Thirty Paintings in 30 Days - Day 1

The first day of the New Year. No resolutions, but I am going with trying to do 'more'.  More painting, more walking, more healthy eating - you get the idea. Who doesn't want to do more of what they like. Some creative scheduling and a bit of commitment and we'll see where we end up. Starting it off with Leslie Saeta's Thirty Paintings in 30 Days. I did my first 30 in 30 this past September. Wasn't sure how it would work but I did accomplish the 30 paintings. Was such a great feeling. I didn't pick a theme just painted. For this go round I am going to try to work bigger, push myself to experiment more with my materials and subject matter. More 'reductionist' landscapes, some still life and whatever else appears in my sketchbook and on paper. Looking forward to sharing with the other artists and painting, painting and painting!

...and Happy New Year! May you have a year filled with the best of everything!

  1. 5? 6, 7, 8? Hmmm. LOVE the palette, the textures, the "how many do you see" that made me look differently. Fun!

    1. Good to hear from you Sheila. For the record I'm not sure how many! Have to get started on Day 2....the best laid plans. Looking forward to your Day 2.
