- There is no such thing as an "ugly" color - beige is indeed beautiful!
- Less is best in many cases
- The little blue flowers seem to be popular
- "Vessels" are in
- I really enjoyed working in the primitive style. Simple shapes and limited colors made it easy for me to concentrate on composition and values.

The 100 Artwork/Painting challenge changed that for me and now I can't wait to do more neutral paintings on a larger scale. I'm adoring the simple shapes and the minimalist style, and this challenge has even inspired me to organize and clear out my closets, drawers, and other cluttered spaces in my home and studio!

But tomorrow I start preparing for another project - starting September 1st I will be participating in yet another "30 Paintings in 30 Days" challenge. This time my theme will be small abstract works on paper using neutral colors. I'm leaving the vessels behind and concentrating on dots, lines, texture and composition. Feels good to get back to my roots and I'm looking forward to embracing my new found friends again, neutral colors and a limited palette!
