30 Days 30 Paintings The Round Up

Well it’s February and the 30 Days 30 Paintings Challenge has ended. I had hoped to finish up with 3 additional paintings but I had to leave them in progress last night when they weren’t pulling together the way I had wanted. Nevertheless, I still had a fabulous month full of lots of new paintings.

I completed 26 paintings this month with 3 more on the easel right now. Not a bad month at all.

I started this challenge feeling pretty optimistic. This was in spite of the fact that I was horribly sick and probably should have waited. But paintings wait for no bug. Right? RIGHT? Ha.

This month pulled out a few new approaches to portraits for me. The blue and white ones really worked well and my series of dwarves? Definitely something I can wrap my brushes around again. I love the warmth of the colours and the intensity of their personalities.

So what’s next? I’ve got Toronto ComicCon to prep for. I’ve got a couple of painting commissions to get done. And between all that? I’m PAINTING! 

Got a request? Want prints? You’ve come to the right place. Hop on over to my store to see what’s available or fill in this handy dandy form and the resident dalek will probably not exterminate your data before I read it.

Hate SPAM? Me too!

Actually I love it. How many times can my unknown uncle die? ALL THE TIMES! Plus, I’ve been recruited by the Illuminati (Shhhhh! It’s a secret). Spam is the most entertaining thing around. And I’m going to get rich as soon as the Spanish lottery sends me my money.

But I get it if you don’t want the spam. No one else should get rich, be thin, have better male parts than me. NO ONE. So I promise not to share your email address with anyone but me. And don’t worry, I won’t remember it anyway.
