LAKE MICHIGAN SHORELINE 9 x 11 - Day 11 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days

I needed to see some summer colors, and bask in the warmth of all this one portrays.
I knew I had a busy January, so why did I sign up for the 30 day challenge? I've been in the studio, framing, and also practising reciting a message I will be giving on creativity in February. Another - what was I thinking! This coming week looks equally as busy, the first chance I might have to paint will be Thursday.....we'll see. It's all good, just not getting in easel time.

100 x 100 x 100 Experiment - Day 6 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days

An experiment day for the 30 day challenge. I like to do 100 stroke challenges, but I often lose count in the process, so today I chose 100 pastels and used each pastel only once. This is a 10 x 10" - 100 square inch pastel on paper, done in less than 100 minutes.

WHERE'S MY SWEATER 6 x 8" Day 4 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days

My daughter's dog loves to visit. So many smells in the woods and in the summer she loves to swim.
She also loves to wear clothes, and picks her wardrobe from her very own basket filled with sweaters.

JANUARY MORNING 12 x 15 Day 1 - 30 in 30 Days

Morning sun filters through the trees creating a nice contrast between the blue snow shadows and the soft  peachy early morning light, This is the first day of Leslie Saeta's  Challenge to paint 30 in 30 days. I have a few commissions to do this month, so I'm not sure I'll complete the challenge, but it's fun to participate, so I'll post what I am able to get done.
