Give me Freedom!

So sad when you're so busy trying to set-up your new art business that you don't have time to paint.  Whoa is me!  Oh for the freedom of retirement and no alarm clocks! Someday! In the meantime, here's a painting that has generated a lot of comments. "Mark's View", 18x24 Gallery Wrapped, Acrylic

One down-1 to go!

Finished with one of the signs (Face Cut-Out)I've been working on for the Pumpkin Patch. 1 Down, 1 to go!

Sunday, September 21, 2014


Well, I completely failed at the 30 Paintings in 30 days! Right after I signed up, I was fortunate to get a commissioned sale for some Carnival Face-Cut outs for a local Pumpkin Patch. So my 30 day promise failed, but Hey! I got a paying gig, right? I will post pictures of the cut-outs when completed. In the meantime, the afternoon turned gorgeous so I had a little time to do some plein air. I like it. Tell me what you think!

30 Paintings in 30 Days-Day 3!

Know for sure, I won't be able to keep up with a painting a day, already!  Life just plain gets in the way and I don't want to paint, just to "Paint."  It should be enjoyable.  Full day yesterday, so whipped this one out late last night.  Not my best effort, but at least I painted!

Part of my 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge

I'm working on a Seasonal Set and this is part of that set.  This would be a winter scene.

30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge

Participating in the the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge!  Let's hope I can find the time to do a painting a day!  I might have to cheat a little and paint multiple paintings on weekends.  Still a full-time working "grunt".  Leslie Saeta 30 Paintings in 30 Days suggested a theme for our challenge, so I thought I'd try to paint a Barn everyday.  Here is my first contribution.
