Here is the collage of paintings that I did for the week 2 of Leslie Saeta's 30 paintings in 30 days challenge. I am not sure why, but it seemed to be a bit easier this week. Guess it was a bit more planning in advance of the painting day that helped to get it through. It has been still an emotional roller coaster of feeling good when a painting comes together to being down when you think it's not, although finding that desperation definitely helps get something you like.
So much to learn from all the other artists who are making it look easy and are doing such wonderful paintings. Nice way to gauge, however, where you are in comparison to lots of others and what types of themes they are picking and how they are achieving getting there.
Getting optimistic that I will make it to the end and know that I am glad to be getting something on paper. Some I am quite pleased with, others tell me there is a long way to go. But isn't that the best part of painting, knowing you never can be done?
Thanks for stopping by, know that some of you are in the challenge with me, have a great time painting this week.
