Day 30 is Finally Here!

"Renewal" 30" x 24" oil on canvas

This has been a great challenge but I am so relieved that this is the last day! It's been a wonderful exercise because it has pushed me to be more creative and to go out of my comfort zone a few time. Hope everyone had a great time with this challenge and thanks to Leslie Saeta for hosting it!

Day 24 of 30 paintings in 30 days

7" x 12" Pastel

This is a little bit of an odd size because I decided to use one of my scrap pieces of pastel paper.
I have so many odd sizes that I am going to have to start using them! I do prefer to use standard sizes because they are much easier to frame!
I also tried to pick up colors that I usually don't use for this one, I need to do that more often because I may just discover a new color combination that I love!

Day 23 of 30 in 30 Challenge

8" x 8" pastel
Decided to continue exploring abstracts for day 23 of 30 in 30. I have not done a lot of abstracts in my art career and I have to say they are a lot more difficult than you think! This is a little study for a larger work, it's much easier for me to get it worked out on a smaller canvas or paper before trying to go big.

Our exhibit is called " Sea to Skyscapes" and we will be there also during the Ventura Artwalk on October 7 and 8.

Day 19 of 30 paintings in 30 days

6 x 8" pastel

Had fun with this today, going out of my comfort zone once again. I might go out of my comfort zone even further and try painting this much bigger and in oil.
