What I learned during Leslie Saeta's Jan. 30 in 30 Challenge :
1. Alcohol Ink Dreamscaping is fun, relaxing and great for beginning artists because it is so easy and supplies are so inexpensive. Okay I already knew that, but it was my lifesaver when falling behind this month :)
2. If you have the ink consistency just right in the sky, Snow Cap makes a perfectly round, awesome (larger than Metallic Mixative) moon that takes on the sky color tint.
3. Piñata Rich Gold can be diluted to slight sparkles to illuminate skies and water, thin lines for edging mountain ridges or larger shapes simulating lights from distant towns.
4. Creating imaginary faces from Andrew Loomis' formula was intriguing for me but not popular with June Rollins ART Facebook viewers. Mace, Spock, Antonio and Janine received the least amount of likes. And yes, of course I named them :)
5. Paint My Photo is an encouraging online community of photographers and artists. Photographers post non-copyrighted images they actually want artists to paint from.
6. Chantel Barber is an awesome acrylic artist and instructor offering monthly online portrait and figurative classes. Perfect for this working girl's busy schedule.
The Potter, (not in the above 30 in 30 Collage) was also painted this month during Chantel's January Atelier. Yes, I took on 30 in 30 Challenge and working in a new medium. It was a whirlwind month. Pricing Info for The Potter
7. Lilli is in the center of the collage for a reason. She is the heart of the month for me. I loved painting her and I loved even more the expression on her owner's face when she saw this painting of her.

Thanks for checking-in and wishing all a Fearless February of persistence and determination.
