I took a photo of this cute little guy when we were at our favorite Guthrie coffee shop Hoboken. Don’t look too close, but I just noticed a lion face on the hood of his sweatshirt. I’ll have to change that… 🙂

This is the last day of the challenge and honestly I can’t believe I made it. I don’t want to whine on here, but just to say I went through several days of excruciating middle back pain. My shoulder has been hurting intensely where it was hit by a car years ago… to the point where I had to hold my arm up to paint at times. My husband has had a terrible tooth abscess, my daughter has been sick for a week with chills, fever and headaches… It has been a difficult month. On the brighter side we are all recovering and feeling a whole lot better. 🙂

 

Day 18 ~ The Goldfish

Just joking about the title… 🙂 I’m so tired and brain numb that I asked my daughter what I should call this painting and she said I should paint a goldfish in the bowl…

I don’t know why I start such a big project on a daily painting challenge… but I’m not quite finished with this one… No goldfish though… 🙂

Day 12 ~ Tasmania Bay

Not sure, but I think this might be the Bay of Fires in Tasmania, that I have painted several paintings of before. My daughters went to Tasmania a couple of years ago and I asked them to take pictures so I could paint some beautiful scenes that I will never get to see. I played around with a palette knife on this one. I’m really liking the textures.

This is actually larger and not square, but my regular camera is not working very well, so I saved this from my Instagram. The actual painting is 12″ x 16″ oil on canvas.
