I'M COMMITTED TO THE CHALLENGE
This is the tenth Thirty Painting in Thirty Days Challenge Leslie will host. In February of 2018 over 800 artists participated in the challenge. Her next challenge starts on September 1, 2018! The goal is to paint 30 paintings in 30 days. Leslie said have fun and the goal is to complete 30 new paintings during the month. But please remember it's ok to miss a few. Nobody will know but you. In fact nobody will care but you! Life gets in the way sometimes and if that happens, don't sweat it. The only "rule" is to have fun! That's it!
So why should you join this challenge? The challenge is not about finishing 30 gallery quality "perfect" paintings. It's about getting in to the studio to try new things. It's about painting more often. It's about having fun and developing new habits! This challenge has changed the lives of many artists and she hoped you will experience the same! It's important to remember you are not doing this challenge alone. If it's anything like last February there were 800 artists (in 38 countries) commit to painting every day.. Who knows how many there will have this time? So let's share and support each other.

LET'S DO THIS TOGETHER
WHY? DO YOU WANT MORE REASONS? Well, the kids and grandkids are back in school, so I'm hoping you have a little more time. The year is winding down before the holidays, and at the end of September, you will have a significant accomplishment under your belt. This gives you the opportunity to paint every day and isn't this what we all want? I want us to have fun–don't stress-out. Speaking of the holidays, you may have a few gifts or greeting cards finished ahead of schedule. Personally, after seeing the John Singer Sargent & Chicago's Gilded Age at the Art Institute in Chicago, I want to try a few of his watercolor techniques like wax resist.
Here's what I want you to do:
