Day 19. Well, I have been at this 30 day art challenge now for 19 days and I have to say, a part of me is looking forward to day 30 and the other part of me is enjoying the focused art time each day. Today I broke out the soft chalk pastels and had a blast smudging, smearing and blurring lines. It was so fun to mix colors with my fingers on the paper and witness the effects. I could have kept going, but needed to get this posted. There is something to this blurring the lines and mixing things up. I like this concept! What do you think?
On this 18th day to the 30 day art challenge I am worried about my garden of Dahlias! There is a freeze warning for tonight and a frost will kill all my flowers. So sad to see them go, so I painted a bunch of them to preserve them.
Our family dining room had the most horrible wallpaper ever invented. I disliked it the minute my mom labored over putting it up. It was so ugly! It hung on those walls for 40 years, I am sure. It did get replaced by lovely yellow walls with white trim and lacy curtains around 2001. It was a much more inviting place to entertain and eat.
Anyway, today’s art, although not a replica of that horrid paper has the essence of that paper! What in the world was I thinking?! I offer it up and free the past. Look! It has the outline of a dead shape/body too! OMG.
On this day I was thinking about how everyone and everything is connected.

Let’s just call this one Oppression. Dark and Uncomfortable. I was, and have been listening to the news.
Day 13: Focusing on living in the present. I am amazed at what I take in in this very moment. Check out the “roots” in this picture! Not sure they come through… Maybe the title should be ROOTED IN THE NOW… I like it!
Day 12 finds me a bit under the weather. Feeling the remnants of hurricane Michael? But also a cold. The last of any idea of Indian Summer is gone and we are heading into the cold season. It looks like there are legs in this wave being tossed about as well. Buckle up! Take a deep breath. Plunge in.
Today, I did not have any intention. I just doodled. It was relaxing and pleasant. My picture looks like the back of heads of hair. Trying not to judge! If I had added little eyeballs to them they might have looked like the Pac Man guys!
