Day 12 of 30 in 30

Finding my mood to be off. I was hoping for a resolution today but everything is still up in the air. I like things settled and in place and the whole limbo thing kinda is stressing me. I developed a cold sore and it is a pretty bad one. I really wish my body would find a better way to manage stress. So again painting is a struggle but I did another day.
 I would love to do true abstracts but find it quite challenging. I can loosen up and maybe if I practice some more this way it will get easier. Here is day 12

Day 11 of 30 in 30

So the last few days have been kind of stressful so it was hard to get in the right mind set to paint. I did two paintings today but still a bit of a struggle. So here is day 11

Day 10 30 in 30 Daily Painting

So today didn't go as well as I would like so tomorrow I have a meeting. Did get some things done around the house. Made my great grandmother's blackberry cobbler recipe with my son. So good. Also I made some jewelry, a piece for me and for a local benefit auction. 
First the watercolor painting

This is the earrings and bracelet set for the benefit auction. I hope it brings a good amount for a great cause. 
These are the present for me love the simplicity.

Day 9 30 in 30 Daily Painting

Today was an emotional roller coaster, so it was hard to concentrate on painting.  We have started into another school year. My 3rd grader is settled in and excited about everyday. My high schooler has decided to do another year of home school and is getting back in routine.  My middle daughter with Aspergers is in 6 th and does not want to go at all.  We are trying a longer schedule of 2:30 instead of 11:30 and trying to encourage riding the special Ed bus. The longer schedule is quite challenging and we are still not sure it will hold. We are at least trying to get through the week. The bus thing was a disaster that led to much crying and frustration. There was a little delay in time since it is a new schedule and the other child on the bus is moving and talking the whole time and she was disturbed by the other child joyfully repeating her name the whole trip  incorrectly. So this is the opposite of a personality that she can tolerate, especially at the end of a stressful day. By the time she got off the bus I was informed it was the worse experience of her life among other things. So I let it pass and everything to calm down, I am finally learning. Later in the evening when everyone was less emotional I made a phone call and found out the bus driver can fit it in her schedule to bring Olivia home alone before picking up the other child. So tomorrow we will start again, make a few more phone calls and hope for a better outcome. 
In between I painted.

Day 7 30 in 30 in September Daily Painting

So yes you are reading this right, it is a day late. This was the painting in my head to do yesterday but did not have the energy to get it on paper. Yesterday I did the Dirty Dash in Missoula with my family and some good friends. I had not physically prepared but since it is more for fun and to have mud fights with the people you know and love I did fine. It is really fun and something that my 16 year old son really enjoys that we can take part in together. We dress up and act like we are all kids again. Plus part of the money you spend which for all you get out of it is relatively low goes to a great cause the CASA of Missoula.
So when I got home the bruises and sore muscles were already showing up. So I filed the painting away in my head for this morning. 
It is another watercolor on vintage sheet music.
This too is available for sale for $25.00 please leave your email in comments
