30 in 30 Painting Challenge is Finished... aw man.
This is my last painting of the challenge, and now I don't think I'll be able to walk away from painting entirely.
Well Rats... The Challenge I thought would be horrible is finishing up tonight. 30 Paintings in 30 Days sounded like an insane thing to do, and I was so mad and frustrated when I began! How on earth has it happened that I really don't want to stop? I've learned a lot in these 30 days, watching the others involved in this challenge post their work each day has given me a new 'puzzle' to think about. I wish I could watch each one in progress as I try to pick apart the way the piece came to completion. I found that although I really don't know what I'm doing at all, it is becoming part of my day and like my coffee, I'm not sure how I'll be without it. Just going out there and trying has been a really hard thing for me, as I expect perfection before practice. I have learned a lot of what not to do, and am slowly getting a grasp on what 'TO" do. The practice is becoming less painful all the time. Hopefully some of the others in the group will want to continue at a more decent pace and still keep posting beautiful things for me to look at, and provide me with that much needed 'kick in the butt'. Maybe the winter will go by faster this year...
