|Splash of Color, Acrylic on Gessoboard, 6"x6", $125 (framed)|
One aspect of summer's end that I am looking forward to is the September 2016 Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days Challenge. It starts on September 1. This will be my sixth time doing the Challenge which occurs each year in January and September. It is sponsored by Leslie Saeta. I haven't figured out what my theme will be yet - I have a couple more weeks to decide. I believe having a theme in mind makes it easier to complete the challenge, so I will definitely spend some time on this.
Notes on this painting: This painting was painted using a palette knife and squeegee. I am slowly learning to let the paint direct the painting to some extent. That means I apply acrylic paint and move it around with the squeegee and knife. Then I decide what needs to be done to make sense of the shapes and colors that result.
