I decided to frame and hang two 5×7 paintings I did of white flowers from the 30 in 30 challenges. After I hung them, I decided there needed to be four so I painted a poppy and a daisy and got two more frames. Pretty happy with how well they look together.

My theme this time is Mountains

Red Peonies – 11×14

I can’t decide if the dark background was the best choice. Soon, I think I’ll make two small similar paintings and do a dark background on one, and a light background on the other. And take a pic of one with just the white background. See which seems like the best way to go.


Orange daylily 8×10

I was organizing my painting space after the challenge (because I’m a messy worker bee)IMG_8817 and found this abandoned painting of a lily. No idea what caused me to discard it – it looked like it had possibilities. So I finished the flower and thought, what the heck, let’s play with the background.

Last day – it was a 30 day challenge. I hope to spend the weekend catching up on the neglected housework and then I will/hope to keep painting everyday. It just won’t be as intense since I don’t have to finish something everyday. I think I’ll move up to a few larger pieces for a bit. AND I’ll have time to go back and really look at all of the other art in the challenge. You can see it here: http://lesliesaeta.blogspot.com/
