30 Day Challenge -- Painting #1

"By the Silo"
(watercolor on paper)
5" x 5"

I'm probably insane, but I've signed up for Leslie Saeta's "30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge." If you're not familiar with Leslie, or her challenge I encourage you to check out her blog -- she's very inspiring and has LOTS of great marketing advice and services to offer. I've plotted out and readied the first 15 paintings. Now I just have to paint them!  :)  Seriously, this is a big commitment for me, but I think it's going to be very worthwhile -- I just hope I can keep up without going nuts. I've wanted to do more small "daily" paintings and although I'm working on larger paintings, I'm committed to having a new finished painting each day. We'll see how it goes. I'm sure there will be some clunkers, but I know that I'll be learning a lot as I go. 

As for more progress . . . here's "Big Fruit" (below). I'm going between this one and my big grapes. Both are moving along. I'm excited to get them both finished.

Have a good day and thank you for tuning in.  :)

  2. I recognized it right away. It took me back to my kid's Fischer Price days.
    Great work!

  3. Oh Kara, I have been talking to all my friends who will listen about your work. They must be tired of hearing it by now.
    The latest golden retriever was perfect in every way. You are so thoughtful and thorough .

    1. Thank you so much, Jo. You are always so thoughtful and kind. Good luck with the Challenge -- although you're always keeping up with your daily paintings, so this shouldn't be too different for you. I really love your latest house paintings! :)

    1. Thank you, Niharika. My theme is Fisher Price People -- the toys. The fruit painting I also posted doesn't have anything to do with the challenge -- it is a larger painting that I've been working on.
