Yay! Mission accomplished!

I DID IT! 80 paintings in 80 days! I wasn't sure I could, and there were times I wanted to just watch TV and NOT paint. The art was posted daily on Facebook - the response amazing! It turned out to be a wonderful learning experience.  I was able to see Three Rivers (and Exeter) with new eyes, I was able to make instant decisions, and I have a new respect for Facebook.

TO THANK everyone who purchased one of my "paintings -a- day", I had a drawing to give away paintings. I went to Colors Art Gallery, where I found Anne Haxton, who offered to draw the winning names.

$100 painting - Debbie Jo Byrd.
$50 painting- Nancy Schroeder.
$25 painting- Carol Greninger.

A Painting A Day

WENDY McKELLAR of Colors Art Gallery and I have an art show running from June 1st to August 19th at the Creative Center in Visalia, CA. Just for fun, I challenged myself and her to create a painting a day for the duration of the show That's 80 paintings. For my part, the paintings will be painted either en plein air or in my studio. Either way, each piece will be a scene captured in the 2 miles between my studio and my home. I will post here daily. Enjoy my home town!

All paintings are acrylic on canvas unless stated otherwise.
