30 In 30 Wrap Up

30 Paintings in 30 Days Wrap Up

 Well, I made it through 21 days of the 30 in 30 challenge, before the flu and pneumonia struck.

The painting in the center is the one I did using a photograph I took at Findlay Market in Cincinnati.

What I learned during the challenge:
1.  You can have a very workable plan
2. You can have everything ready.
3.  You can work your plan.
4.  All bets are off if you get the flu and pneumonia.

I did have all of the above and was totally sidelined for the last 9 days of the challenge.  

I started painting figures.
Some are much better than others.
But I set out to do it and I did it.
And I showed you along the way,
even when I didn't want to.

That is a total break through!

I also was not able to complete my blogaversary giveaway
so I will be doing that now.
I'll be extending it for as long as it takes me to give away all the goodies I had planned for the month.

So, gittr done!



  1. Hey Sharon....I sure hope you're feeling better! Sorry to hear you had the flu and pneumonia! Yikes!

  2. Thanks so much Cindy. I am finally feeling better. The problem with having any kind of auto immune issue, it takes 3-5 times longer to get over anything. The proverbial hang nail may take a week or longer to heal. But all is well, now.

  3. Wow, Sharon, decided to come here today and check out what you have been up to and found you've been up to talking about what I've been up to!! Thank you so much for listening to the show and for telling others about it. I'm so glad you found value in Dawn's interview...I learn a lot every time I talk with her.

  4. You win the award for great attitude, so glad you are feeling better, too. It is a joy to see your paintings all together like this. You have a very bold hand and an obvious joy for color...

    1. Thanks Meredith! I knew when I was licked! It's funny, you don't think you have a style until you make one of these collages and you see a body of work together, and then you realize, OMG! Look, I have a style.
