Life After the 30 in 30 ...
"Reflections on the Lake"
Oil, 12" x 12"
January 31st. What a nice day. That is, if you can forget the terrible rain and wind storm we had tonight. 115 miles per hour winds in Los Angeles and power failures everywhere (including our house). Just a minor issue.
For the past few years January 31st had been one of my favorite days. Why? Because the 30 in 30 Challenge is over! Painting a painting every day is hard. It's also awesome and one of the best things you can do for your art career. I must admit that the administrative duties that come with hosting the challenge are also very time consuming. So what am I going to do with my free time?
Let's see. I'll paint. I will work on marketing my abstracts to interior designers. I can finish my already overdue newsletter. And find someone in the garment district to make my hand-painted canvas bags. I will start the three commissions I now have due. And finish my financials for January 2016. This year I am going to try really hard to do my financials every month and not wait till a week before taxes are due. We shall see if that happens. It probably won't.
The painting featured here is the one that is taught in my February 2016 online palette knife class. You can sign up here and the class only costs $35.00.

I really like this painting! Thanks for hosting the 30 in 30 - it is a great way to 'meet' new artists

Thanks Val! It's always harder to paint a painting when I am video taping a lesson. But I do love the finished painting. I am also thrilled you liked the 30 in 30.
Thank you for allowing me to participate - I didn't make every day - recovering from a leg broken in 2 places and ankle broken in 2 places in auto wreck 9/29 - not healing so lots of PT which can be ruff some days. Loved seeing the different kinds of art, felt a little intimated with posting my art because it is sooo different. Will do it again for sure!
