30 Day Challenge

I started the 30 Day Painting Challenge on-the-road, and had to paint in a hotel room!  
I used watercolor for the "first time" so I wouldn't have to bring my oils with me.   
I thought Abstracts would be easy and fun?   Easy, NO!   Fun?   When they worked, they were fun, but I painted many abstracts that didn't get posted!

I learned that Abstract or Representational Art needs a good design to work.   
Color will help, but will only take you so far, 
than it is the job of the focal point to hold the painting together.

I want to Thank Leslie Saeta for hosting this challenge once again, 
and Thank You for looking!


  1. Congratulations Jack! At least you did it!

    1. JanettMarie,
      Well yes, if you use "The New Math"!
      I was on a roll and enjoying "The Challenge" until a family situation diverted my attention.
      Thank You for your very kind comment!

  2. Loved all of your work. The collage is so well put together. It is a beautiful and diverse body of work.

  3. Sharon,
    I didn't set out to have a diverse body of work this month! I "thought" it would all be abstract. I chose abstract as a challenge, because I have never done abstract before and thought I would learn in the process! What I learned was "ALL" types of art depend on design to be successful. And maybe I should leave abstract up to those that do it so well!
    Thank you for your wonderful comment!
