We’ve rounded the last corner. Heading down the home stretch now.

Week One Of The 30-Day Creative Gathering
I had so much fun with this texture. I scribbled with an Inktense pencil. I love how it turned out.
I am having so much fun. As you know, I have not been posting art the last few months. Only one or two pieces since the September Gathering. I’ve missed painting!
Even so, I was really stressed about starting again. Not sure of what to paint. Afraid I might flub it. You can see in day 1, how tight and linear I was. I still like it. The others are much more loose.
I am noticing that the parchment (creamy white) looks somewhat dingy here. It is the low resolution of the image. The color is clean, soft and bright in the paintings.
Well, back to work for me. I have to work on my Spoonflower design, due Tuesday at noon. I have some admin. tasks before I can hit the sack. I better get to it!
It would be possible to describe everything scientifically,
but it would make no sense;
it would be without meaning,
as if you described a Beethoven symphony as
a variation of wave pressure.
Days 21 Through 25 of The 30-Day Creative Gathering
I had so much fun with this series. I painted first, with acrylics and/or watercolor. The first two have pots that were collaged by hand. I continued in Photoshop, adding collage with digital patterns. Some of which are just copies of paper patterns I have.
You might ask, “why not just collage the paper by hand?”. And that is a fair question. In photoshop I can change the color, stretch or shrink the pattern, change the direction. I can try everything. I can also change my mind in the final stages and rework the individual pieces.
I hope you enjoy these as much as I do. We are in the final week of the gathering now, and I have started a new series. But I will be revisiting this style in months to come.
