"It is an important and popular fact that things are not always what they seem.  For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much; the wheel, New York, wars and so on; whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man; for precisely the same reasons."~ Douglas Adams
We are one third of the way through the 30in30 challenge and I"m starting to hit a wall. Things were going so smoothly, it was bound to happen. I wanted to introduce some line elements and geometric shapes into my organic looking abstract work, but things haven't worked out as planned. Representational elements are starting to sneak back in and I'm not sure if that's good or a bad thing. I'm starting to think, that if it happens, it happens, but I'm not consciously starting out a painting with any particular subject in mind. Does that sound reasonable to you, or am I just copping-out?
There are 3 "FOR THE LOVE OF TREES" Wall Calendars
and one Desk Calendar left and they are on sale!
Once they're gone, they're gone forever.

Thanks for all the feedback on my paintings. I am loving it.
I hope you are having a creative, happy day!
