30 Day Challenge by Leslie Saeta

Drawing board ready with 3x5 inch papers,
on my easel, ready for New Foundland images.
It is never a good time to do what you love. 


My sister Dafne and I had a brief discussion of this "good time." 

We have to MAKE THE TIME to do what we love. 

I love all the images still swimming through my head about New Foundland and my collection of ephemera (paper, stuff, labels, tickets, junk, other people's trash) collected while on our vacation.

I want to use all that stuff...or throw it away after not

What am I doing about what I love and good time? I am making a commitment (YIKES) to create 30 postcards from New Foundland.  I signed up for Leslie Saeta's Artists Helping Artists 30 Paintings in 30 Days September 2013 Challenge. 

Leslie writes up guidance of how to get ready for the 30 Day challenge. I made my own guidance, and here is my list:

2. Theme is New Foundland. But. If I get stuck, frustrated, leave town for a weekend, take a class, etc., am allowed to change the theme.
3. Size: 3x5 inches up to 5x7 inches. 
4. Work small, work fast, DO NOT NOODLE. 
5. Mixed media is allowed.
6. Working on a few backgrounds at a time is allowed.
7. Try to post to blog daily...even if just a silent photo of what happened in my studio or portable studio.

What do you love? How are you making a Good Time to do what you love? What are you going to do to challenge yourself for 30 days to do what you love?
