I had just set myself a very realistic goal of completing 2 paintings a week in 2013, when my artist friend Leslie posted about participating in a 30-paintings-in-30-days challenge. I guess I am more competitive than I imagined--instantly I wanted to accept the challenge too!
Well, this challenge begins tomorrow, so I will sleep on it tonight before committing. It will be tough to accomplish a painting a day this January: I have a huge artsy upholstery project (pieced cushions for three sofas and 30 chairs), a book sculpture for the library fundraiser and a presentation to plan all in the next few weeks. Not to mention chores. On the other hand, I might need a daily break from the sewing machine!
Girl With a Snowball. This is the acrylic on canvas painting I finished last week for the figure exhibit at Crossings this month, the opening is next Friday. A bit crazy that she is wearing a union suit and barefoot with a snowball, but that just adds to her determination. The painting is 12 x 36 - I like this canvas format, filling it with a figure.
