“Crabby Apple” I painted 99% of this crabby little owl yesterday but I finished the apples today so I wasn’t able to post him until he was complete. This will be my last painting for the 30 in 30 challenge. I know, it’s only the 28th. I have an art festival in Walpole, NH this weekend and will be unable to paint while I’m there. So this is it, but I enjoyed the challenge and have a bunch of little paintings to show for it. I will post all the paintings created this month on t
I love woodpeckers. They are the hard rock lovers of the bird world. Get it? Head Bangers!😂 I’m sorry, I crack myself up and my daughters roll their eyes and ask me to please stop. Oh well. For today we have a wee little Great Spotted Woodpecker

I’ve decided that since the challenge isn’t to create impressive gallery or museum quality paintings, but to paint MORE, then I should post it. So here’s a slightly cartoonish froggy from yesterday. Today’s painting will be backup in case I miss another day. 😀
A little hopper for today’s painting. We have a tiny vernal pond on our property and we always love seeing and hearing them in the spring. Then we watch the eggs develop and hatch. Next thing you know those tiny tadpoles are losing their tails and growing legs. Then it starts all over again next spring! My third grade science fair project was about the frog life cycle and I used to catch them all the time when I was little. I also used to kiss them much to the dismay of my mo
She told the truth! I’m not accustomed to doing fine details with a large finger sized piece of pastel (I usually use pastel pencils) but it came out better than I thought it was going to considering how it looked yesterday! I feel so very lucky to have been taught so many tips and tricks by the amazingly talented Lisa Ober.
