20 in 20: June Birthday Bash Giveaway, Day 20

Woohoo!!! I did it! Today is the last painting for this 20 in 20 giveaway project. I must admit, things got a little rocky for me during the last week or so, but I persevered, and today I can proudly stand back & look at my accomplishment! If you’d like to see an overview of all the paintings, check out my 20 in 20 set on flickr.

Day 20 of my 20 in 20 Giveaway

When looking for an item to include in a photo set up for this painting, I was drawn a basket that’s hanging on the wall. Placing the painting in the basket seemed to be the thing to do!

  1. I love this one…the colours are so beautifully composed. You feel like it is continually moving around, a bit like a kaleidescope. The basket is like an extension to the drawing.

    You’re sharing happiness to everyone in the world! Thank you for the chance 🙂


  4. I’m being sucked into this like it’s an infinite abyss, but this abyss is full of color and lightness and beauty. I love it!

  5. What a great way to complete your project!
    Well, it’s already 29th here so I wish you a very Happy Birthday my friend!!!
    Hope that you enjoyed this project as much as we did seeing it unfolding every day.

  6. Wow. Your colors and shapes here are amazing. And what an achievement this whole project is! I am so inspired by you — Happy Birthday Anika!

  7. What a beautifully complex painting. And styling it in the basket is a wonderful idea. Hmmm, think I’m going to reconsider how I’m framing some of my heart and see if working with some flat baskets might work. Thanks for the inspiration A!
