Day 29-30 Paintings in 30 Days-Flower Child

This little piggy popped into my head while I was walking the dog tonight.  It's always good for me to take a walk and clear my mind.  I like the way he turned out.  I hope you do too.  Thanks for visiting!

30 Paintings in 30 Days-Day 28-Abstract Cow

Well, I DID paint 30 paintings in 30 days.  I painted 3 at the Farmer's Market on Saturday, but guess who forgot to take a picture??? I will be at the Gallery Walk in Oshkosh next Saturday, so I left the new paintings there for the show.  lol Oh well, I will post them here at a later date, but did not have a entry for Day 27.

30 Paintings in 30 Days-Day 26-Zany Pears

Jumping the gun a bit to get this entered.  Too busy tomorrow to take care of this then!

30 Paintings in 30 Days-Day 25 and it's FRIDAY!!

TGIF.  It's been a busy week and this weekend proves to be even more so.  Date night tonight.  I need some quiet time with my hubby for sure then up at the crack of dawn as I make my way to the Farmer's Market for an Art Demo and hopefully some sales. Right after packing that all up, it's lunch with the hubby and grandkids then a two hour drive to close an account at a Gallery.  Always a struggle when the Gallery wants to keep you, but you are not generating enough income at this location to make it worth staying.  So with all that, I'm still keeping up with my 30 paintings.  Helps to paint ahead (wink, wink)!  I'm still on the apple kick, but much more whimsical version today which I love to paint.  Thanks for stopping by!

Welcome to Day 24 of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge.  Whew!  I'm gonna need a break after this!  If they'd let me retire and paint full-time this would be a breeze, right?  The week has been gorgeous here in Wisconsin and it's Apple Harvest time, so my offering today reflects that time of year.  Enjoy!

30 Paintings in 30 Days-Canvas Class

My 16th painting this month is from my Canvas Class last night. My lovely group of ladies didn't think they had enough painting experience to do anything too complicated, so they decided on a whimsical "Charlie Brown" Christmas tree.  My image is a little blurry, but you get the drift.  I think they had a good time.

Day 10-30 Paintings in 30 Days

Hello Fellow Artists and Friends!  It's Day 10 of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days.  If you know my art, I've got a little series going that has been very popular.  It's paintings of children-sort of generic, without faces in happy little scenes.  My first one was "Hurry Home" which appears at the top of my blog here and then there was "To the Park" and "Spring in our Step." All originals of these have sold, so I've added another one to the series-this one is titled "Catching Fireflies."  I hope you like it.

I'm going to cheat a little.  I actually started painted this one last week.  I did paint one today, but it's not quite finished, so that will be my day 2 post.  This one is "new" too, so it will have to count.  Someday I'll get retired and then I can paint EVERYDAY!  Thank you for visiting my blog.  It is nice to share this challenge with you!

Happy Painting!

30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge-Day 1

Well here we go again!  I love these challenges!  Commits me to painting, gets me marketed and I love to see what everyone else has submitted.  I only had a small slot of time to paint today, so reverted to one that I had already painted once and it sold the same day, so I did it again!  Happy Painting!
