30 in 30 Challenge

I accepted the challenge of Leslie Saeta to paint/post 30 paintings in 30 days in January 2017.  This challenge has been around for a few years.  It has involved into a less stressful event than in the beginning.  At first the rules were that you had to actually paint 30 paintings in 30 days.  This is no small challenge.  It now lets you set your own rules but the goal is still the same....paint more. I will attempt to paint and post 30 paintings but if the inevitable life issues get in the way I will post a recent work. I am excited to join this because when you paint daily, your grow as an artist.  I will post on Leslie's site, on facebook and on this page.  You can follow me as I get into some major brush mileage.  Some paintings will be for sale.

DAY 14

There is a before and after to this painting. The tree in the foreground of the original version (see below) kept bothering me. Although the tree was there I felt like it fought with the Monument which was the main point of interest. So I reworked the painting this week and you can comment if you like on my change on my professional facebook page Paint Savannah.  I encourage you to "like" my page . I painted this to show in the new Savannah Art Association Gallery which is located on Chippewa Square and opens Sunday.
