The Bike

This bike… I struggled a lot with this one… scraped it twice… went to bed thinking I could never do it… wondered why I ever said okay to this commission… prayed… and prayed and prayed some more…and I really think God answered my prayer… here it is… finished… I think…

Day 30 ~ Tandem

Having weddings on our minds these days, one of my daughters told me that I need to have a card suitable for weddings, and that she thought a tandem bike could be my inspiration for this… So I tried painting a tandem bike…

That’s it for the 30 days. I was able to post a painting every day, except for two. 🙂  I think that is the most I’ve ever done on the 30 day challenge. I wish I had more time each day to view what all the other artists were doing. Looking forward to seeing the collages.

Day 24 ~ Collecting Wildflowers

I started this painting Friday, the 27th and now it’s Monday, the 30th, the last day of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days. Already the other artists are finishing up and making collages and I’m still trekking along.  This one was inspired by my bike and the wildflowers I collected to make one huge beautiful wildflower bouquet.

My weekend was full of family and friends. We had a great time… love spending time with my grandchildren. But now I’ve got a whole lot of catching up to do, not just in painting, but my garden, my broody hen laying on 14 eggs under my porch and more…much more…

I am trading one pf my paintings for another painting done by an artist and I will share that in another post. I’m really excited about trading or bartering, an idea that came about by a spinner who is trading me homespun for a painting. What a fabulous idea!

So, if anyone would like to trade or barter, just let me know. 🙂

Day 15, 16, 17 ~ Mini Paintings

I’ve been working hard to catch up today. Just got 3 mini paintings done. They are so cute and come with a little stand…

Autumn Flowers

I found these tiny canvases at Hobby Lobby when I was on my trip. These will be perfect to sell at my Market on the Farm that I hope to get together the second week in October.

So here are my 3 catch up paintings for today…
