Day One - 30 Paintings in 30 Days
"Tools of the Trade", Oil, 6" x 12"
Wow. Day one is here. And I simply cannot express how excited I am that there are over 250 artists that have signed up to take the "Thirty Paintings in 30 Days Challenge" with me! I think it is wonderful that we are all doing this together. I know there will be easy and hard days. There will be fun and challenging days. Just don't forget that the only favor I ask is that you enjoy this challenge. I really want us all to have fun! So please share your comments here on my blog and let's make sure we support each other. We have 30 days and were gonna have a blast!
There have been a lot of question about posting your daily paintings on my blog. I will try to make this simple. Every day at 12:01am PST my blog post will appear for the day of that challenge. Today is "Day 1". There will be a place at the end of my post for you to click where you need to upload a photo of your completed painting. You can upload your painting at anytime that day. All you need is a photo of your painting. You do not need a blog to upload your photo. If you don't have a blog then just leave the field blank that asks for a link to the web address of your blog. That's it. It's simple! Also, after you upload your photo a "red X" will appear. This allows you to delete your post if you want to re-do it. Please note, no one else will see this red x.
My theme for my 30 Paintings is "No Boats". I would like to spend this month outside of my comfort zone so I am not going to paint any boats. They are too easy and I have about 1000 photos of other things I really want to paint. It may sound like an odd theme, but I am really excited.
