Sooooo..... ok. Here I am trying to play catch-up for Leslie Byrd Saeta's "30 Paintings in 30 Days" challenge. I have not painted since the 15th for one reason or another. My brother came for a visit for a few days and, since I had not seen him in a couple of years, yes, I took that time for myself. It was a wonderful visit, full of fun and talk and just enjoying each other's company, but definitely too short a visit.
Yesterday, I squeezed in two paintings, but had no time to post them. Today I managed three more after he left for home, so here they are............ Days # 16, #17, #18, #19 and #20. Tomorrow I should catch up with #21 and #22 and we are square again!
There is nothing like pressure to inspire you to new color combinations, an economy of brushstrokes and just plain fun experimenting. In these pieces, I have experimented with drama, color, subtlety, bold and bright choices and loved them all. What a way to learn and grow! There is nothing off limits in this challenge as long as I paint 30 in 30. :)
