Day 7 - Shoreline Lights

Untitled, Acrylic on Crescent Board, 10"x10", NFS

Day 7 - Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days

I have to admit that this one didn't do what I wanted it to. I think the problem was that I had two different ideas going in and, in the end, neither one won out. I wanted to further abstract the painting I did yesterday, but I also wanted to play with the idea of a small city with lights that extended up the hill over the lake (Burlington does this on the shore of Lake Champlain). In any event, I call if quits on this painting for now - tomorrow is another day (that's what I like about the 30 Day Challenge - rather than mess with this for another few days, I can justify just moving on to a new painting. It's very freeing and it allows me to learn more than I would if I kept messing with the one painting until it was perfect or irretrievably ruined.)
