Leslie Saeta’s 30 Paintings In 30 days Painting Challenge
I am very excited to announce that I have taken up the challenge and joined Leslie Saeta’s 30 Painting In 30 Days Challenge.
The idea behind the challenge is to do one painting each day for 30 days. Then each day all of the artists taking part will share the painting on Leslie’s blog ‘Slices of Life’.
In 2013 Leslie ran the challenge twice … January and September and the feedback from the artists participating was very inspiring. Having watched it happen twice this year I decided to kick of 2014 by jumping in and taking part in the challenge.
By painting every day for 30 days there is no doubt that my painting skills will improve. I am planning on painting small and developing a theme … possibly along the lines of ‘Idealic Country Life’ … Australian landscape paintings that feature farms, cottages, etc. I will have to give this some more thought prior to January 1st.
The other reason I am planning on joining in is to connect with more artists around the globe via the challenge.
So how is Leslie Saeta?
I have been following Leslie now for about 2 years. She is a palette knife painter who paints a lot of boats and seascapes. But she is more than just a painter. She is the host of the very popular ‘Artists Helping Artists’ blogtalk radio program. If you are an artist with ambitions of earning a living from the sales of your paintings then you have to listen to the weekly podcast show.
I am looking forward to the challenge … if you are an artist why not join us over at Leslie’s Slices of Life Blog – Click Here For Details
I will be creating a blog post here for each of the paintings that I do each day of the challenge. They will all be available for sale from the blog post.
NOTE: If you want to follow my progress during the challenge then subscribe to the blog on the right hand side where it says ‘Get Blog Updates’. Also I will be giving away one of the paintings in a prize draw so make sure you subscribe to the section that says ‘Win A Painting’
Lastly … I would love to get your feedback, comments, thoughts etc on the paintings that I do each day so feel free to leave your comments, and share the blog posts.
