Made it one more day!
I am trying some water mixable oils by Winsor & Newton....
I'm still learning...
and I love them!
See my art at Honeysuckle Lane. I also have folk art there so you'll need to scroll down a few items to see my paintings.

Lavender and Bumblebees
16" x 20"
acrylic on canvas
It's been very hit or miss for me during the 30 paintings in 30 days, but I'm going to post whatever I manage to get finished. I am enjoying it... I just can't find enough time in the day!
Thanks for visiting...
P.S. I'll eventually get my new paintings listed here and here.

I finished a painting I started several days ago. I really like how it turned out, although there are a couple of things I see that I should have done differently. I think I got caught up in some of the things I wanted to make sure I did and I forgot to notice the overall painting. But, this Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days, which is hosted by Leslie Saeta, is for me to learn more and be more consistent in my art. I'm not able to do one every single day, but I'm adding them as I can.
Thank you for stopping by!

I finished a small painting today. The last two I did were on canvas, and even though I've painted on hardboard lots of times before, it was a struggle to do this one, as simple as it is. I don't mean to sound negative, just being honest. I could see the painting in my mind, knew every stroke I wanted to make, but it wouldn't happen. I'm not sure if it was the switch from canvas to hardboard, or the paint, or the wrong brush... or all of the above. I wanted to use a palette knife with this one but I ended up using brushes. And I think my perspective is off on the rows of lavender... oh, well... I guess I can always paint over it and start again.
At least I painted today! :)

|8"x 10", acrylic on canvas, palette knife|
Okay, let me start off by saying I painted this on New Year's Eve. The reason I'm sharing this (again) for the 30 Paintings in 30 Days challenge is because I feel guilty in joining it 5 days late... and I wanted to share something! :)
If you want to see more photos and read about it, just scroll back a couple of posts and you'll see it.
I'll do my best to get another painting ready for tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope this challenge will help me to learn more and get loosened up for all those lavender paintings I want to do.
I will eventually list some of my challenge paintings at Honeysuckle Lane.

I've started on my lavender paintings... surely I'll have a good series of them by June for the Lavender Festival.
This one is 12" x 12" on canvas. I'll probably do some 6" x 6" sizes and I'll definitely do larger ones, too.... maybe 16" x 20" and 24" x 24".
This one isn't quite finished. I still have to tweak the barn roof before I sign it.
I'll be back at least once a week to share more photos. Please come back and see me! :)
