Everyone has inside of him a piece of good news. The good news is that you don't know how great you can be! How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is!


  I painted this bunny for my beautiful great nieice who lives across the world in Japan.  She is six months old and has the most gorgeous eyes and expression and always seems to be deep in thought and soaking in all that surrounds her! I so enjoyed painting this anticipating that it might bring a smile to her face!

Thirty Paintings In Thirty Days! - Day Thirty!!!

Just Passing Through

3" by 9" original oil on canvas

95.



On the last day of the Thirty Paintings In Thirty Days Challenge, I chose to do something whimsical and fun.  Our city of Norfolk, will recognize this iconic symbol that can be seen around town in the form of four foot and nine foot mermaids that were personalized by local artists.  They are a wonderful symbol of our coastal city and bring a smile to the faces of visitors and residents alike.  You can see a photo of one below that is outside Depaul Hostital and if you look closely you can see her stethoscope.  




I have loved the journey that this challenge has taken me on and thank you for coming along with me.  I plan to take the next week off and then work on painting a minimum of two hours five days a week and posting two days a week.  I plan to post even if it is not a painting!  Have a wonderful weekend!
Time to pop the cork on some bubbly! :0

At The Barn Door

3" by 9 " original oil on canvas



I was determined to do a painting on this narrow canvas so I ended
up doing a cowing coming down the hill and standing the the barn door!
It was kind of a frustrating painting that I almost gave up on but then decided to mush a lot of the details all together, simplifying everything, and I began to like it better.  Only one more to finish and will post it tomorrow.  It is a Norfolk mermaid on one of these skinny canvas..  It will be sort of a whimsical painting.
Have a wonderful Thursday!

Can't believe it is day twenty-seven of the thirty day challenge!  About midway through,  I sometimes feel like I must have a screw loose somewhere but then I 
move past it and look back at what I have accomplished and realize how much I have grown in many ways.  I get more accomplished in other areas of my life and find that I stretch myself to paint some things that I have put off and instead of over analyzing, I just get it done.  I highly recommend it as a discipline.  Even if you don't commit to painting one a day, spending time at the easel each day is a great practice.   As I move beyond this challenge, I am making a commitment to myself to go into my studio for at least two hours a day Monday through Friday.  Even if there is no plan for a new piece, I find that being in my creative space can sometimes inspire me to do something, I wasn't even thinking about. Thank you for checking in with me!

Marsh Wren

6" by 6" original oil on panel

150.


I began this painting with a wash of red paint in acrylic.  After it dried, I went to work with oils focusing on the darks and creating a strong contrast between the background and the subject's values.  I had so much fun.  I just love painting light!  I also focused on using colorful grays for relief to the brighter colors.  I do love birds!  Have you ever seen one of these birds perched out in the marsh?

Doesn't she look so relaxed?   There's something so peaceful and serene about seeing these beautiful creatures that dot the fields of Ireland's landscape.  I am so grateful to my friend Barbara who lives part of the year in Valentia and photographs the cows that are her neighbors!  Hope you are having a very peaceful weekend!

TGIF!  Actually I can't believe it is Friday already.  It has been a busy week and today I plan to paint with a friend in my studio.  It is always fun to get together with other artists and get inspired!  I plan to work on a couple of larger pieces this weekend.  I have liked mixing it up this month.  Have a wonderful day!
