30/30 Painting #3: no longer counting by days... :)

This is another 6"x6" watercolor on aquaboard. It's from a photo I took of some irises while plein air painting with my mom and the Alabama Plein Air Artists earlier this year.

30/30 Day 1: Mom's Sunflowers

I am playing with aquaboard for the first few paintings in this challenge. This was a fun painting of some of the flowers my mom has gotten since she got sick. It is MUCH looser and darker than my usual paintings, and I kind of regret putting the black ink in this one. However, I had fun!

I'm giving it another go! 30 paintings in 30 day challenge starts Monday

Once again I am going to take on the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge. I know full well that I probably won't be able to paint 30 during September, but the challenge helps me paint more than usual. I'll be pleased if I can accomplish 15. 

My mom is currently undergoing chemotherapy and I am spending a lot of time back and forth between my parents' home and mine. Now that she is in somewhat of a routine I feel more able to announce that I will be taking the challenge on. It should be a lot of fun!
