Well, I finally managed to get another painting done...switched it over to ducks.

May still get more boats I have some more I want to do. Hospital scheduled for Feb. 3.

Day 8

Seems like I keep falling further and further behind. The nurses who will be monitoring my new medication are coming today to discuss this. I am so ready for this.
This is a watercolor I did a few years ago from one of my favorite boat haunts. 9 x 12 on 300 LB arches. Not sure what the rest of the week will bring, but hope to get some more done.

Day 7

Here is today's entry. Somehow I will catch up, maybe next week. This is 8" x 8"  oil pastel on gessoed hardboard. I'm having a get together with my former art teachers tomorrow...always a fun time.

It was almost dark taking this picture so I'll try to get a better one tomorrow.

Day 5

Well I got behind a little. stuff going on and I will probably get behind again as I have to have a small surgical procedure done soon. However, I may try to get ahead.

Day 4

I really didn't think I would finish this, but here it is. I may go back and tweak it some as I was fighting with the surface, not as smooth as I like it.
6" x 6" oil pastel on gessoed hardboard. Used my own gesso and it has a lot of texture.

Day 3

This seemed fitting for today. 16" of snow on the ground and bitter cold.

Day 1

I have signed up to do the 20 paintings in 30 days challenge by Leslie Saeta. It was a lot of fun last year and even though I will be working from home this month, I hope to get them done. I have chosen to do boats, and am still gathering pictures.

I am cheating a little as I finished this before I got sick.....but it is a start.
