One great thing about abstract art is that it often looks great when seen from different angles. It’s like getting 2 for 1! I rotated this several times and decided I still liked it best as it was painted. What do you think? And why?
Again, I am inspired by Hiroshi Matsumoto. His use of color. The marriage between warm, rusty earth, and soft pinkish buff. I loved this before the addition of Turquoise. I do think it adds a pop of light and juxtaposition.
My family could only afford to get me the box of eight Crayola crayons, but I craved the one with all 24 colours. I wanted magenta and turquoise and silver and gold. Joni Mitchell
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!
