Joining in 30 in 30 Challenge

 Hey Friends,   I decided to should join Leslie Saeta's challenge of 30 paintings in 30 days.  It would be good discipline for this easily distracted woman.  I'll not stress too much if I miss a day but I DO hope to get a painting or two ahead.  This is a collage and I've had a lot of fun doing this and plan to do more.
 It may seem weird but for me, collage is a lot more difficult, than just straight painting and a lot slower.   I believe a lot of people perceive it to be a lessor art form but if you've never tried it, don't judge to harshly.
I started with a glittery back ground scrap booking paper.  Once finished I didn't like all the glitter so I toned it down with a gesso & acrylic mixture.  Much better now.
So go check out Leslie's Blog and join the fun.
Happy Trails
Travel Well

Really nice, Susan. I love the texture--and the little bird. Thinly paintings in 30 days--wow.

Whoops--the iPad won again. That should be THIRTY paintings--not thinly paintings!

And the iPad decided your name was Susan--sorry, Sue.
