September 1st is the first day of the 30 in 30 painting challenge hosted by Leslie Saeta.This is a wonderful opportunity to challenge yourself to do art every day of the month. It's a great time to experiment with techniques, practice forming those good work habits and to meet new friends from around the world as you post your works to Leslie's sight.
She usually gets over 1000 artist in 25 countries participating. Not only is this great fun but it's also a great marketing opportunity as you post your work on her blog daily and sell works.
For more information and to sign up see Leslie's blog at http://30paintingsin30days.weebly.com/
This will be my fourth challenge and I love doing it every time. (Although I have to admit that it can be a bit stressful.)
This September is not without it's challenges. I will be returning from a short vacation on the first to celebrate my daughter's birthday. (Happy birthday Sam.) Then on to a art demo at 317 Studio & Gallery that Friday night. The following Sunday, Monday you will find me at the Lake Forest Art Festival only to return home to give a workshop on Wednesday and do my last Rockton River Market. For the rest of the month I have another large show- Greenwich Village Sept. 19 &20 th and a fun family wedding the following weekend. Throw in a baby shower and host a plein air session and I'm set.
So I'm prepared...
I hope, who knows?
I have painted some paintings in advance for those days that I won't be able to do it. We'll see how this goes but it's so much fun I couldn't stand missing it. My friend calls this cheating but even Leslie will suggest doing some paintings in advance as she states, "There are no rules."
So why don't you sign up too and see how it goes at http://30paintingsin30days.weebly.com/
I will be posting my painting on my blog and on Facebook daily. See you there!
