30 Paintings in 30 Days - September 2013 Challenge

Hello Everyone,

I have been following Leslie Saeta's blog for a little while now.  She is hosting a 30 Paintings in 30 Days challenge for the month of September 2013.

I figured this would be an excellent way for me to practice my painting.  So, I found the courage to sign up!  I am entry #112.  So far there are 309 artists that have signed up!  This is going to be an amazing task and I hope that I can keep up with it!

Keep your fingers crossed for me.

So....I hope to be posting my 'daily' paintings for the entire month of September!! Yikes!

Have a Great Weekend Everyone!

Cheers!  Happy Painting!  and..  Break a Bristle!

Diane Culhane's Online Class: Between Speech & Silence as part of Carla Sonheim's Summer Art Camp!

WOW WEE!  Was that A lot of FUN!!! 

I just finished taking one of the online classes over at Carla Sonheim's Summer Art Camp taught by Diane Culhane. 

Here are the paintings/drawings I completed.

These are from DAY 1: 

and last but not least:

Here are my finished mixed media collages from DAY 2 and DAY 3:

My husband calls her "Bubbles the Ballerina". 



And this is from DAY 2 and DAY 3 as well.  I got creative and used a whiskey bottle instead of paper.

Instead of "Time In A Bottle".... we have "Time ON A Bottle"....lol 


another view:

and another mixed media on paper:

This one is my pride and joy!  I call her "Flora"...

DAY 4 and DAY 5:

These next two were painted onto a cedar fence board...

So, if you are looking to take a wonderfully fun and very informative online art class, I highly recommend taking Diane Culhane's: Between Speech & Silence offered over at Carla Sonheim's blog. 

Wishing all of you a great weekend! 

Cheers! & Happy Painting;  "Break a Bristle"....
