Tag Archives: 30 Paintings In 30 Days

Here they are, all 30 paintings in a collage.

PicMonkey Collage3Well 30 days has passed and I started 2 paintings  yesterday that I am going to turn into encaustics. I certainly think I would have gotten the award for the most variety in media on this challenge. A lot of this was experimentation for me as what I normally do takes several days to complete. The collage was made by a cool program called picmonkey.

Now I am turning back to working on my Rousseau like paintings that I will be needing for an exhibition. I usually complete a painting in a week.

Happy Ground Hog Day and happy birthday to my dear friend Patricia Barr who is working in chilly Fairbanks, Alaska!

Up and Away, 30 Paintings in 30 Days, Day 30, Oh My!

Up up and away

I really love everything going on in this painting. Laying on of hands, midwifery, flying in the air, trumpets playing, creatures talking.

This is a 9″ by 12 ” Ink and Watercolor on Arches 300 pound cold press paper. I do enjoy making paintings in my usual style.

So, 30 days of 30 paintings has come to an end. A great challenge with over 200 participants started by Leslie Saeta. You can see everyone’s works on her blog page.

This painting will be matted and framed in a maple frame. It is for sale for $450.00 framed and $350.00 unframed.

3 Little Kittens, 30 Days of 30 Paintings, day 29

3 kittens

I have been working on a larger painting for day 30 so today I am posting a drawing that I will complete over the next week. I continue with my poppies, enjoying the thought of them blooming this summer. But we did have gorgeous witch hazel blossoms today as the temperature hit 55.


These have a heavenly scent.  So joyous to be outdoors and smell their fragrance wafting on the breeze.

Another quick little painting. I guess I have Valentine’s on my mind. Another painting taken at night….hate to get those shadows in it, but the paper is all one color off white.

Making Up, Day 24 of 30 days of 30 paintings.

Making Up

You know how it is when you get upset with your sweetie and want to make up. I think he is really trying. Just an idea, no relevance to life as it is. Wonder what’s in the package? Take a guess.

This is a 4″ by 6″ watercolor, quite the Valentine!  $35.00

Sloucher, Day 23 of 30 paintings in 30 days.


Here it is low resolution.


And with sunlight reflecting the watercolor with ground mica.


And the real thing! Again inspired by my favorite artist Henri Rousseau. As we near the end of this challenge, I want to thank Leslie Saeta for encouraging us all to take on a painting a day.

This has been a great challenge and I had the opportunity to listen to Artists Helping Artists today. I am normally at work but this cold I have is a rough one. It was great to hear Leslie Saeta and Carrie Waller sharing their tips. When Carrie mentioned the golden Section I immediately thought of my husband’s work and the work of Harry Nadler from the late 1980’s.

This is an 8″ by 10″ Ink and Watercolor on  aqua board framed in a maple and black shadow box frame. It is for sale for $600.

Sometimes part of a painting makes a painting. I am working on several larger ones for a show and loved the interplay of colors here.

She’s Sick So Who Is Going To Feed Us? Day 21 of 30 days of 30 paintings.

She's SickSO who is going to fed us.

We have colds at our house. We both left work early to rest. The cats were waiting for food and didn’t get it right away so I made a little painting with them in mind.

I worked on a larger painting tonight for a little while,  but  feel I need to go slowly and thoughtfully to make it the best I can.
