I Just Want To Show Up

This will be the third year I’ve taken on Leslie Saeta’s January 30 in 30 Challenge.

2014 25 in 30

Jan. 2014 I had fun creating 25 paintings (shown above) with different mediums and subjects. Some of the paintings took longer than one day to complete.

2013 Jan 30 in 30

Jan. 2013 I created 30 Dreamscapes (shown above) using Piñata Alcohol Inks on Ceramic Tile.


In preparation for the Jan. 2015 30 in 30, I’ve been cleaning the studio and considering the importance of just showing up.

In the words of Chuck Close:

Inspiration is for amateurs – the rest of us just show up and get to work.

Valuable insights from Chuck Close: Creativity.

This Jan. I want to take on the challenge to just show-up at my painting table every morning.

How about you?
