Day 29, 30

This is the last post from the challenge, 30 Paintings in 30 Days. I'm happy that I was able  to finish it but I couldn't complete 29 Faces-:( I think I should have been more practical while choosing to do two challenges at a time. Anyways I am not going to stop painting but have decided to continue creating in my Fall Journal for this entire season. 

I'm linking this last September post at Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday  In my cup I have my usual Folger's coffee.

 Another one of those beautiful autumn treasures that I found on my way back from my son's school. I do all my water colors with my Koi set. Now it is almost finished and am researching on a new brand. I am very happy with Koi but I just wanted to explore more on water colors... Do you have any suggestions?
Camellia
This is Day-29 painting. I did these flowers on top of gesso and that is why there is a different feel to it.  Keeping a journal for a specific season has its own benefits. I'm now learning so many things about Fall. For instance I did not know anything about this flower or that even Hibiscus was a Fall flower. I hope to do a sketch of it too on this journal.

Thank you all who came my way and  took the time to motivate me.
This had been a wonderful journey and I hope to continue with it. But of course I will be posting my creations only twice or thrice a week here. That way I can relax and also find time to visit everyone in blog land.
Have a wonderful week

Day-23

Morning dear Elizabeth and all other friends at T stands for Tuesday I am so sorry that I have not been able to visit you all. I am loving these challenges but am never finding enough time to visit  everyone. 
Anyways today I want to share my second page from my Fall Journal. I had written about the 'No-Sew' Journal that I made in my last post.    
 My cup has my usual morning coffee. 

 Above is a Fall line by one of my favorite poets Emily Dickinson, " Every leaf speaks Bliss to me, fluttering from the Autumn."  

This is a mixed media piece that I did on Strathmore 140lb sheet. The background has been done using Dylusion Sprays and the Yoga silhouette in deli paper. I stencilled the word "BELIEVE" on the page and now I've no idea why it is not straight! I guess it is how I took the picture-:) In real everything is aligned the right way.

I'm linking my post to  30 Paintings in 30 Days and 29 Faces.
And now I am going to visit as many of you as I can.
Have a wonderful week everyone
