30 Paintings In 30 Days?

For January, I painted 19 paintings. Whew. Only 2 were completely awful, in my opinion.

It was exhausting and I look forward to beating that record the next time the challenge comes around.

A couple things I learned:

  • It is really difficult to find something to paint after the 10th painting so stock up on images. I will spend the next few months taking photos every day so I’m prepared for next time.
  • A bad painting really isn’t anything to be scared of, in fact, you’ll probably have much fewer truly awful paintings than you would ever imagine.

I would love to show you my final paintings, but my new  card reader has already turned traitor and is in the trash. It appears I need to either send my camera a USB repair or buy several card readers to have on hand. This is on the heels of my laptop charger biting the dust.

Oh well, sometimes I just take after Gunnar and break everything I touch.

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you can see some cell phone pictures of the paintings.
