So we're in those funny few days between Christmas and new year and my brain is hurtling ahead to planning (or trying to plan) my 2017. Regardless of what's happening in the rest of the year, January and September are my 30 paintings in 30 days months - and January is fast approaching!
30 Paintings in 30 Days is a free global initiative that simply encourages artists and creative people to create more. The challenge is co-ordinated by US-based artist Leslie Saeta (who also publishes the fabulous Artists Helping Artists podcast each week) and everything is explained on the 30 in 30 homepage. You don't have to create thirty completed works in that time, for some even one is a major hurdle acheived. It just brings people together who simply want to create. It's lovely to be telepathically working alongside fellow artists who one will usually not meet but are all over the world just uploading what they've produced onto a central website on the day they've produced it.
