30 paintings in 30 days, I chose to do abstracts. uh like uh why?
What did I learn?
1. I am a realist through and through. And although I may have some different ideas, my work will always, in some fashion be based, on representational subjects
2. Leave those amazing non-representational works of art to the fantastic artists who do them so well, which is not me.
3. I like big projects (not necessarily big canvases) where in each one offers me a personal challenge or area of artistic growth.
Is it a personal failure if I do not complete my 30 paintings or has the objective of this challenge been met? I am drawn to the studio but not in obligation to paint small quick studies. I know where I want to go, I think I know how to get there but I know this 30 in 30 challenge is not the main road but a meandering country road which will surely get me lost.
Enough of the silly stuff I say! Get real!. Get active! GET SERIOUS!
