Today’s offering is this shell painting, about 5″ x 7″ of what I have roughly identified as star shell, but I am absolutely no expert on shells. So if you can tell me the proper name, please do so. It’s painted with venetian red and ultramarine blue only.
It’s already Day 17 of this 30 day challenge! I can’t believe it. And I’m really proud of myself that I’ve produced a painting every day. A friend asked me recently if it’s inspiring, or really hard, or discouraging, as it goes by, and I’d have to say YES! it’s all of the above!! but at the end of the day I can look back on a collection of paintings that would absolutely not be in existence if it weren’t for the public pressure of committing to the challenge and posting the results daily.
Artist Leslie Saeta runs this 30 paintings in 30 days challenge in January and September and I participated about 1/2 of the days in January, so my skills and tenacity are improving… I’m looking forward to a more leisurely pace of working on a larger piece over several days, and yes, I could do that now, but with the start of school and family obligations, I haven’t found the time yet. But things are looking up!
Thanks for stopping by to read and if you’d like to leave me a comment, I’d love to hear from you.
