Thirty Paintings in 30 Days - Day Eight

Pin It
Tropical Breeze
Oil, 6" x 6"

We made it through the first week! Yay! It's Day Eight and I am only slightly sleep deprived so that's a good thing, right? 

January is the perfect time to take on a Challenge like this. It's the best time to start new habits for the year and painting everyday is one I really want to continue. The only problem I am having is I have a lot of other new things for the year I would like to do too. This week I started a new financial reporting system for my art business, a new organizational system in my office and I am redoing two of my websites. Plus I am working on my two books again. 

So that's really why I am sleep deprived. 

Plus, January is "health month" in our house so every January I schedule every possible dr. appt that needs to happen for the year. Currently I have five dr. appts on my calendar. So, if you are behind on a yearly physical, mammogram, teeth cleaning or dermatology appt, schedule it now! 

Today's painting was inspired from my collection of photos from Hawaii. I could paint from my photos from the Hawaiian islands for the next ten years. I really do have that many photos! I love the darker palette in this painting.

I start teaching next week and still have some openings in a few of my workshop. Feel free to email me if you are interested!

Love your painting Leslie. Love the way you suggested the breeze and the knife work on the palms.
