September 2018 Painting Challenge In Review

 

 

 

WOO WHOO!

Congratulations to the artists who took part in Leslie Saeta’s
September 2018, 30 Paintings in 30 days challenge!

In the beginning, I was working in batches, falling behind and catching up. I created two small series. That workflow sort of stuck with me, and in the end I have six small series. Maybe that gives a sense of continuity. Maybe not. Viewer favorites include days: 3, 13, 16, 17, 21, 23, 24, 27,  and 28.

Which are your favorites? My picks are below.

 

 

 

 

Those of you who follow my blog know that the last six months I have been preoccupied with family health issues. I knew I had a busy September schedule. I fully expected that I would not be able to complete 30 paintings.

But guess what, I did. Ha ha! Thanks in LARGE part to your friendship and support. I am so grateful. The paintings I am satisfied with, are roughly as many as in earlier challenges. I am surprised and, again, thankful.

One reason I mention my struggles, is to let other artists know… we all struggle. I hope you don’t feel alone in that. Making new friends, cheering each other on and offering ideas. The gift of friendship is such a blessing. To the artists that reached out to me – thank you! So glad to have met you through the challenge!

 

Cheers to Leslie Saeta for bringing us together!
Cheers to the artists worldwide who took part!

This started as an abstracted landscape. But I botched it. I kept going, and this is the result. Passable. There are some redeeming qualities in the sky. Blooms and soft areas.

 

For Those In Peril On The Sea
Eternal Father strong to save
Whose arm has bound the restless wave
Who bids the mighty ocean deep
It’s own appointed limits keep
O hear us when we cry to Thee
For those in Peril on the sea
Oh Christ whose voice the waters heard
And hushed their raging at Thy word
Who walkest on the foamy deep
And how amidst the storm did sleep
O hear us when we cry to Thee
For those in Peril on the sea
Eternal Father strong to save 
Whose arm has bound the restless wave, 
Who bids the mighty ocean deep 
It’s own appointed limits keep, 
O hear us when we cry to Thee 
For those in Peril on the sea
Oh Christ, the Lord of hill and plain, 
O’er which our traffic runs amain. 
By mountain pass or valley low, 
Wherever, Lord our brethren go, 
Protect them by Thy guarding hand 
From every peril on the land
O Spirit, whom the Father sent 
To spread abroad the firmament. 
Oh wind of heaven, by Thy might 
Save all who dare the eagle’s flight. 
And keep them by thy watchful care 
From every peril in the air
O Trinity of love and power, 
Our brethren shield in danger’s hour.
From rock and tempest, fire, and foe 
Protect them wheresoe’er they go. 
That evermore shall rise to Thee, 
Glad praise from air and land and sea
