30 Day Painting Challenge - Week 7

I'm at the point where I have to keep reminding myself why I started this challenge in the first place. Whenever I paint I can't help but think about what types of paintings I would do for a gallery or a solo show.  Most artists paint with a certain type of style or subject matter but I just kinda paint.

#22 - The original was boring so I added the vines.  
I'm still working through my skills and ideas.  It's nice to look back in my journal and see what I've accomplished so far.  I have about six painting left and it feels good.  But then what?  I hope to start concentrating on finished pieces for sale/galleries.  Btw, I LOVED hearing about your goals in the last post!

#23 - I went around in circles for a while before this idea come along.

At times, I feel intimidated because I want my work to look a certain way.  For right now, I'm going to chill and be happy with my progress.  And of course, keep painting.

  4. I'm like you I just kind of paint what shows up without a real plan. Sometimes I plan it out but it often feels too contrived then! Well done very pretty work!
