Ok... so I am more than a little excited for this 30 in 30. For those of you who are new to my work and me as an artist, I welcome you here and hope you will visit back often during the month of September. For those of you who have been with me for awhile, welcome back and THANK YOU for all of your support, comments, feed back and most of all your love!
I am so ready for this challenge and have been thinking about it and planning the whole month of August. So, as of day one, I feel pretty ready and psyched to go. I do have a theme that I am following throughout the 30 days. I will largely do figurative work (simply put, paintings of people/figures) But... my goals are several. (I am going to go artsy on y'all for a minute so, forgive me... ) I love to paint... and I love the paintings I have made in the past few years. But, as any artist who has been at it for awhile will tell you, you are constantly developing and growing. I am at a point in my artistic career where I am yearning for some change. So, in painting figurative work this month, I also intend on attempting to go beyond my usual style and 'language' that I have developed to find new ways to express myself, new ways of applying paint, new color palettes to try and new techniques. I really hope to push my knowledge and step outside my comfort zone a bit and see where it takes me. I hope you will enjoy the work I create, as I am excited with the things I will be doing this month!
Here is painting #1, titled "Watching the Races". Being that this is #1, I feel it is pretty similar to work that I have created in the past. Starting out cautiously, I tried some new ideas with my colors and reallllly tried to not OVER paint this one...which is a hard thing to do. I hope you like and please feel free to comment below. Thanks and have a great night!
