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!

"Mom's Sunflowers," 5"x7", ink and watercolor on aquaboard. $45 unframed

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!

First solo art show!

I am excited to announce my first solo art show. I'm busily packaging note cards, prints, originals, etc., and getting ready for Saturday. It will be held at the Women's Hope Medical Clinic, which is a great ministry with a nice space for art. I love this ministry and will be donating a portion of the proceeds to them. Please come!
