Starting again is a good thing, with lots of faith!

The 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge for January is on! Sponsored by Leslie Saeta
of the Blogtalk Radio show "Artists Helping Artists". This is a great opportunity to paint daily, connect with other artists on the web and get my web traffic up through linking pics of my daily paintings to Leslie's blog and....hopefully sell some paintings. Here goes........

A sad post, with hope....

My commitment to the painting challenge has changed a bit but I will hop on board as I can.

You see, the day that I signed on, my husband died unexpectedly and suddenly. I signed on totally oblivious to the reality of life....that my world could turn upside down in a second. Needless to say, the past two weeks have been a blur and very sad time.

I am going to continue with the September 30 Paintings in 30 Days as I am able, and to dedicate this to Mark, my biggest fan, and use painting in my healing. I feel good about that. It's one thing, as many know, that can take us out of our left brain, logical, sometimes tormenting side and bring us love, enjoyment and light. Edit: no, could not continue with the challenge. Grieving my spouse is a challenge that is indescribably and horrible and heartbreaking. It will never end, really, just possibly change over time for this man affected my life in immeasurable ways.

Mark Robbin, MD, a man who dedicated his life to giving to others, healing the sick, and to loving me. I love you so much.

My Mark, My Love

September 30 Paintings in 30 Days

It's official! I am making a promise to myself to paint 30 paintings in 30 days along with a group of wonderful painters. Our commander in chief, or I should say, mover and shaker extraordinaire is Leslie Saeta of Slices of Life by Leslie Saeta and the wonderful Artists Helping Artists Radio Show.

This is a great opportunity for me to get in there and paint, thus improve my painting skills drastically and produce an inventory of paintings that I desperately want and need.

I appreciate Leslie for providing this opportunity and in her tireless way provide the impetus for this. Yeah Leslie!

If anyone out there is reading this....hold me to task on this!
