Today’s blog is to let you know I’ll be participating in Leslie Saeta’s 30 paintings in 30 days. This year, I’m not very organized which is a bad thing for something this demanding and stressful. But heck, nothing like a new year to push you out of your comfort zone and challenge you to live life to the fullest! Good thing, I managed to order 30+ panels and four new tubes of paint, so that’s a start. . . . Now what to paint – the hardest part of all.
About the challenge:
The challenge is not about finishing 30 gallery quality "perfect" paintings. It's about trying new things. It's about painting more often. It's about having fun and developing new habits. For me, it’s also about sharing what I love to do with others and getting great feedback from people who appreciate the art. Of course it’s delightful when someone loves a piece enough to purchase it. I don’t know of any “job” that has this type of gratification as a benefit! How lucky we are as long as we’re able to “put ourselves out there.” Ah, yet another challenge!
Enough about me – prepare for a wonderful experience of new paintings each day from hundreds of artists. Maybe you’ll find this a new hobby to add joy to your life.
