30 Paintings in 30 days Final Week

Wow.  What can I say.  I really did stick with the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge.  Only I painted 28.  Really 27 as my last painting was finished today - after the end of the challenge.  I am so glad I did this.  I wanted to use materials and subjects  I do not always get around to.  And I learned a lot. I learned that I actually do like acrylic paint.  I just do not like to use it on canvas as I am unable to get the degree of detail I want to achieve. And I LOVE Ampersand Claybord with acrylics!  I will blog about that next week!   And this is almost what is looks like - there a few missing because I struggled with the program. But you get the idea. And this weeks efforts are below. SHideler 30 paintings in 30 days
