Day 16 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days

I don't have a finished painting for today, but I did paint and thought I would share my two beginnings with you. The base coats are done, except for the sky in the second painting. Tomorrow I hope to continue.

Our Virtual Paint Out Group is visiting Scotland this month. I found so many interesting scenes, but the castles are my favorites. I enjoy having new subject matter to explore each month.

Day 6 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge


Owl's Head Lighthouse in Owl's Head, Maine. Located just minutes from downtown Rockland, it is a great spot for mackerel fishing. This was painted from a photo that I took a few years ago from our boat.

Day 2 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge

We are fortunate to have many old apple trees on our property. Last year was an especially good year for apples - the result of a wonderful abundance of apple blossoms in the spring.

Day 1 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge.

Happy New Year!

Today is the first day of Leslie Saeta's January 2016 Challenge of 30 paintings in 30 days.  Today we will also find out the destination of our January Virtual Paint-Out. I hope to incorporate the Paint-Out in the Challenge!


Belfast Harbor Ice 6x8, oil SOLD

This painting is from a photo that I took a few years ago. On my way to the gallery in Belfast, I took the road by the harbor. It was a cold morning and I could see that ice had formed overnight. The sailboats, in their winter coverings, are now frozen in.
