Thirty Paintings in 30 Days - Day One

Welcome to the 30 in 30 Challenge. Day one is here! And Happy New Year!

There are 360 artists signed up to join the "January Thirty Paintings in 30 Days Challenge" ! I cannot believe there are so many of you who are doing this Challenge. That's awesome! We will have fun and remember, its wonderful if you can complete all 30 paintings this month but it's also ok if you miss a few. Life gets in the way sometimes and if that happens, please don't sweat it. I really want us all to have fun! Just remember to share your comments here on my blog and let's all support each other. 

There have been a lot of question about posting your daily paintings on my blog. The process is pretty simple as every day at midnight I will add a blog post here for the next day of the 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. Be sure to add a link to the page on your blog or website where the painting is listed for sale. Please note, you do not need a blog or website to upload your photo. If you don't have a blog or website 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.

If you are having a problem uploading your photo, here is a link that shows you how to upload a photo on inlinkz.  By uploading a photo of your painting and adding a link there is a very good chance a lot of people will see your art! I also encourage you to post your painting to your own blog and to Facebook. People will get excited about an artist painting 30 paintings for 30 days in a row. So don't be shy to let everyone know that you are doing this Challenge!

I will be at the Rose Parade and Rose Bowl Game all day so I thought a Stanford painting might be a good way to kick off the new year. It has sold, so that's good too. If you are looking for a team to cheer for the Rose Bowl, feel free to cheer the Cardinal! 

Check out my new remodel blog for our new beach house in Ventura, Ca. I am now teaching workshops at the beach. Come stay and paint with me! I have workshops scheduled in the next twelve months in South Pasadena, Ventura Beach, Newport Beach, Charlotte, NC, and Atlanta, Ga. Click here for more information!
