30 Paintings in 30 Days: Day 1

 

Happy New Year!

Here we go! I am embarking on my second 30 paintings in 30 days challenge. I loved this project in September and am excited to do it again. I didn't complete all 30 paintings last time (I think I started 25 and finished 19 or something like that) and I think I will finish fewer this month. I am busy getting ready for the Oklahoma City Festival of the Arts in April and need to work on big paintings that definitely can't be completed in a day.

Today's painting is a present for my mom for helping me with the 2016 Festival of the Arts -- thankfully she is patient as it's already been eight months. This one is almost done. I need to work a little more on the grass and trees. It is 12"x12" on a cradled wood panel.
