#30paintingsin30days!  


Leslie Saeta Challenge

I have always wanted one of those black and white photos with one or two items highlighted with color.  I took the original picture a few years ago of the bush in our backyard.

30 PAINTINGS in 30 DAYS...Day 9

One of my favorite places to shop is Gudrun.  The founder of the company, Gudrun Sjoden, is also a watercolor artist.  Her passion for textiles and handicrafts is how she shares her art with the world.  So this simple watercolor tulip painting is done in the spirit of Gudrun.

30 PAINTINGS in 30 DAYS...All Caught Up Now

I signed up for Leslie Saeta's challenge to paint 30 paintings in 30 days!  After my son's lengthy hospital stay and recovery, I finally have some time to try this out.  I really need to get back in touch with my creative side.  As I started late, here are the first 8 days of paintings.  Some were acrylic on canvas and the rest are acrylic on paper or watercolor.  I really must place this disclaimer:  I AM NOT A PROFESSIONAL ARTIST!  I love color in all types of art.  I don't know if the bottom 2 count as painting, but they were fun.
