Fall 2017 Collage
I only did 29 paintings because I worked on Day 3 for 2 days. I thought I would do that again, but as it turned out, after that, I did just do a daily painting–so 29 in 30 days–good enough for me.
Wow, finally done! So thankful I could do it this time…January just proved too difficult. Feel like a phoenix rising from the ashes. Next to clean up my space and meditate on what’s next. Wish I could keep this pace up, but I definitely need some down time…it’s just going to be a question, as always, of how much.
Don’t ask how I came up with this title. Anyway, it was a fun exercise. I wish I’d done more of these when I was younger. Does that make any sense?
The idea for this came to me as I was going to sleep last night. I guess that’s what painting everyday without stopping will do to you.
A variation on yesterday’s painting set up.
A lot of stuff to attend to today about the accident 11 months ago…it’s just the gift that keeps on giving. Meanwhile, I managed to paint this nonetheless.
Well, we’re almost at the end of the 30 days, so I tried this subject again and I am pleased with my progress over the last 3 weeks. I’m really curious what could happen if I could keep going without stopping…but I know I’m going to need at least a week off soon.
After yesterday, I really wanted to try a pear again. Chased by an apple.
I ran out of time and energy today, so it was back to basics. It’s really interesting to compare this to ones I did in previous challenges.
I have tried to find the color of these zinnia in oils to no avail…so I thought I’d play around with acrylics because there is a tube that comes closer…but it’s still problematic…Any other color tends to dull the purple and make it gray….maybe it’s just not the best subject for oils…or acrylics! Still, even approaching this wonderful color is fun.
