Happy September! Around this time last year I was finishing up my 30x30 Project in my old South Boston studio… I challenged myself to create 30 small, intricately layered paintings in 30 days. Here are all 30 lined up to be titled and signed before getting matted.
Day 11, above, was created towards the end of August when the days were still hot but the nights began getting cooler and longer and I wrote this poem about the wistfulness and wilds of a summer's end… it seems perfectly fitting to share today after a weekend that gave me both a slight sunburn and a campfire scented sweater.
This project was demanding and challenging in a good way and helped me work on budgeting time and deadlines (a sorely needed skill in my life and business) and ended up looking pretty cool all together. All but three of the original paintings have sold and I've made a select few available as paper prints. I'm getting the urge to start another big personal project but am not sure exactly what to do… a little book/published sketchbook? Maybe some sort of wearable art? Suggestions are welcome!
