Day 18 of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge
I must confess that I have not painted any paintings in the last two days. I have done art related activities, but no paintings. Yesterday, I had two of my art friends over and we visited down in my studio about what we've been up to and made plans for upcoming meetings and brainstormed about possible ideas for future shows and events.
Then today after church, I spent the better part of the afternoon installing new window blinds in my studio. Wow, was that a job! Nothing went as planned. The measurements were right, but the idiot who designed the brackets never had to install them, I'm sure.
So the blinds look great after I had to modify the dumb brackets to make them work. Then clean up the mess and did some reorganizing in my studio. That took so much longer than I had ever planned for. But in the process, I did find several new reference photos that I think will make great paintings in the coming weeks.
Here's what it looks like now from my chair in my studio. Check out all those paintings I finished so far. - 13 paintings so far.
But this challenge has been just that - a real challenge. And I must admit it's one I don't think I can keep up with any longer. Working a full time job, a part time job, and now needing to paint larger paintings for upcoming shows, I think I won't be doing one every day.
I will try to do something on my art almost every day, but it won't be one a day. I'll continue to post as often as I can when I have something worth showing you.
So till later, thanks for following me so far.
