I've been obsessed lately with the energy, the force, and the intense beauty of the animal kingdom. In our profound connection to the animal world lies our capacity to find both great love and immense danger.
It's be fun joining Leslie Saeta's 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge. My goal for the challenge wasn't to paint one painting start to finish in a day. I usually have 10 to 20 paintings in various stages of development in the studio. Some take days, some weeks, some months to resolve. I layer on paint, scrape out, start over, and sometimes just watch them for a while before completing. My goal for the challenge was to finish one per day, and that one may have been "cooking" for quite a while. Thanks to Leslie for hosting the challenge, and generously letting artists continue to post to her blog site. She also hosts a weekly radio show called "Artists Helping Artists." Well worth the visit.
