Daily Painting

Daily painting for the '30 in 30' challenge. This one is experimental. I've never painted with acrylics on paper, but once it's gessoed, it has a similar feel. The goal is to paint some small paintings on paper, so that I can paint anywhere. I'm experimenting with watercolor and gouache, and pastels too. That's going … Continue reading Daily Painting

Whew….

This seemed harder this time...or did I say that the last time I joined the '30 paintings in 30 days' challenge? Frankly, I'm glad it's over. I can't stand the pressure. I thought it would help me refine my skills, improve my discipline, and make my body of work more cohesive. It might have. But … Continue reading Whew….

Also, for those of you who receive my blog feed, I might just start posting all my paintings at the end of the week so I don't clog your inbox with daily … Continue reading Couldn’t stop at one…

I didn’t like the marsh…

Well, I said I'd be painting marsh paintings, which I did. However I decided the marsh wasn't finished and I also painted some flowers, so here they are. Day 1. It's a flexible thing, this 30 day painting challenge, right?   SaveSave

30 Paintings in 30 Days…Almost

I'm REALLY not sure why I'm doing this. Did I say that last time? I think so. I don't have time to paint a painting EVERY day. I don't. But all that daily effort just makes my paintings better, solidifies my current style, and improves my discipline. So I'm going to participate anyway. Even though I really … Continue reading 30 Paintings in 30 Days…Almost

Is ‘stop and smell the roses’ too cliche?
