Here we go - 30 paintings in 30 days!

So, I might be crazy. Right now, I'm excited, but ask me again on September 30th. For more than a year, I've been intrigued by this 30 Paintings in 30 Days challenge that the Artist Helping Artists podcast puts on in January and September. For the first time, I'm doing it. I'm so excited, in fact, that I bought all 30 canvases in July. 

No, I don't know what all I'm painting (but the photo below is definitely on the list) and no, I don't expect to actually finish 30 paintings, but I do expect to paint a lot more than I would have otherwise, I do plan to start 30 paintings, and I would love to finish them all. We'll just have to see how it goes and we'll all learn what I'm made of -- for better or worse.

I'll likely post the most updates on Instagram, which is where you can see not only finished paintings, but behind-the-scenes shots and inspiration photos that I take while out and about. You can follow me on Instagram and if you don't use Instagram, you can still always pull up my feed in a web browser. Here's a little taste:

I'll also be posting all paintings on the challenge's website as well as right here, in the News section of my site. If you would like to get an email every day in September with my latest painting, you can do that, too. Just sign up below.

Yes, I want to get a painting a day in my inbox in September.

Thanks in advance for your encouragement and enthusiasm. I can tell you for sure that I wouldn't be doing this without the support I've received over the past year from people like you.
