day 7, 30 paintings in 30 days

i started this painting a while ago.  after finishing a smaller

similar painting i wanted a larger painting with brighter colors.

doing a painting a  day does not give much time for a thought 

process.  i like that because it encourages the intuitive decisions.  

i am also taking on a drawing challenge that i saw on instagram

under #cbdrawaday.  i have not kept up a regular drawing

practice.  i start then stop and then remember that i should start 

again.  once i make a commitment, i try to honor that and 

this will give me an incentive to draw for the month of january.  

here are my drawings to date.  i skipped on day which was sneakers

because i wasn't excited about the subject.  i will probably go back and 

give it a whirl.

and i did one more fun project with my 

experimental art group this week.  

paper dolls!

so as you can see, i've been busy!

tell me what you have been doing.

posting with paint party friday and 
30 paintings in 30 days


  1. Love your work especially the first piece, happy PPF, hugs, Valerie


  3. you sure have been busy! Fabulous art projects-I love the colorful dress on the woman in the first piece!

  4. Love your art work, especially the first photo. Happy PPF

  5. Very interesting painting! I like the contrast between the bold colours and the black and white. And those paper dolls are fabulous! You're right that when there's not much time to think, you're creating more intuitively and often these paintings are the most interesting. I really should get back into the habit of creating daily...

  6. I am astounded at what you can do in a after day! Amazing!

  7. You have been busy Irene,
    I did a similar drawing challenge in October. It was called InkTober and I really enjoyed it. I only commit to one or two challenges a year because I know I'll have difficulty keeping to more.
    That first painting is so vibrant and gives a glorious colour boost to any day.
    Happy PPF to you

  8. Interestin projects. My fav are the large gorgeous painting and cute paperdolls.
    Happy weekend ♥

  9. i love your work. it's that simple. plus i get to see some of it sooner on IG. hugs!!

  10. Well, I love that you do not have time to think too much! The results are absolutely wonderful. Bring on intuition! :-)

  11. Wonderful collections of things! I really like that sort of art style. I think my faves are the pitchers and teacups. And chairs. :)

  12. Good for you Irene... you are dabbling in everything!! Love it...all fun pieces and I love the teacups and the pitchers..I have always loved pitchers and have several colour glass ones... very inspirational!

    Hugs Giggles

  13. I have to say I love your studies! Those chairs are adorable. Glad to find you through PPF--I am new around the blog world and glad to make art friends. Happy to say I am a new follower. Dea xo
