30 in 30 Challenge Complete!

I am so glad I did the 30 in 30 Challenge again!  Not only did I have a lot of fun painting (most...ha!) of these paintings, but I grew in some skills and met some fun people along the way.  Thank you to everyone who stopped by to check out my art.  Your encouragement meant a lot!  

One thing I learned more about was making better compositions in my paintings.  I received some feedback (that I sought out) and the artist suggested that I work on that area.  I really appreciated the help!  I still have a lot to learn about it, but I am being more thoughtful about it now.  I also learned that I do better when I make a careful drawing in the beginning.  Sometimes I get to impatient and ignore a poor drawing.  That always leads to frustration.  

Since the 30 day challenge, I have painted a couple of commissions.  I'll post those tomorrow.  What's next?  Well my husband and I are actually going on a vacation to Florida!  So I won't be painting for the next week or so.  I'm sure it will take me a few days to get back into the swing of things once I return.  I think I might explore some more florals next...or maybe I'll get some new inspiration during our travels!
