Thirty Paintings in 30 Days - Day One
Acrylic Abstract Painting
48" x 36"
I am finally back in the studio! Of course I am in my studio in Ventura Beach and loving every minute. I had a great long sea glass hunt with my best friend today followed by a fabulous dinner with Dave at our favorite restaurant here in Ventura. How lucky am I? What a great way to start the year.
2016 was a glorious year. Lots of wonderful memories with my family and art. I feel as if I am expanding my art business in a good way and look forward to the many exciting plans and projects in the new year. My theme this year for the 30in30 Challenge is "Everything Magnolia" as all of my paintings will be designed to fit in the beautiful homes and farmhouse style created by Joanna Gaines, star of the fabulous TV show Fixer Upper. I spent two weeks in Waco this past year and fell in love with everything she does. Of course I should mention her husband Chip as he is the "other half" of the Magnolia story. And he is awesome too.

Sp join me for a fun January!

I am so sorry for the glitch last night. It was 100% my fault. (I can't believe I did this but I actually posted the link on the AHA blog and not the 30in30 blog. That's a first!). Some of you were REALLY frustrated and I completely understand. Just so you know, the system is completely automated. The post goes live at 12:00am PST. I use a new system because in the past the blogger blog was way too unreliable. I do think this system is great.

Speaking of not perfect, once again I forgot to put my name in the title of the piece.

My painting is #132. I don't have a website, I tried to put my Facebook page # in the URL but was not accepted. Do I put my facebook ID in the 'name' category along with my name & name of painting. I did not get my name under #132, so wondering how to do it for the posting on Jan 2?

You can just leave the line blank where it asks for a link. Under name please put your name,

Hi Leslie, I want to wish you a very Happy New Year, lots of inspiration and creativity! Thanks for this wonderful Challenge where we all get to surpass ourselves and learn a lot in the process. It's so nice to see what other artists are doing and we make friends along the way. That's a great gift in itself. Thanks again!

I wish you would share what problems you are having. I am here to help. And the challenge is about so much more than posting! It's about painting every day. Let me know if I can help.

I filled the info page and submitted it but another info page pops up.

Can you provide more information? Once you upload it and save it then your painting will appear on the 30 in 30 blog. Also there are multiple pages of the paintings posted so be sure to go to page two if you are looking for your painting.
