30 in 30 day 20 – Lap Dog

Woo Hoo! 2/3 of the way through. I’m definitely at the what-the-hell-am-I-going-to-manage-to-finish-before-midnight-today stage. This time it was a tiny board. Clearly I’m still thinking about the Year of the Dog.

Plus some hillbilly music. I’m fascinated by how much Hank Williams III looks and sounds like his grand dad.

 

30 in 30 Day 16 – Island Dream

A tiny 4″ x 4″ oil on canvas today. Not sure where this came from, really – my subconscious must be liking the thought of drinking Mojitos on a beach somewhere. It’s not going to happen anytime soon, but it’s a nice dream nonetheless. A snowstorm has begun in Denver.

A Cat May Look at a Queen – 30 in 30 Day 14

Almost half way there today for the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge. Phew! Glad that February is a short month. Nice to think by the last day, we’ll be in lion-lamb territory with spring just around the corner

30 in 30 day 13 – Old Buzz

Getting to the point in the challenge where I’m thinking damn, this is tough. Almost didn’t  make it today but pulled through late with this little 7″ x 5″ oil on board.

“Old Buzz.”

30 in 30 day 12 – Midwinter Dream

Painted last night while the snow fell outside. I keep wondering when my seed catalogues will appear in my mailbox. Do companies still send seed catalogues?

30 in 30 day 11 – Sheep

One of the things that I like best about the 30 in 30 challenge is that it forces me to work more quickly and simplify things. I know this makes my paintings better, but I tend to forget and get fussy – and knowing something isn’t always the same as doing it. I’m pretty pleased with this little painting, and I hope I can remember to keep it simple after this month is over.

30 in 30 Day 10 – What Canary?

When you realize (again) that your sweet cat is actually a skilled and savage beast, aren’t you glad that the size disparity between the two of you isn’t reversed? I always am.
