Day 30 and Lived to Tell the Tale

Happy Paint Party Friday!  And holy cow, we made it! Day 30 of 30 Paintings in 30 days!

Leana, Lady of Cats
8″ x 10″ acrylics and ink on canvas board

Though I did not get enough sleep (and got off to a slow start), the challenge has been fantastic! And though I did several smaller works for a total of 30 in 30 days, these 19 acrylic paintings really represent what I hoped to accomplish this month. (And this little gallery is much more than I expected from one month!)

The First Eleven, January 2014
Various sizes, acrylic, ink, gel pen

The Final Eight, January 2014
Various sizes, acrylics, ink, gel pen

I suppose some of these might go in my shop (sadly neglected these past 30 days)! Some need some finishing, though. Lots of progress pics for each over the last 30 days of posts. (I think I skipped 2 days, possibly 3.)

Many thanks to Leslie Saeta for hosting!

And next, it’s off to 29 Faces, where I hope to continue painting. But with slightly more sleep. Congratulations to all and thank you to everyone for the encouraging notes!

And one more thing! I have linked to 50 Canvases in 2014, over at wonderstrange!

    Cindy, I find this so funny that you painted this! Yesterday, I almost painted a flamingo with a tiny bird sitting on it’s head. I had the title (Mutt and Jeff) all ready, but I couldn’t figure out which bird would go with a flamingo. I even did research on it. And then, finally ended up just doing a single flamingo. Anyway, as always, I LOVE your painting! Again, I’d love it if you wrote a story with these characters. Are you doing that? Keep up the great work!

    Congrats on making it thru such a challenge!! This one is Gorgeous……the headdress, the eyes, the colors. One of my favorites…..the composite images are fantastic too. They really look nice all together in a collage…….if only I can be so prolific………sigh…..

      Clara! Your canvases are so much larger than this! Most of these are just 5″ x 7″. :P
