Challenge Complete!!

On June 13th I started my very first painting challenge, where I set out to paint 1 painting everyday for 30 days. Now it's 32 days later and today I finished my last 3 paintings (yes, I said!! So many things have happened in the last 32 days in my home, our State, our Country & around the world. I have to say, even with so much grief and brokenness, having art to turn to and put in the work was really healing! To be honest I have never looked at art-making as particularly healing for me. I have been asked about that many times, if I felt my art was a healing process for me... and I always answered in the negative.. I think that's because, when tough things have come up, I have usually put my art aside to deal with what ever I needed to deal with. Knowing I was committed to a deadline with challenge caused me to do the work even though I was struggling emotionally. Enter my epiphany! Yes! Creating IS healing!

So here are the 3 pieces I did this morning!

Rainbow Kraken ~ #28

Vacation ~#29

Lounging ~ #30

There is so much to say about each piece I will write a separate blog post for each one and post them in the next few days. Which piece of the 3 is your favorite? I'm not sure which one is mine. Comment below, I would love to read your feedback!

Thank you so much for following along! If you love getting these little insights into OVashti Art, I would be honored if you would share with your friends!

Creatively yours,
