30 Days of Painting ~ Blaze of Glory

Well, I had good intentions of 30 days of painting, but......
Despite all of my best efforts
I managed to catch my husband's head cold
that had me down for the count last week.
On top of that, I've had, as we say in the world of painting,
3 wipers in a row.
Meaning 3 of my last 4 paintings have been not what
I was hoping for and either have been wiped clean
or now sit in the unfinished pile.
With all of that I decided to go back to an old faithful subject,
The Rooster!
Meet "Blaze of Glory"
Quite the regal Fella of Fire!

30 Days of Painting ~ Glass Study #6 Blue & Green Glass

Making just a little more progress rendering glass 
in oil paints!
Glass Study #6 I believe is my best one so far.  
Though I have started study #7 so stay tuned.
Some of my astute artist friends, if you look closely 
or go to the larger view 
you may notice a few brush strokes (shhh, don't tell)
I know, another traditional painting AND brush strokes!
Can you believe it???

Sadly, I have fallen off the wagon of 30 days of painting.
However, the reason for this was because I was
in Scottsdale AZ 
going from gallery to gallery viewing LOTS of art.  
So in a way I was painting with my eyes and memories, 
does that count?  I am going for it.  :-)

I am back home now and back to the paints with lots of
inspiration and ideas! 
We shall see what these ideas turn into?

30 days of Painting ~ Day 1

A fellow artist has put out a challenge to do 
30 paintings in 30 days 
to start off the New Year. 
Originally I was not going to do this challenge as I am 
NOT a paint a painting in a day person.  
However, the point of the challenge is more to get yourself back into the studio
and paint daily.  So I am challenging myself to paint
daily for the next 30 days.  

To get things started off I turned to my friend and favorite subject to paint
The Sun
No matter what mood I am in, or how non-creative I am feeling
I can Always manage to paint the Sun. 
So for Day One, I did manage to do a painting in a day.

Since I wasn't planning on doing the challenge I hadn't 
prepped my website for links and such. 
Please bear with me while I put on the computer geek hat and provide 
you with better links to view these challenge paintings
in larger versions. 
since I have no title for this painting, if something comes to mind please
either post a comment on Facebook or leave your suggestion in the
Comment Box below.
