My drawing and painting life
All through September I shared images of paintings in the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge, hosted by Leslie Saeta. I shared some of the best paintings from the 100 small square paintings. The 100 were painted over the course of three months of my year of daily creating (roughly from mid May through early August). I put the ones I shared in this collage below. I started with a series of tree paintings, shared several flower paintings and (more or less) abstract paintings too. Hope you like this overview here.
While some people do paint the 30 paintings during the month of the challenge, I did not. The year of daily creating has been very inspiring, but has taken quite a lot of energy and time. I’ve learned a lot in doing the daily work for a year. But by September I just didn’t want to HAVE to paint daily. By January my feelings will probably have changed again. Anyway, I look forward to joining the 30 paintings challenge again in January. I may give myself a new challenge for the whole year of 2017. Or just for the month of January. We’ll see. Fortunately I have a little while to think about it.
I didn’t do nothing this month. I couldn’t just stop being creative. I did some painting occasionally. I worked on drawings and on learning a new painting technique. For the next few weeks I will also be working on paintings that take a little more time, a little more layering. Some of them are trees. Hope to share some soon. 🙂
