DAY 30: Salvo

We made it to Day 30 of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge!  What a roller coaster it has been. Today’s painting is “Salvo” (watercolour, 5″x5″).  Last night’s show was fun, and I’m the speaker for a conference on getting into juried shows in an hour at Scarlet Seven Gallery.  And, then I will get on the road headed for home with another stop over in Pennsylvania.  Plus, it is the final day of the challenge.  I needed the work.  I needed the process.  I needed the rollercoaster.  Maybe I didn’t need to share it all so explicitly, but I did.  So there.  I feel like I have fired a canon into the world and wait with baited breath to feel the impact. An aggressive act of happy expectation.  I am guilty of that –choosing happiness.  It gets me in trouble.  So here I am.  Here it is.  Trouble.

As a xerographist, my work tends to be, almost exclusively, representational.  The 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge offered me an opportunity to revisit abstract painting as an alternate voice. 

Until next time…
