#21 of the 30/30
September 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge
Today's the last day (phew!) of Leslie Saeta's 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge. Last January, I was able to complete 30 paintings, but not this time. (That is unless I crank out nine more before midnight...) Do I feel bad because I only completed 21? Heck NO!
The month was filled with unexpected interruptions (stress) that made it impossible to paint on some days. Life happens. The 30/30 challenge was another bit of nagging stress always in the background. When I set goals and don't achieve them I feel guilty. This time, I'm forgiving myself and giving thanks for creating 21 paintings! Good practice and I actually like some of them.
October's a fresh new month with another set of goals that I'm setting for myself. Already painted 121 for the year!
