30-Day Creative Gathering Collage

I’m so glad we had a 30-day challenge! Whew! And I am so thankful I was able to participate and complete 30 daily paintings! I had serious doubts I would last the whole month. And with the extra work of organizing the Facebook group, I am definitely ready for a break. Haha.

I think it has been a great month! A quick one for sure. I plan to keep up the daily painting, after our out of town company has left. I have ideas I want to try. And I have 30 4 x 6’s ready to go. Haha. Also several paintings on canvas I need to finish. I do like the 8 x 8 size I worked with this month. Not too big, and not too small.

I’m pleased with all the paintings I completed this month. There were a few I tweaked. And a few more I need to make small changes to. There are only two that I think are duds. Days 25 and 29. But I do plan to practice those techniques more.

Below is a collage of viewer favorites, according to blog visits. I am not sure how accurate that is, as I had fewer visits to the blog than I usually had during one of Leslie’s challenges.

This collage shows my favorites. I worked with collage, and stencils. Acrylic, pencil and pen. Layering elements. Worked with watercolor, and favorite familiar themes. I’d love to know which ones you like best. And why.

So grateful to all of those that followed along, and shared encouraging words. Thank you for sharing your ideas on how to improve, or suggesting new tools and techniques. The challenge would be meaningless without our conversations.

Big high five to all the participating members. You created amazing work this month! For some of you, just starting again after a long hiatus was a major accomplishment. You each have your own success story. Own it! And share it in the group!

Congratulations everyone!

    Gosh, the collection of favourites and the collection of your favorites look really terrific all together like that. I think you really stretched yourself artistically this month. You’ve always been brave at trying new techniques, but this month I really felt it is coming together for you. Your art shows confidence, a new boldness, more harmony. I think life has a way of showing up in our art or maybe it’s the other way around. Either way, it’s terrific and I’m happy for you and I’m glad to be on this journey with you. Lots of love and “talk” soon.

      Haha, thank you Laurelle. Maybe I should be brave before the challenge, to avoid any duds. Haha😆Chat soon!


    High 5 SHEILA!!

    I loved the challenge and as always, I loved seeing your work.

    Thank you SO MUCH for having this challenge I really enjoyed it. And sometimes, if I didnt have art to post that day, I would just do a very small piece.

    It was fun and got me out of my rut. Thats the purpose, to have fun, right? 😀❤

    Cant wait for the next one 😀

    Super month Sheila – so many wonderful art pieces were done by everyone. I like your favourites better than the blog favourites especially the two with the dark blue background and the cactus as well. Now it is time to clean up the garden and work on things for Christmas – so not much experimenting for me. Take care and thanks again.
