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!

February 2018 Painting Challenge Review

 

 

I don’t know what it was about this challenge. But it seemed to fly by. Maybe it was having a month to recuperate from the holidays. Or the shorter month that made the 30 days not feel like 30. Or because this is my tenth challenge. All I know is, I felt less stressed and pressured than in past events. And yes, I know that the stress and pressure came from me, myself, and I.

I had a good first day, but got off to a mixed start. I felt I was posting a lot of “redo’s” or unfinished pieces. But even with that, I just felt they needed more work. I wasn’t in a serious fret mode. By midpoint I think I caught my stride.

Below you can see my favorites from the month, and viewer favorites. Of all the paintings, there are only five that I do not like. One of those made it on the viewer list (Mingus). Go figure.

I had some bad news this month, and there are major changes going on. Please know, each of you, your visits, and our conversations – have been very important to me. Thank you!

I will be adding these to my (nonexistent) Etsy shop. Most are still available, minus the giveaways. Prices range from $30 – $100. If you are interested, let me know in a comment, and leave your email address (I won’t publish that part).

Here we are. The end of the challenge. And I have to say, February made it fly by. Tomorrow I will share all 30 paintings in a collage. I will share my favorites, and tell you which paintings were the most popular by page views.

See you then!
