Thank you Leslie Saeta for bringing us all together. I am in awe not only of your wonderful art, but of how much you accomplish. I really feel I have grown as an artist, with each of your challenges. With this one especially. I am much more at ease with taking risks, and working through difficulties.
Thank you to those who took time to vote in Sea’s Art Party. Have you looked at the prizes in the giveaway? Don’t forget, voters are eligible!
Cindy, thank you for including me in your artist interviews this month. I appreciate the opportunity to introduce myself to your readers. It was such a pleasure to learn about the amazing artists you featured.
Sea Dean, thank you for creating the fun and fabulous Art Party! I really don’t know how you three manage to paint each day, write blog posts, run these huge month-long events, as well as running a business.
Sandy, thank you for nominating me for the 5 Day Art share on Facebook.
And a SUPER MEGA THANK YOU to everyone who followed my progress this month. Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, I really value your opinions! Thanks for the shares, and +1’s, likes and pins! Thanks to my new blog followers!
Thank you to Sea for my special birthday gift. So gorgeous!
And even though they were not birthday presents, thank you to Sandy and Kathy for the chance to have an original piece of your fabulous art! I am blessed!
Hope I am not forgetting anyone. But the way my mind works, and sometimes doesn’t, ya’ never know.
I numbered the paintings in the collage, because I would like your opinion. Do you have a favorite? I am prepping postcards for Kat Sloma’s Liberate your Art swap. Below are some of my favorites, but I’d really love to hear what you think!
Wind blows cold, alone they stand, branches reach as if they are holding hands. S.M.D.
We made it! High fives all around! Yes, that means everyone who took Leslie’s challenge, even if you did not post everyday, or produce a full 30 paintings. Effort counts!
My painting today is another save. Actually I think I started three different times on this canvas. It has been sitting for months in between.
There is a grungy black, mucky mix as the base. I had too much turquoise from a piece I was working on the other day. Can’t waste paint. So I spread it on the canvas with a palette knife. I let it dry a bit, and then made scratch marks. I just now am realizing, I maybe should delineate the trunks that are overlapping.
I started the trunks by dripping paint, for a random placement. Then went back with a brush to add width to them. The branches and trunks wrap around the sides and top.
Tomorrow all the participants will post a collage of their work. Today, I would like to share the collections I have from this month. There are also some odds and ends, I’ll show those tomorrow in the collage.
Flowers and Trees
Two more floral pieces have been started, to complete Fantasia. And I have finished pieces for the last three collections, Feme, bloom and friends. I will share those with you soon.
