#30PaintingsIn30Days Review, #30in30

Well, I knew I wasn’t going to be able to do a painting for each of the 30 days, but I did 14 new paintings, and they were 14 ideas I’d been wanting to paint for a while, so I consider that a success, for me. I had five more planned, but things get in […]

Tiffany and Rags, #30in30, Day 18

This is a little confusing for me because I’m skipping book number 20 in this series, and this is the cover for book number 21. I’m counting the cover painting I did as part of my “30 Paintings in 30 Days” painting, for day 18, so up we go with these two kitties and their […]

Touched By Evening, #30in30, Day 17

I am participating in Leslie Saeta’s annual “30 in 30” painting challenge this month. This is my painting for day 16. It’s sweet to study the buildings in an old small town where they rarely rise above four stories tall. I like to look at rooftops and caught this view while walking down a hill […]

I am participating in Leslie Saeta’s annual “30 in 30” painting challenge this month. This is my painting for day 16. This panting is named for the famous poem by Robert Frost, Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening, which was my first thought when I walked around a bend in the trail to see […]

Studio Morning Shift, #30in30, Day 15

I am participating in Leslie Saeta’s annual “30 in 30” painting challenge this month. This is my painting for day 15, and it’s the first cat sketch I’ve done. I painted a number of portraits over the holidays so I moved to landscapes and other subjects first. I actually had a different image planned for […]

Sparkling Gems, #30in30 Day 12

I am participating in Leslie Saeta’s annual “30 in 30” painting challenge this month. This is my painting for day 11. I have no idea why I chose to tackle this one today, except that after working on the water in yesterday’s little painting of a gull, the visualization I’ve had to do this painting […]

Observant Gull, #30in30 Day 11

I am participating in Leslie Saeta’s annual “30 in 30” painting challenge this month. This is my painting for day 11. What can you say about gulls that is unique, since this is pretty much what they do all day? I’ve done a few other gull paintings and intend to do a few more, but […]

Reflecting on Each Other, #30in30 Day 8

I am participating in Leslie Saeta’s annual “30 in 30” painting challenge this month. This is my painting for day 8. At this angle I could see a little splash of orange on the Granny Smith and a few specks of green on the Clementine. The light on each of them, the shadows and shapes […]

Curving Tracks, #30in30 Day Five

I am participating in Leslie Saeta’s annual “30 in 30” painting challenge this month. This is my painting for day 5. I took this photo a few years ago from an overpass and always wanted to sketch it in charcoal. The graceful curve of the tracks in any season, because I admire it all the […]

Dead End, #30in30 Day Four

I am participating in Leslie Saeta’s annual “30 in 30” painting challenge this month. This is my painting for day 4. I just love a row of houses in the sun. This street dead ends at the top of the bank of Chartiers Creek. The houses have been there over a century, flooded several times, […]
