Another 30/30 Painting Challenge for September 2015

Why did I decide to do another 30 paintings in 30 days challenge? I asked myself that same question each day of this month.

So ok, I want to be more accountable, push myself to the studio, paint and process, and maybe get some good work out of it. Can’t say for sure that will happen (the good work part) but maybe, just maybe the Muse will stay and Mr. Resistance will stay away.

Five works in 10 days is an ok showing. Working small in 20 minute segments and pushing the process, maybe I can double up and meet the quota this time around.

Fingers crossed Mr. Resistance keeps his distance.

  1. Dear Dora, all your work looks nice! I once did 30 days challenge like you. It was quite busy and demanding, but really a fun. I hope you will just enjoy it. It’s not seek for a reason. I’m sure a little child does not have a reason to do something. Me, neither to draw something. Simply because I love it, I do it ʚ(ˆ◡ˆ)ɞ.
    Best wishes, Sadami

    1. This time around the challenge was very difficult because I had many other things taking away my time. But I’m glad I was able to get some work done, and that means a lot!
