Can't say enough about what a great challenge this was. Thank you so much Leslie Saetafor putting all of this together for all of us to enjoy. This challenge pushed me to get out to the studio, get it cleaned up and to get back to painting. There were lots of days I just had to force myself to pick up a brush but as the month went on, I found myself looking forward to seeing what I could get done. To be honest, I am surprised that I have 30 paintings especially with all that was going on in the month of September to keep me away from my easel. Thank goodness for catch up days. Very pleased to have the opportunity to keep learning, growing and having fun with my art.

11x14 oil on canvas
Well, I did finish 30 paintings in 30 days even if I had to do a marathon today to catch up. All but one of the paintings today had already been started either en plein air and needed some major touches, or just a painting that didn't work to my satisfaction and I went back in to fix spots so I would feel a bit better about them. It is rare for me that a piece is started outside and then completed on the spot. There is always something I want to fix and living with a painting until it is dry helps rest the eye so coming back weeks later you see it with fresh eyes. Yes, this is at Sprewell Bluff, a piece I started several years ago and never finished. I still see things I'd like to fix, but I'm so much happier with this now than it was when I took it off the landfill gallery shelf. Total paint time today was about 9 hours.
On to the rest of my life!

11x14 oil on canvas
Today was a fun day. Leslie came and painted with me and both of us finished our paintings early. Leslie painted trees and I painted begonias. Not so sure about the size of the pot compared to the trees or how to fix the perspective, as the pot is supposed to be sitting on the ground with the trees in the background, but once this painting drys and I live with it a bit, maybe I'll see what needs to be done to make the pot sit realistically in the landscape.
On to day 27. I am still one painting behind.

8x10 oil on canvas "Just a pepper"
Not much to say about this one except that my studio is a lot cleaner than it was. I spent my time organizing and throwing out stuff I didn't need or I needed to give away. It feels good to have a clean studio.
On to day 26.
