Packing My Bags

Today is the final day of Leslie Saeta's January 2016 30-in-30 Challenge. What a grand thirty days—creative energy every which way you turn! New friends! New mentors! New art!

Every day!

Thank you for creating space for us all, Leslie.

I followed my nose in so many wonderful and varied directions. Below you'll see where I was mid-month; here I am just now posting what has been sitting in queue for two weeks.


Planning to visit Futh in Maine. Packing my bags for hittin' the road.

Used to be, my packing list didn't include a travel-sized studio.

In this trip's kit:

4 postcard set-ups, painting done at home
1 brush
wax pastels
watercolor pencils
masking tape.

traveling companions:
postcard set-ups

    1. Thanks, Joan! We've made it to day 30 in the challenge : )

      Love your frosty parting painting—frostiness effectively communicated!

  2. Good stuff ahead! Congrats to you Dotty, and thank you for following my blog and for your generous comments :) Happy creative trails to you!

    1. The good times keep rolling, don't they? Congrats to you, too, and thanks for following my blog and for your welcome ongoing support. I was just telling a friend this afternoon how helpful it was, whether one word or a few sentences, to know you were out there cheering me on. There were days when that support was especially welcome and kept me going when I felt frustrated or discouraged.

      Onward we go!

  3. Safe travels Dotty & I shall be checking back again soon to see what mischief you've got into! Gillian xxx

    1. Thanks, Gillian. Always mischief on the horizon!

  4. Congratulations, Dotty! I'll be keeping an eye open for your awesome creations throughout the year. Have a safe trip!

    1. Thanks, Laurie, and congrats to you, too! I'll be drinking in your awesome art as well : )

  5. Oh no! I didn't realize this daily art work was coming to an end. As others have said, I'll keep my eyes open for new creations now and then. Keep those creative juices flowing!

    1. Do not be misled! What is ending is the 30-in-30 January 2016 Challenge sponsored by Leslie Saeta. My painting will continue to take place daily!

  6. This is a brilliant blog! I'm very happy with the comments!..
