Save The Bees and 30in30 Collage

Save the Bees - 4x4x2" Acrylic on Gallery Canvas


I told you yesterday it would be simple. But I like how it turned out. Even though it's so little and it's kind of a speed painting, it's among my favorites for January. And really, we do need to put efforts into saving the bees. Saving the bees is saving us!

And, like everyone else doing the 30 in 30 January Challenge, I've made a collage for my project.


I'm happy I accomplished my goal of completing a painting every single day in January. I'm also a little sad it's over. It will be nice, though, to stop and take a breath. Oh wait....I have to finish scanning, sealing, putting wire hangers on, pricing, and taking them to the gallery to hang. Yikes! I wish being an artist was only about painting. How nice that would be! Haha!

Thanks for all of the encouragement and sweet comments during this project everyone! You guys kept me going on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and in the comments of this blog.

Happy weekend,
Ri

30 Paintings in 30 Days - Day 22 - Folk Art Rose

...and one more.

It's a folk art rose. Not much else to say today. I like the painting. I had fun painting it. I have a lot to do this week and I've still got a lot on my mind. But I'm proud that I've gone 22 days in a row doing a painting from start to finish. I don't know if I will continue to complete a painting every single day after this project, but I will continue painting daily. Completing one every day puts a lot of pressure on a person. At first I thought they had to be perfect. Now I'm leaning more toward having fun and completing the task. I can do big impressive works after the project. This has gotten me into a daily schedule, though. I needed that.

30 Paintings in 30 Days - Day 21 - Minimalist Gardener

I'm very much enjoying the whimsy paintings. I enjoy doing them and I like the end result. I'm also loving more white space. My mind has been cluttered lately. There's no reason my paintings should be. The white space has a calming effect on me. I've been trying to simplify my home and life, as well. Sometimes you just need room to breath, am I right? This is one of those times for me.

Wishing you minimal mind clutter,
