This painting is inspired from another one of my findings from the Rose Bowl swap meet. (I loved playing with blocks like these with my boys when they were younger.) I found these baby blocks at the same booth as the spools of thread.  And once again, I am wondering why I didn't buy more of them.

I do think this painting would make the perfect baby gift. So if you know a mother to be with a baby boy on the way then this might be the perfect gift to give! I will be painting some "pink versions" and can also paint commissions featuring baby initials if wanted!

I am getting a bit sad that this month is going to be over soon. But I have a feeling there will be quite a few of us painting A LOT in the months to come! I am thinking five paintings a week might be my February my goal. Maybe more? How about you?

Day 18 and I am slowing down. Yes I am tired but yes I am still painting. The daily process is so full of information about the whole thing. My confidence is up. And I think 5 a week will be easy to do!

Thank you for this challenge, it has helped me see that I CAN paint more! Choosing a theme - "A to Z", painting a letter of the alphabet each day, helped me in deciding what to paint and made it fun. Looking forward to February, I think I will continue on with a theme, shoot for 3 paintings/week and 5 sketchbook drawings/week. I realized that my paintings would be much stronger if I improve my drawing abilities.
