30 IN 30 ... ONCE AGAIN




ANOTHER 30 IN 30 CHALLENGE WAS HELD AGAIN IN SEPTEMBER . . .



I DECIDED AT THE LAST MINUTE TO PARTICIPATE AND ACTUALLY GOT ABOUT 25 PAINTINGS DONE.  ALL SMALL, 4 x 4" to 6 x 6".  ALL OF THESE, EXCEPT ONE, ARE ORIGINAL ACRYLIC POURS WITH AN ACRYLIC  PAINTING ADDED.  YOU CAN PROBABLY TELL WHICH ONE (bottom row, center left) IS NOT A POUR.  THE CHALLENGE TO MYSELF WAS TO SEE HOW I COULD USE A  POUR AS THE BACKGROUND FOR ANOTHER PAINTING.  STARTING AT THE TOP AND GOING CLOCKWISE ARE THE TITLES OF THE PAINTINGS.  IF YOU WOULD LIKE MORE INFORMATION ON ANY OF THESE PIECES JUST CLICK ON THE TITLE:

1.    CONTEMPLATING

2.    THE GARDEN GNOME  (that's an actual name of a poppy!)

3.    AND THE SEA TAUNTED THE BEAR TO COME OUT AND PLAY
                                  (this is the original pour without any additional painting. 
                                                               How could it not be this title?!!  :)



6.    DRESSED FOR THE WEATHER


8.    FIORI ROSSI



11.   PERSEVERANCE (center)





"AS YOU CAN SEE, I HAVE ENOUGH OF MY OWN
PROBLEMS AT THE MOMENT ..."

This one is actually 2 pours.  A 5 x 5" pour with another 4 x 4" pour adhered to the top, and then the chicken painted on that.  




'IT'S A DOUZY!'
This one will be a challenge, as will be a few others that are waiting in the background.

This was taken recently by my granddaughter Kaitlyn.  The first thing I thought of when I saw this photo was 'the light at the end of the tunnel'.  With that I will share this quote with you . . .


"The light is not at the end of the tunnel.  The light is wherever you are.  If you keep thinking your resolve lies in the future then it will always be just out of reach."
