Study 20 - oil on paper - NFS
Day 30! Thank you Leslie Byrd Saeta for posing the challenge of painting 30 paintings in 30 days & thanks to all the support from family, friends & followers. The challenge got my creative juices flowing. I have 2 large paintings already started & I will post them as they are completed. This small study has my beloved turquoise (muted) as the star of the show, but I have paired it with a grayed brown, black & a touch of bright color for interest.

A Path Less Taken 'Study' - 12 x 12 - oil on canvas
Day 26 in the 30 in 30 challenge, check out the other fine artists participating in Leslie Byrd Saeta's challenge. Here I am working with shapes always trying to find the balance between hard & soft edges, dark & light, vibrant & muted. This will be a lovely large painting, stay tuned.

Study 17 - oil on paper - NFS
Day 25 in the 30 in 30 challenge, Whew! This is a small corner of a 6 x 9 painting that was not successful. I cropped the photo until I got a 'painting that I liked'. Many artists will not talk about their 'failed' pieces, I look at everything as a learning experience. I did not care for the color 'marriage' or balance of shapes in the larger painting so I cropped it down. This small 4" x 4" could potentially be a successful large painting.
