I believe that the discipline of painting every day is a great way to help me improve my work. I find that giving myself a personal challenge helps me meet my daily painting goal. My latest challenge is called a 'Sunflower a Day'. I will paint 100 sunflowers in pastel in 100 days. They will all be 6x6 and I will be experimenting with many techniques and surfaces. Paintings will be available for sale. I invite you to join me and paint along or visit often to see my progress.

Sunflower Painting #3

Here is Sunflower #3. This one is on Wallis Belgian Mist paper using the Jimmy Wright set of Great American pastels. There is no underpainting on this one. One of the things I like to do to add to the challenge is to sometimes choose a limited palette and see what I can come up with. In this case I limited myself to the pastels chosen by Jimmy Wright for his set. I love the vibrant colors in this set!
I am happy to say that Sunflower #1 has sold! All of these sunflowers will be available for $75 each and I will be adding Paypal buttons to each post. I would love for them to have good homes!
