October 1st - The aftermath...

Ha! I don't feel that negatively about it.  Just popped in my mind. :)  So, traditionally the day after the 30 in 30 ends, all the artists create a collage of their creations they made during the month.  So, here is mine.  Being that I painted on all different sizes for experimentation purposes, this collage was a challenge in and of itself.  The paintings are not necessarily in chronological order... rather, I fit them the best I could in a pleasing format.  I titled it 30 days of painting since I only painted 26 paintings this month.  But, still, I am pleased with the results.
So, I blabbed a lot about my feelings on this challenge in yesterday's post.  I wanted to say also, that I really learned a lot this month.  I often felt that I was in a 30 day intensive workshop on creating figurative work, pushing myself to create new and interesting language with my brushwork and palette knife and like I said, painting on non-traditional sized panels.  I have lots to chew on as far as the direction my work will take in the coming months.  I know that I enjoy painting figures and I am happy with some of the abstract things I was doing.  But I am wanting to expand my paintings to include more imagery, which will take longer design and planning time and definitely more than one day to create.  Thanks again for following me and thank you for all of your kind comments and cheering me on!  Happy October and have a great weekend!
