Collage from 30 Days of Painting

Original Oils Paintings from 30 days of painting
Click for a Closer Look

The paintings that were created during the January
challenge of 30 Days of Painting.  
Not only do I LOVE painting daily, which is something I already knew but,
it is also essential to my mental health 
and emotional well being.  
Over time I began to become aware that with each passing day that I don't paint my grumpy and moodiness increase.
When I find myself in a testy mood or feeling antsy and restless
I know it's time to get my butt into the studio and paint!  
So the smart thing for me to do IS paint daily.  
My husband appreciates it when I paint daily as well. LOL

Someone asked me the other day if all my paintings are successful?
The answer to that is absolutely NOT.  
I actually worked on 3 other paintings in January that are not pictured.
One is "finished" but I am not happy with it so will be delegated to the
"well that didn't work pile."
One is in the unfinished object pile and may or may not get worked on again. 
And the third one I just finished a few days ago, so I
consider it to be a February painting. 
The point being is that not every painting has to be a perfect one.  
Just being in the studio painting and doing what one
Loves to do is all that matters.  

Let me know what you think?
Thanks for spending a few moments of your time with me and as
always I Love having my Art Shared with other. 


  1. Love the texture and your colors are lovely. My hubby asks me in a hopeful voice - if I am going to the studio when I get snippy. I know just what you mean.
    Thanks for visiting my blog.

    1. Thanks Julie appreciate the kind words. I often ask my husband in a hopeful voice when he has to go on the road next for work as this means lots of studio time for me. :-)
      Thanks for stopping by.
