Whoa! Am I behind in sharing! I have 3 posts in the works. But I have been struggling to keep up with the 30 day challenge. Busy days, and very little time to sit and paint. Staying up late has not been the solution it usually is. I have painted just about as many horrible abstracts, as you see paintings here. Working in pairs or threes, hoping for at least one good something to post for the day. Still ticking, though. 😉
Here they are. The month so far. All a combination of watercolor, digital collage, poetry, or music. Patterns, and sometimes pen. Below are close ups. You may still have to zoom in to see finer details. You can see them individually on Instagram.
For me, July started slow. Or maybe it was just me feeling like a sloth from the heat. Chug, chug, chug, then whoosh! I was in the mood for flowers this month. Still, I did manage to change it up here and there. I made an effort to use scraps, small bits of paper. And I had fun with those. The largest I worked this month was 5 x 5 inches. That felt like the perfect size for a daily painting.
I found a terrific video about painting wet on wet cats. Furballs. She also does birds, dragonflies and flowers that look really fun. I have since done about a dozen furry critters, that may turn up in a pattern soon. I stopped my watercolor month at 30. Monday was crammed, and I decided to cut myself some slack. I even snuck in a short nap. Actually, it snuck up on me. 🥴
August means starting my planning for the September 30-Day Creative Gathering. What was it Cathy (comic strip) would say? ACK! 😲😄
✨✨ Coming soon! Our ninth gathering! Wowzers! ✨✨
Falling leaves placed at #1497 of 1723 with 15 votes. I knew it would not place well when I voted and saw all of the fabulous florals. So gorgeous! But I am happy with this design and will do a few more colorways.
Thanks so much for following along with me this month. It went by fast, didn’t it? And thank you for taking the time to vote on Falling Leaves! I know it is a chore.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! 🙂 Chat with you soon!
I’m showing two weeks of paintings here. I’ve had technical difficulties with my site. Basically I have used up all of my allotted space on the server. Which means I am unable to upload new images. Not good for an art blog.
So here they are. Slightly out of order I think. Most are 4 x 4’s. I have also done 4 x 6 and the last several days I have been using 5 x 5’s.
