Learning a lot Painting for this 30 Paintings in 30 Days...

"Sweet End of the Day"   Acrylic, 8x8"
$125, plus shipping

 Yes, I'm learning a lot about how I want to paint during this 30 in 30, but right now, I am too tired to tell you about it!  I'm not sure if the title of this painting is directed more towards how I feel right now or towards describing the painting...
 
I'm doing this challenge a little differently this time.  You may have noticed I skipped a couple days of posting.  Basically, I have about 7 paintings started.  As I get interested in one above the others, I will take it to completion.  I have another one completed that I will show you tomorrow.  Of the rest, I am not sure how many will see the light of day, but I am very interested in this way of working, for reasons I am...you guessed it...too tired to explain right now.

I admire how my friend Sandra is doing her 30 in 30 blog posts, explaining what she learned from each painting.  Unfortunately, some of what I learned today came from working on a different painting, so it wouldn't really make sense to you in this context, anyway.

But I am bursting full of the new possibilities I am seeing in my acrylics!

Thank you for the outpouring of support I received in my call for help for my friend Julie trying to learn how to post to her new blog from her iPhone.  You all were incredible, and Julie is now posting and is busy redecorating her blog.

Thanks for Watching...

Hi Meredith, I am so happy that you are able to verbalize your thoughts. I think we all are in some kind of transition on how to work and that it does actually carry over for a while (with me at least). I love this picture, the fact it doesn't expressly tell you in detail what it is, but you recognize it, and then there is the color. Luscious. Sure appreciate all the support you are giving in this challenge, a quarter of the way through it now.

Love this but I especially love the plateaus on the mountains. I admire you doing the challenge this time. It was way beyond my ability right now!

Meredith Adler said...

Thank you all for your wonderful comments!

Carol--I love that reminder to follow my heart...glad you are here, as always...

Nelvia--I really appreciate your support, too, and I agree, we are in transition on some level.

Hi Julie--fun to see you here! I am thrilled you joined us for the challenge and are starting up your blog...happy to help any way I can...

Hi Meredith. It has been a while. I don't know if you remember me or not, but I have been reading your blog posts via email and I have been watching you grow as an artist! You even inspired me to do the 30 in 30 challenge! I am working in watercolors now. Every now and then I let the dust fly and use my pastels, but mostly it is watercolors.

Your paintings are so much bolder now. Your paintings have feeling, if that makes sense? You are taking risks and it is paying off! Anyway, I thought I would let you know I am still here watching your progress.

Take care.

Doug

I have wonderful memories of walking the beach at sunrise and this is what your painting reminds me of.

I like hearing about your method of working - and I may try something similar next week as I have a few starts and underpaintings. Lately I have been moving away from my photo references and it's a lot of fun.

Meredith Adler said...

Doug! Of course I remember you! I am so glad to hear from you and to know know you are still around and still painting...and I'm off to check your blog! Hopefully you are still posting, and how wonderful that you are doing the 30 in 30 with us! Yay!

Sandra, I am so enjoying seeing your gorgeous work. Thanks for the memories...:)
