If you are following the 30 Paintings in 30 Days madness going on all over the artist world, you know we are right in the middle of the project (it's day 15). I decided at the very start that I would take the weekends and Labor day off, so I'm on painting 10. Which is still pretty cool! I'm enjoying all these florals, especially the ones on Yupo. The difficult ones, the ones that challenge me to change direction and take chances. The risky ones that bring me the most return.
In other news, my birthday is tomorrow (September 16). I am turning the very old and wise age of 34 :D . So, last weekend, in honor of this, and because I've been wanting to since spring, husband took me to San Francisco to see the J.M.W. Turner show at the De Young. It was good. Luminous and atmospheric. And sketching and sticking your nose too close to the painting was forbidden, and photographing was not.
