First off I need to explain that there are no rules!!! This is just a challenge to get artists to paint more. I hardly need this encouragement, as you see I am at my easel almost daily! I still do the painting challenge, as I enjoy the exposure and seeing the art that other artists are creating. Its very inspiring, and there is a nice comradery amongst the artists.
This is Leslie’s 9th painting challenge, and my seventh time joining her. I usually try to have a few paintings completed, as it is not easy for me to have a painting every day. Although there are many daily painters, I sadly, am not one. I am getting close however! I now can sometimes finish one in a day, and then touch it up the next day. This is when I need to one rule that I try to adhere to:
Does that sound easy? It’s truly not. You see, sometimes you are in a wonderful painting moment, a blissful moment, when every stroke is magical. This is usually a sign you are done, but you are having so much fun you just cannot stop. And this is when you can ruin your painting. So I am learning patience, and when to stop, as I have ruined a painting enough times that I now am heading the warning signs!
That being said, I have a lot of paintings planned for the next 30 days. You can also request something, as I love hearing ideas from you!
So please follow me the next 30 days, as I post and paint daily. I hope you enjoy seeing the art I create as much as I enjoy creating it!
