30 Paintings in 30 Days: Day 6

"Trying to Blend In" (11" x 11" mixed media)  $125
Six days into this challenge and I'm feeling really wiped out!  I keep trying to trick my mind by saying that I'm almost 1/3 of the way there, much like when I was learning to jog many years ago.  I wouldn't think that I could go another step, and then I'd say to myself, "Just make it to that next mailbox" and then when I made it, I'd make another bargain with myself.  Isn't that what life is?  Many little goals or bargains, that when you add them all up, they make a great big wonderful accomplishment!  This painting started out as a collage, where I randomly put pieces of collage papers, that were related in color.  Then I painted in a rich chocolate color around the collage papers.  When adding the drawing of the crow, I purposely overlapped it over part of the collage also, so it would seem invisible or ghost-like. 


  1. I'm so enjoying this new bird series and love the great designs you create. I also really enjoy reading about your process, struggles and all. Thank you for sharing!!

  2. Thanks, Connie! You don't know what all the cheering does for me!

  3. I'm enjoying your bird series as well! I know what you mean about keeping going! I am already saying nearly one week gone, I can do this! I think I can, I think I can....
