This is the second one from yesterday. I did go out plein air painting this morning, but will have to wait till tomorrow to show you that one, since I don't want to put it on my scanner today (still may be slightly tacky).
I want to share some words of wisdom from Leslie Saeta, our leader in this challenge. I think her words are wise and wonderful:
"...I think it is important to reflect on what we have learned from this challenge so far. Painting for 30 days is not about creating 30 masterpieces to sell. It's literally impossible to paint your best when you undertake a challenge like this. Rather, it's about the process we have to go through to paint a painting every day....
When faced with a Challenge we are more focused and excited about reaching our goal. What you will learn this month will help you all year. You will have an easier time painting those masterpieces."
It's a relief to know I am not expected to create "masterpieces" every day. I think some of this work is among my best and most is....practice, brush mileage, showing up and doing the work. Not to mention, trying new things (palette knife!). In regards to this painting above, I can see things I could change. However, the fog is gone, the moment is past--on to the next!
Many thanks for all the love you are sending to my sister's dog Claire. I think it's working! Although she is still in the hospital fighting for her life, her bloodwork levels are starting to show some hope for her survival!
