Day 15: Windows of the Gallery

"Windows of the Gallery" - 6" x 6", acrylic on canvas panel, NFS.

This is the halfway point of 30 Paintings in 30 Days, and I'm still chugging along. Hats off of the 1,400+ other artists around the world who are painting along with me this January! One of the benefits--and challenges--to working quickly is needing to be decisive about stopping. Some of these paintings definitely feel complete. But on others I stop working because I am done (rather than because the painting is done), meaning I have learned all that I needed to from that particular experiment and am ready to set it aside. Does that make sense?  Either way, it's good to practice putting my brush down.

Information about this project is here. If you're a new visitor, I also have a fine art website and a Facebook page.


  1. Wow! Nice work! But holy cowz I had the same thing happen with my painting today. I had great intentions of something totally different but I stopped......and didn't do any more. I was finished.

  2. So captivating to see your ongoing interpretations. So compelling to hear your discussion re stopping because you are done vs painting's being done. Thank you!
