The 2023 February 30 day Creative Gathering has come to a spectacular end. Many new members joined us. Day one started off with a bang. 40 pieces of art posted. Our daily average was 33, and our final count was just under 1000 pieces of art created, 992.
I didn’t count the extra pieces that were posted in comments. Those would put the total well over 1025. Our September 2022 total was just over 700. Way to score, artists!
I know you will enjoy this peek at the amazing art that was created during our Creative Gathering. Be sure to visit our board on Pinterest to see them in more of a gallery view. It’s spectacular!

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
This is a small collection of the work that was created during the gathering. The group has grown to 132 members. In the past month, there were over 19 thousand posts, comments, and reactions shared within the group. That’s a lotta sharin’, talkin’, and cheerin’!
700 pieces were posted in the daily albums. 119 images were posted elsewhere. The day 1 album had the most posts, 31. The remaining daily album posts ranged between 17 and 30. This count is incomplete, however, due to misclassified posts.
The group was started as a continuation of the 30-Day challenge tradition. Many of the artists involved have been doing a bi-annual painting challenge for over 7 years. I am thrilled that so many choose to keep the challenge alive!
I am so honored to be among this group of creative talents. Your work is amazing! I applaud your learning and experimenting. Your desire for growth. Your generosity and graciousness with fellow group members. Congratulations everyone on our second fabulous event!
Thank you all for granting permission to share your work here and on the group Pinterest board. There are just over 100 images on the board. It is a fabulous gallery!
The art is shown in no particular order. You can click on the galleries (side by side images) to view the work without the title along the bottom. It will not, however, increase the size of the image. There is more art on the board from artists who write blogs. (They are directly pinable.)
The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. Albert Einstein

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep. Scott Adams
Don’t be dismayed at good-byes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetimes, is certain for those who are friends. Richard Bach
