During the February 2021 30-day challenge, over 700 pieces of art were created in our group. This is our fourth Creative Gathering, and our third year together. We are down about 120 pieces from last year. Several artists were unable to participate. We missed you!

Shown in no particular order. As I received permission, I added to the post. Many of the artists involved have been doing a bi-annual painting challenge for over 8 years. I am thrilled that so many choose to keep the challenge alive!

I am so honored to be among this group of creatives. Your work is amazing! I applaud your learning and experimenting. Your fearlessness. Your desire for growth. Your generosity and graciousness with fellow group members.

Thank you all for granting permission to share your work here and on the group Pinterest board. It is a gorgeous gallery!

Congratulations to all of the amazing artists who took part. Grab a cuppa, sit back, and browse the stunning art that follows. Enjoy!

Lookin’ Out My Back Door

 

Granite Mountain

Granite Mountain Close-up

Today was so crisp and clear, gave a great view of Granite Mountain.  The wall is new. There will be houses just beyond, but they are supposed to be single story homes. Sure hope so, or we will lose this view.

Did some painting today. Not on canvas or paper. These cork trivets (Ikea) will be put to good use soon.

Came across this painting from November. It needed to be fixed, and I finally got to it today. It had an unfortunate splotch. You can see the original here. I had to rework the sky area several times before I was happy with it. I added more ink, and the edges along the petals became “ruffled” in the process. I really like the effect.

I opened up the back door to get a clear shot of the mountain. Brought this song to mind, and it stayed all afternoon.

Have a great weekend and may you find no sorrow!

My January favorites.

Tomorrow I begin Leslie Saeta’s January 30 paintings in 30 days challenge.
Hope to see you there!

Wishing you Joy, Happiness and Health!

May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
The rain fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.
