Day 1 of "30 Paintings in 30 Days"

"Dancing in a Crowd"
Mixed media painting
14" x 11" on unstretched canvas

I'm so excited to be participating again in Leslie Saeta's "30 Paintings in 30 Days" challenge!!  I surprised myself by completing the challenge in January of this year, and had so much fun that I decided to do it again.  Please follow my new work on my blog or "like" my Facebook Page if you'd like to know more. 

The Transformational Process for "Cloud Bubbles"

At last, the painting is done!!!  Introducing "Cloud Bubbles," -- the newly completed 30" x 30" acrylic on canvas painting.
Here are the various stages  of transformation my painting endured following the last post.....and to think I originally wanted to end up with a neutral work! The ocean scene happened before I left for my vacation at Stinson Beach, but I just wasn't feeling it when I returned.  I needed to paint my feelings, and swirled lots of happy paint around the canvas before ending up with the final piece.
