Day #1

5 x 7 oil on gallery wrapped canvas

 On my recent trip to Italy I was fortunate to see some wonderful vintage boats in the harbors and in the artwork of masters.  This is #1 of (hopefully)  30 works I will start painting this month.

 I am excited to be on this journey with artists from around the world.. I am a little late getting started, but as Leslie says there are no rules as long as we are painting!  If you are interested in purchasing any of the posts from this challenge, they will each be $95, plus $10 shipping.  Please  email your request to me at

 I will be painting daily along with hundreds of talented artists.  You may check out Leslie Saeta's website, if you'd like to know more about this challenge:

As a rule, I am a deliberate painter.  I paint in layers letting the canvas dry in between sessions.  For this challenge, I will need to finish the painting in one sitting.  So I will be forced to paint more intuitively, having less time for details.  I also want to try some new techniques such as pointillism and painting with a palette knife.

My husband photographs and helps name my paintings.  However, I have never asked him to name 30 paintings before!    Please help us name these small works by entering your suggestions in the comment box below.
