#30paintingsin30days Day 24: Main Street September Morning

I love quiet little street scenes, and living in a small town they aren’t difficult to find7 There were people around aside from me—some of the shadows on the sidewalk are from cars—so it was just a momentary empty sidewalk. I remember paying more attention to the two flags slowly waving back and forth on […]

#30paintingsin30days Day Four: Sunset, Moonset

NOTE: The scanned image was not accurate so I photographed it and replaced it. Sometimes the moon follows the sun over the edge, especially as it did this summer evening after storms cleared. The lower sky was layered with clouds in all colors, wispy, puffy blended as if I’d put my finger up there and […]

#30paintingsin30days Day 3: Mimi in the Laundry Shade

NOTE: The original scan I posted wasn’t accurate, too contrasty and colors were not accurate, so I photographed it the next day and replaced the image. This was painted from a photo I took in August 2015. I’ve always wanted to do a simple little painting of it: my colorful dresses and skirts moving gently […]

#30paintingsin30days, Day 2: Geraniums and Parsley

I’m working on my spatters. I think they worked pretty well here. Typically when I look out my back door I see my big vegetable garden, lots of perennial flowers and wildflowers, and my everlasting pink and red geraniums, some of which are 15 years old and saved in the basement each winter. This year, […]

#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 […]

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 17. 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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

Summer Morning from the Deck, #30in30 Day Two

I am participating in Leslie Saeta’s annual “30 in 30” painting challenge this month. This is my painting for day 2. This painting is one of those sweet familiar ones I’ve been wanting to paint for years: an early summer morning, hazy and bright, seen from my deck or through my kitchen window, geraniums in […]
