I intended to do a BIG, colorful bouquet of mixed flowers. Pink and greens and white and yellow. Flowers filling the page and flowing off of it. But then I started laying down petals with a dagger brush… and I let go of the plan. These spiky, delicate blooms were just too pretty to cover up. Or maybe I just had too much time invested. LOl. 🙂
There is more detail in the centers than shows up here. A rusty, loose base with indigo “seeds”. This is looking much too flat to me. I may go back in and add texture to the background, and deepen the indigo table.
Tomorrow I will share a collage of all 30 pieces I created this month. I will also share a collection of art created by all of the participants in this month’s creative challenge.
I hope you will stay tuned!

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!
I am grateful to those who followed my progress this month.
You are a blessing to me!
