I tried taking a class in college which ended badly because I didn't mesh with the teacher's requirement of painting flowers each and every single lesson. I tried once again after noticing an artist using them on top of their acrylics (what??!!) and managed to ruin every single painting because of my severe lack of patience.
So when trying to decide what to do for the upcoming art event, I decided to REALLY challenge myself and work with Larry's oil paints. What better way to get over the love/hate relationship than to stare at it day after day for a month?
So here are a couple of studies I painted in preparation for the upcoming challenge which begins January 1, 2015. I'm planning to do a mix of non-objective abstracts (to work with color and composition) and abstract landscapes using Larry's top quality paints and brushes.
Creative Soul Revival and The Beachy Boutique. The beach scenes will be in the latter store while abstracts and non-beach related landscapes will be for sale in Creative Soul Revival.
This will be my 4th "30 Paintings in 30 Days" challenge and I'm looking forward to kicking off the New year with it. There is something exciting about creating something each and every day for 30 days, and I want to get a cohesive line of work to show on my new website that is being worked on that will be strictly for my art.
Here's to making friends with my old enemy - may we overcome our issues and become the true friends I had hoped we would be when I first met you on my 10th birthday. And may I channel a lot of Larry's talent and patience in the process!
