one daily...one 150
oil on canvas hardboard
This is my daily painting for today. I spent most of the afternoon narrowing a million photos down to about 200 that I want to paint for the 150 Challange. The rest I put in plastic bags and hid away so I will forget about them and just concentrate on the ones I really want to finish. I'm going to put them in a big stack and go one by one in order until they're done. Except for my figurative pieces. Those I need practice with, so I will spend a week or so working on those all together. This particular painting was fun to paint. It's Taos mountain in late fall, the trees are still golden but there is a little snow on the ground. Winter is coming! Purchase information at the bottom.
The painting below is part of the 150 Challenge. I really love working with masses of flowers like this - paintings like this make me so happy to be a painter and to work with color every day.
