Day 6 30 in 30 Daily Painting

Tried something new I have been wanting to try for awhile. I have been wanting to paint on vintage sheet music and book pages. It is a little challenging painting the watercolors on this type of paper but I really like the result. I hope to do more of this repurposing soon. 
This is available for sale for $25.00 if you would like this please leave a email in the comments.

Day 5 30 in 30 Daily Painting

Almost feel like this is the official start. 5th day in and feeling good. First time I really got in the groove in my studio, painting with music, rain and no interruptions. Wow unheard of this whole summer.

Day 4 of 30 in 30 Daily Painting

So here is another painting post right before bed and again it is still wet. We made it through a second day of school. (See I have three great kids. Each with there own gifts and talents. My middle child has Aspergers. Around here we have learned to take one day at a time, for we are not sure what each day holds and it all can change in a instant. Each day at school is an accomplishment. Our daughter does not only have pretty severe social anxieties but also struggles with academics and phobias. So when I say she made it through another day of school it is a huge deal. I know the fretting and worry on my part doesn't change anything but that doesn't mean I can make it go away. So right now to say that I made it through another day and actually did a painting is a pretty big deal for me right now too).  So here is my offering for today. It is one I dabbled with during day 1 and 2 but didn't complete until minutes ago. 
This one too is available for sale for $20.00 5x7 on watercolor paper. Please leave your email in the comments and I will get back to you. 

My brain has been so worn out from the nessecary things of my family it has completely checked out. So today when I went to the movies I had my mom pick me up an hour early, why? Because I was completely an hour off. We got there and I couldn't figure out why the parking lot was empty. Oops sorry mom. Glad the movie was good. Go see The Butler. Wow, it was worth seeing.

Day 3 of 30 in 30 Daily painting in September

I did this painting plein air on my back deck. I started it in the sunshine before going to pick up my girls from their first day of school. I left it lie to go get them and while I was gone it rained. No real damage done though. Many hours later after school pickup, errands, treats to celebrate first day, dinner, clean up and going over school things, I finally was able to finish it. It was still wet when I took the photo.

September 1 First day of 30 days of Painting

I think the colors are nice.
