What Say You?
January brings cold, snow, sleet, hail, rain
and 30 paintings in 30 days.
I'm still exhausted from the September Challenge.
My question to you all is,
Would you do it if you were me?
When I first heard about the challenge,
my eyes crossed with the daunting challenge.
But now that I've had a few days to consider it,
I'm beginning to think,
I may not make it all the way through, like I have with the other 2 challenges,
but there are things I want to paint and things I want to learn to paint.
Here's what I did during the first challenge.
Several are missing because the template didn't have room for 30 anythings.
I stretched my daring to paint a chicken which I was very pleased with,
and a whole series of beach paintings.
I painted my first still life with the tennis shoes and sea shells.
So that was all good.
These are from the September 2013 challenge.
I really made an effort to make things easier on myself
by being more organized.
I'm trying to survive Christmas right now with a sinus infection and a kidney problem.
So I don't know how much of that organization will happen this time.
But on this past challenge I learned an awful lot.
My painting really improved and that is an important part of the challenge.
I sold several of these really quickly and I had a great time,
even though I drove to Oklahoma for a private lesson with Jerry Yarnell,
Jim and I went to Myrtle Beach,
I still completed the challenge.
Please give me your opinion and advice.
Shall I paint or not
and do you want to see it as it happens?
