30in30 Painting Challenge

Happy new year to you & thank you for coming back to my blog in 2016 🙂 I’m going to start a new challenge in January, the 30in30 painting challenge – together with hundreds of other artists over at 30 Paintings in 30 Days – come and join us

My 100 day painting challenge didn’t get completed in the end because I’m currently sick for the third time in the last month. I don’t know what it is, but everytime I get healthy my bronchitis comes back a few days later.

I noticed that I love painting every day, but sometimes you just aren’t home or have to do other things. The 30in30 challenge means just that – you paint 30 paintings in 30 days, but you don’t have to stick to a schedule, you could also paint all of them in one day. So at the moment I’m trying to paint two paintings a day and if I get sick again I don’t have to feel bad about myself.

It is encouraged to pick a theme for the challenge so I try to stick with 20x20cm canvases and my theme is Floral Abstracts. I really like to paint those and I want to accomplish to mix my abstract painting style and coloring into my floral work to create a more unique style.

    Lovely!!! I try to keep ahead of the days so if something keeps me from painting one day I don’t fall behind. I’ll be watching for more of your work.

    • Thank you! Yes, painting ahead helps so much, takes away all the pressure of having a non-creative day 🙂

    I’m enjoying your work! Sounds like you need to see an allergist or get some rest.

    • Thank you! I’m actually sick for the first time in a long time, but somehow it came back three times. I’m quite well rested, maybe just a strange month. It’s getting a lot better now 🙂
