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!
I intended to do a BIG, colorful bouquet of mixed flowers. Pink and greens and white and yellow. Flowers filling the page and flowing off of it. But then I started laying down petals with a dagger brush… and I let go of the plan. These spiky, delicate blooms were just too pretty to cover up. Or maybe I just had too much time invested. LOl. 🙂
There is more detail in the centers than shows up here. A rusty, loose base with indigo “seeds”. This is looking much too flat to me. I may go back in and add texture to the background, and deepen the indigo table.
Tomorrow I will share a collage of all 30 pieces I created this month. I will also share a collection of art created by all of the participants in this month’s creative challenge.
I hope you will stay tuned!
A goal is a DREAM with a deadline. Napoleon Hill
The significance of a man is not in what he attains, but in what he longs to attain. Kahlil Gibran
None of us, including me, ever do great things. But we can all do small things, with great love, and together we can do something wonderful. Mother Teresa
Maybe I should call this mellow yellow. Haha. Catching up. One more to do for today.
Color directly influences the soul. Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the hammers, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another purposively, to cause vibrations in the soul. Wassily Kandinsky
Sun-bleached bones were most wonderful against the blue – that blue that will always be there as it is now after all man’s destruction is finished. Georgia O’Keeffe
