My 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge... How Did I do?

At the beginning of September I pledged to paint as much as I could during the next 30 days.
I joined the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge, and aimed to complete as many paintings as my super busy schedule would permit.

I fell behind almost immediately, but I knew it was going to happen.
Too many art shows, events, kids activities, back to school nights, and lots of stuff starting up again after the summer break.

I said I was aiming for 30 paintings, but in the back of my mind I thought I would be happy if I managed to paint 15.

And how did it go?

Well, not too shabby! I was able to paint 17 panels, of different sizes. they are all oil paintings, including two value studies that are divided into fourths (but counting then as four pieces would be cheating).

The 17 oil paintings that I completed during the month of September 2016

Now I look back and the month has gone in a blur!

With all that I had going on, without the incentive of the challenge I would have had postponed or canceled a lot of the painting sessions, instead I tried to paint as often as I could. I'm so glad that I did!
This is me on September 22nd while painting at Pickerington ponds Metro Park.


Thanks for stopping by!
