she's a bit blurry but i like her that way.


oil pastels on paper


i am enjoying the challenge of a painting a day.

i have approached it by painting first thing in the morning

when the light is best in my studio.   there is a feeling

of accomplishment after i am done.  in september when i 

painted for the 30 paintings challenge i was out of town a lot

and it was a bit stressful.  this is different.  every day i wonder

who is going to show up.

    1. :) I am going for another month in Feb. Then will reevaluate. But a day at a time and it doesn't overwhelm.
