Here's the final group of 6"x6" squares for the "30 Paintings/ 30 Days Challenge" that was given by artist Leslie Saeta http://www.lesliesaeta.blogspot.com in January.
I marked off three 24"x18" canvases into 6"x6" blocks. Each canvas held 12 squares. "Rainbow Mix" was created using a full palette of "Warm & Cool" colors. I also used a wide variety of brushes I own (some I forgot I had) and painted one square totally with a narrow palette knife.
You can see all the squares, along with the finished canvases, together on my website Artwork pages. http://www.ginlammert.com ( I didn't start posting the very first works...but there are plenty squares side-by-side to enjoy the view.)
This challenge was a GREAT way for me to start the new year. I would recommend doing this exercise anytime if one feels in a creative slump. Just trying to make the same subject matter interesting over and over...and over .....makes for a challenge in itself.
