I have decided to join the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge.

Of course, you may say,  I don’t actually paint, and art quilts take longer than one day to complete . . . .  so I’ll do the best I can.

The challenge was started by artist Leslie Saeta, and January, 2016 is the 7th challenge she has hosted. In September 2015, 1500 artists in 28 countries took part.

Some people pick themes.  I picked “Things Go Wrong,” after I broke my wrist at the beginning of December.

I wanted to make some quilts that include something from my walks in the neighborhood.  In this case it is the old broken down pick up chassis on the left, being taken over by nature. It rests up the hill from me, not quite forgotten by my car-restoring neighbor.

But I’ll make some other-themed pieces as well.  There will be some on the topic of food, as I’m readying for a local show on that topic.

And — who knows — probably some landscapes, or some on the theme of “Old Wood” which I embarked upon some time ago.

Here is my day one piece, “A Lot Goes Wrong.” It is a small art quilt using fabrics and papers.
