On April 3rd, 2018 I started The 100 Day Project. I chose watercolors as my medium, and 6x6 paintings. My theme is “100 things you’ll see in Summer.” To follow my progress, go to www.instagram.com/monicamartinfineart

About this time every year, the sun stays out longer each evening and I start drawing and painting flowers. It happens every year. I insist this will be the year I’ll skip my floral obsession, but I never get to March 1st without flowers on my easel. 2018 has proven to be a floral extravaganza, so I thought I’d share some of my latest additions. Most of the original artwork has been sold, but giclee reproductions, Prints, Pillows and totes can always be purchased through my shop on Fine Art America. www.fineartamerica/monicamartin

Hello friends,

I chose to participate in the Passion, Color, Joy 30 in 30 Challenge this year because color is such a big part of my world. I'm sure that I spend more time looking at color combinations than the average person. I can remember as a child being fascinated by art supplies, memorizing the names of colors and different shades. Okay, maybe it's a bit of an obsession!

Heres a collage of my first 7 paintings from the first week of the challenge:

I wanted to share my most recent entry in the art show, Messages and Memories. The artwork I created is titled "Unresolved feelings" and includes words, messages and comments about my life in the last five years. It's been a rocky road at times, but it felt good to get the feelings out and to create something beautiful out of it. I like how Kate Ashton from Ashton Gallery in San Diego states that we are creating history in the canvas. Adding layer after layer as well as words, created that history for me.

I'm looking forward to creating for the next show later in September. Check back for updates later in the month!

Keep painting,

Monica
