Wow, got my 30 paintings done! It was tough to really get paintings done every day, life does get in the way. But I was determined. I did find that I was more willing to try new things since I had to finish so many paintings, which I loved because it really expanded my creativity. And also found out some things worked & some didn’t, but you have to be willing to mess it up in order to find that perfect ‘something’.
Here are the rest of them:
(23/30) Nature’s Symphony 12″x12″ Mixed Media on Canvas
(24/30) Mini Ruins #14 5″x7″ Mixed Media on Paper
(25/30) Supernatural 12″x12″ Mixed Media on Canvas
(26/30) Mini Ruins #15 5″x7″ Mixed Media on Paper
(27/30) Somewhere in Time 6″x8″ Mixed Media on Canvas
(28/30) Whispers #2 6″x6″ Mixed Media on Canvas
(29/30) Whispers from the Earth 6″x8″ Mixed Media on Canvas
(30/30) Jeweled Mystery 12″x12″ Mixed Media on Canvas
Close up detail of Jeweled Mystery. I added some iridescent paint just for fun!
Here are the latest in my daily painting challenge. Numbers 17 & 18 I have been working on for a while, but I think I finally finished them. Also had a hard time photographing #17 so I will need to go get it scanned. Number 18 is a large version of a small 6″x12″ painting I had done several months back. I really liked it so I wanted to try a larger version of it. I am not as happy with the large version for some reason.
Numbers 20, 21 & 22 I did while on a trip to the beach. I did not want to take my paints down there so I took my Aquatone Watercolor sticks. I love those things! I did have to play with them and did several versions before I ended up with these three. They were fun!

Well, 8 more paintings to go!!! I guess I should make a trip to the studio…
First of all it has been way too long since I have posted anything on my blog! It has been a rough 1st half of the year, but let’s see if I can change that.
I committed to do a “30 paintings in 30 days” challenge with a group of artists, and I thought I would post daily my paintings and any thoughts about the challenge. I started it yesterday, so here are my 2 paintings so far…
Whispers #1 (1/30)
It will be rough to actually do a painting each day, but I may do more than one on some days to make up for it! I know tomorrow I may not get a chance to but watch for 2 hopefully on Thursday!
By the way, if you are interested in any of these paintings just let me know!
