2013 is over in a few hours. And tomorrow begins a new challenge. Not just the challenge of a new year, but another “30 in 30 Challenge” initiated by Leslie Saeta. You can see more details on her blog, but in short it means, aiming to paint 30 painting in 30 days.

30 in 30 jan 2014

Last year I participated for the first time, and in September 2013 a second time. I always found it incredibly motivating to do it together with so many other artists. There are already more than 300 signed up. There is also the additional exposure by being able to post each day’s painting on Leslie’s blog and at the same time seeing what others have painted.

Last year I did mostly acrylic paintings with many having a spiritual topic. In September my theme was watercolor landscapes. This time I will do mostly pencil and ink drawings. Thereby I can kill two birds with one stone – the drawings are my homework for my art study at Leonardo Kunstakademie. The next course will be in February.

Last but not least, I wish all my readers many blessings for the new year 2014!!!
