30 day challenge day 10

     Day 10! It has been a few days since I posted. We had a virus running amok in the house and both girls were down sick this week. Never a fun time!   We should be all better now, so it’s back to business. Our day 10 piece keeps calling me to adjust…

30 day challenge day #7

   8×10 “saddleseat in Rose”  Yay!! Our first week is done. I’ve already learned a lot this week. I learned it is near impossible for me to stay on target if I am not up early in the morning to paint. I also learned I have to think and plan ahead for the week. My…

Vertical trot, day 3

   Day 3! Okay I really like this composition! It’s just so…outside anything I normally do. I have to say the messy paint process before the oils has to be my favorite part. Some of these paintings I enjoy at that stage so much I feel like stopping there! Maybe we’ll have to go and…

Saddleseat in Blue

     Day 2 of our 30 paintings for 30 days challenge! I am really enjoying the process here. In fact sometimes I love the painting at various stages! I should create some completed pieces from each stage….hmmm ideas a million!    See what I mean!? How cool does that look with the horse barely…
