Half Way Through 30 day Challenge

It has been a very busy week painting for this 30 day challenge. I am now half way through! Those of you who have been following along, I hope you have enjoyed so far. This week I did one more encouragement with gears. Changing it up next was this bird you see below.  Both I worked on larger canvas'. Something that is not easy for me but I enjoyed more room to move the paint around and layer.  There is always that point in a piece when I have all these bold colors going and it needs to be 'pushed back'. To be made subtle and allow the focal point to pop. On all of these pieces I had to cover most with a layer in this process and reveal the layers after. I am very pleased with the results. I showed collectors in my enews the before picture with bold orange and yellow in the beginning but the final piece it shines through amongst the layers. I have to say each time I do it it scares me. That maybe the color and texture layers will disappear and the result will be flat.
Pleasantly working it carefully I get the result I want. 

Small delights for you too that well, were actually smaller than usual. Hum, but they were so stinkin' Gleeful,Delightful and Joyful  and fun to do!
