Lost Count, 30 Paintings in 30 Days

"The Chill Ahead"    Acrylic, 6x6"
$75 plus shipping
Well, it seems Winter has begun here, so I couldn't  resist painting the chill...

Today I finished two paintings, progressed on one, and may have taken a third past the point of no return.  We'll see--I'll look at it again. 

Yesterday, I went to a meeting of the Appalachian Pastel Society and a design workshop with Leo Monahan.  At the workshop, we used collage as the format to practice our design sense.  Leo is an amazing artist, and cut and folded paper is his medium.  I am very tempted to learn his medium, but to do so, he requires students to take a series of design and then color workshops first.  

Needless to say, no painting yesterday.  But plenty of art!

How's everybody doing??  Me, I'm quite relaxed about the painting, don't care about the count, and am enjoying myself and learning as I go...

Love the blues and the icy cold feeling the lights create.

Ok now you got me, how close to Asheville are you? We come up several times a year, tried hard to move there but they don't build like we think. If I am not mistaken you meet in Mills River?
This pic does look cold, and it appears you made super progress on the others. We always watch the temps and my hubby is glad we didn't move as he now is getting old enough he hates the cold.
Hang in and persevere.

Love the colors and the subject matter, especially since I'm in Florida and don't have to deal with the snow we got.
