6x6 oil by Wendie Thompson
So once again I have taken up the gauntlet of Leslie Byrd Saeta's 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge! This is my third time entering and last year I was not able to complete it as my Father passed away and the swirl around that...well it just was no longer the priority.
September is a very busy month for me as I still have a number of Plein Air Competitions I am in as well as the undulating family life I am involved with. I will most likely end up with more than 30 paintings in September...time will tell.
So I have decided that for the challenge I will paint small pieces (no larger than 6x6 or 5x7) and while I normally paint from life, all of these works will be out of my head...no photo, no model, no plein air...just grey matter. You are invited to view whats floating around in my mind!!
You can follow my daily paint throwing here and also on Leslie's blog: http://lesliesaeta.blogspot.com/ (I heard she was closing in on 800 artists in 22 countries who have signed up to do the challenge! How cool is that!!)
