Dernier jour de janvier, dernier jour du défi !


Je suis fière d'avoir participé pendant le mois de janvier au défi 30 peintures en 30 jours de Leslie Saeta.
J'ai commencé quelques jours en retard mais j'ai été assidue dès le début! Et j'ai maintenant 28 peintures de plus!

Tout d'abord, il a fallu que je crée un blogue. Comme je ne savais trop comment procéder, j'ai fonctionné par essais et erreurs pour finalement obtenir une présentation simple qui me plaisait et qui serait agréable à mes lecteurs potentiels.

Merci à vous tous qui m'avez encouragée pendant ce mois de création.

Voici mon bilan de ce mois intensif de création :
  • Discipline et constance
  • Humilité : acceptation des hauts et des bas
  • Une constatation: plus on crée, plus les idées viennent et la technique s’améliore graduellement. Le Voir aussi ...
  • Importance d'être bien organisée (avoir le matériel nécessaire, un atelier adéquat, les sujets déjà choisis)
  • Apprentissage et pratique de techniques variées
  • Découverte de ce qui me plait davantage : techniques et sujets
  • Nécessité de planifier ce que je ferai de mes peintures: les donner, les vendre, les ranger ? 
 Le blogue de Leslie, mon propre blogue , les artistes rencontrés m'ont permis d’agrandir mon cercle de contacts. Le contact avec les autres artistes participant au défi a été très stimulant grâce aux suivis, échanges, conseils. 

Peindre de façon aussi intensive et exposer ses œuvres sur un blogue est un bon moyen d’étudier la réaction des gens face aux sujets et techniques utilisées en vue de ventes éventuelles.

J'ai déjà hâte au prochain défi ! 

Maintenant, il ne me reste plus qu'à ranger toutes ces toiles ....

  4. HI Martine - I don't speak french, but I cleverly translated in Google Translate! Ah-ha!
    Thank you for your lovely comments on my blog.
    Your paintings are lovely and I'm tremendously impressed that you put together the blog THIS MONTH and jumped right in! 28 paintings is absolutely tremendous! During last September's challenge I was only able to get 25 done.
    You will find a place to store the paintings - and you can always sell - I sell on Etsy & I know others have success on Ebay. BUT with 28 paintings, you can nearly have a private show too! Leslie had some terrific suggestions for that in her blog (look at May of 2013). There was also at least one episode of Artists Helping Artists that pertained to marketing and what to do with all those paintings!
    Best of luck to you and Keep Up the Great Work!
