Day 24: 30 Paintings in 30 Days!

Image size: 11" z 15" Watercolor, Charcoal, and Collage
I'm torn about painting landscapes or painting birds. I love the process of painting birds, so I've been switching back and forth. I've also been really wanting to do a total abstract painting lately, but I'm committed to finishing this 30 day challenge. I'm finding it really hard to do this challenge this year, since I'm in Florida. We've had lots of company, I taught a workshop one week, AND I got sick for a week. Now, all that is behind me, but the nice weather keeps calling my name. I'm loving my times at the beach or the pool. It was easy to paint in MN when it was cold and snowing outside. This is teaching me to be very organized and try to paint ahead. I should do this more often.
