjects. I love the result and plan on further pushing this idea to see where I go with it. I hope you enjoyed following me and thank you again for your comments and support!
