The September 30-Day Creative Gathering was a hit! Participation was down, but many artists who could not take part daily still contributed to the conversations and camaraderie.
Fourteen to Twenty pieces were posted each day in the daily albums. And roughly 586 pieces of art were created in the group this month. WOW!
Congratulations to all of you! You persevered through Hurricane Laura, California wildfires, health issues, COVID and all of the demands of life in this unusual year. Whether you created on a few days, or all 30, congratulations!
For a tough month, I think I did OK. It was a struggle for me. I created 16 really, really bad pieces of art. Haha. Many days I worked on two or three at a time. To increase the odds of having something decent to share. Haha. And yet, almost half of the art I posted is on my favorites list. How ’bout that?! Some of these will be posted for sale in my Society6 shop soon.
Thanks so much for following along! Your encouragement keeps me going!
You are a blessing!
I will be sharing art from the AMAZING artists in the group this weekend.
See you then!
Congratulations to the artists who took part in Leslie Saeta’s
September 2018, 30 Paintings in 30 days challenge!
In the beginning, I was working in batches, falling behind and catching up. I created two small series. That workflow sort of stuck with me, and in the end I have six small series. Maybe that gives a sense of continuity. Maybe not. Viewer favorites include days: 3, 13, 16, 17, 21, 23, 24, 27, and 28.
Which are your favorites? My picks are below.
Those of you who follow my blog know that the last six months I have been preoccupied with family health issues. I knew I had a busy September schedule. I fully expected that I would not be able to complete 30 paintings.
But guess what, I did. Ha ha! Thanks in LARGE part to your friendship and support. I am so grateful. The paintings I am satisfied with, are roughly as many as in earlier challenges. I am surprised and, again, thankful.
One reason I mention my struggles, is to let other artists know… we all struggle. I hope you don’t feel alone in that. Making new friends, cheering each other on and offering ideas. The gift of friendship is such a blessing. To the artists that reached out to me – thank you! So glad to have met you through the challenge!
Cheers to Leslie Saeta for bringing us together!
Cheers to the artists worldwide who took part!
I am grateful to those who followed my progress this month.
You are a blessing to me!
