Complete collection of my January 2015 “30 paintings in 30 days” challenge !

I have so enjoyed taking part in my second 30 in 30 challenge with the wonderful Leslie Saeta and over one thousand other artists world wide.  This time I noticed how much faster I am painting, using much more instinct, the ideas and designs seem to flow easier… as if every part of the painting process has been planned out, when in fact it hasn’t.  The challenges open up new doors to technique, subject matter and imagination.  I can’t wait for the next one !!

Thanks so much to everyone who has stopped by to share a kind comment and congratulations to all the other artists who have completed the challenge.  Please check out Leslie Saeta’s blog to see the complete collections of all the other artists :)

Here is my collection of paintings : 30 in 30 – January 2015

Day 30 – 30 Paintings in 30 Days – Woo Hoo !!! I made it ! :) “Sweetheart”

So happy to have been part of another amazing 30 paintings in 30 days challenge with the wonderful and soooo talented Leslie Saeta and 800+ artists from around the world. Please check Leslie’s blog to see all the other amazing artists and their beautiful paintings.

Tomorrow, January 31st I’ll post a completed collage of all 30 paintings :)

My last painting is “Sweetheart”, inspired by my Grandmother Isabella who did the most beautiful embroidery on linen tablecloths, napkins and handkerchiefs – I still have many of these beautiful heirlooms – so this is a tribute to her beautiful craft.

In my neighborhood there is a beautiful Maple tree where in the summer months neighbors and friends gather, talk, share, it’s a place of comfort and love. We call it “Maple Cafe”. Even in the winter, it is so beautiful <3
