Well, I'm officially way behind on my one-piece-of-art a day challenge. I'm determined to catch up, though, and have been making art as fast as I can. That said, I don't want to post anything I'm not happy with. (Well, please understand, I mean "happy with" relative to my skill and experience level! :) Also, these works are not meant to be masterpieces, so I have to let go of my perfectionist tendencies a little bit... "Loosen up" as Gary Reef would say!! This challenge is certainly pushing me to learn and try all kinds of various techniques, which has been so much fun.
Anyway, here are a few of my latest attempts. Please let me know what you think....am I making any progress? I'd love your feedback :)
The Summer Day (Mixed Media on Canvas Board 10 x 15")
(Loving all the eggshells in the center...thanks to Gary for this fantastic and fun technique, it's my first time to use it.)
Stella d'Oro (Golden Dreams) Mixed Media on Watercolor paper. 8 x 10".
Believe...with your soul. (Mixed Media / Collage on paper. 9 x 12")
Remember Your Original Dream (Mixed Media on paper. 8 x 8")
Allow Your Boundaries to Dissolve (Mixed Media on Paper 8 x 8".)
So, there you have it! Will the challenge get the best of me?! Stay tuned!
Here's a hint. I'm a Taurus. Nothing gets the best of me. If I can't manage with the consummate grace and composure... I will soldier on....if nothing else... I will just "muddle through" -- as they say across the pond. LOL.
