January 30 Paintings In 30 Days



Sheila M. Delgado, Jan 2017 30 in 30















At the start of the challenge, I had a “grand plan”. I recently discovered a new technique. At least, new to me. Laly Mille has an encaustic inspired method. I have long been wanting to work in encaustic, so I was really excited when I read her post.

I worked to get ahead on the challenge. I started with five small canvases. Mini Mingus views. And guess what. I bombed. That’s what I get for getting too ambitious. And for not practicing on just one first. One failure would have been easier to take!

From day one, I felt behind schedule. And slightly dissappointed. I hoped to post the January pieces for sale.  I will try the technique again. I think I can salvage the duds.

If you have been reading my posts, you know I have had a lot of duds this month. Many “do-over’s”. The big surprise is. I am happy with everything I have worked on this month. Somehow, it all worked out.

Here are my favorites.

Sheila M. Delgado, Jan 2017 favorites


The days with the most page views were: 3, 4, 7, 13, 17, 20, 21. Day 21 was the highest by far.  What was your favorite?

I am so grateful to all of you who followed along with me this month. Your observations and comments helped to carry me through the difficult days. Such a blessing to wake up and be greeted by friends!  (Made new friends too!) Thank you for taking the time.

I have gone way over my data limit, so I will not be commenting on the collages until I return home. I will catch up though! No posts until then as well. I did bring a few supplies with me, and I will be painting when I can.

Happy resting if you are going to rest! Joyful creating to you always! Blessed 2017 to all!
