This is day 7 of the 30/30 challenge. I fell behind over the holiday weekend and during open studios. Yesterday I got a little caught up but no time to post. So here finally is painting # 3. This is one of my abstract paintings "Essays on the Sea". This one is #S817. Click on the picture and that will take you to the Etsy link to read more about it.

Day 2 Orne's Candy Shop
Today's painting turned out to be very difficult. This is totally out of my wheel house. So this is a WIP (work in progress). The idea of the challenge is to post whatever you do on a particular day so in keeping with that challenge I have posted this. It needs a lot more work. Tomorrow's the day. This hopefully will turn out. It is an image of Orne's Candy Shop in Boothbay Harbor, Maine. Click on the image to read more.

I have not been able to get back to this blog since I moved my studio - over a year ago. I have joined the new September 30/30 Worldwide painting challenge and will hope to get this blog updated. I may not finish 30 paintings in 30 days but the attempt will be worth the try. Even one is better than none.
Day 1 Annabelle's
I hurried off to the studio this morning to begin a new series of paintings that I have had in mind for some time. "Summer Treats". I have been photographing ice cream shops all summer for this series. So this is day 1 of the challenge and this is Annabelle's. 4" x 4" x 1" acrylic on gallery wrap canvas. This is a very new theme for me so these really are preliminary paintings for larger ones later on.
Annabelle's is available in my Etsy shop where you will find additional information about this particular painting. Etsy Shop
I will be explaining more about the challenge in future posts but if you are intereted here is the link to the page that is posted daily with paintings from all over the world. I'm number 262 today.

I will be moving into my new studio at Western Ave during the summer months and will not be posting new paintings in the DPW auction during this time. There are many paintings listed in my gallery on Daily Paintworks, and quite a few are available, so be sure to check out what is there.
I will resume posting paintings in the auction in the fall.

Maine Coast 1
I have just returned from a painting retreat at Pemaquid Point in Maine. We had 3 beautiful days, warm and sunny, and one very rainy day. This painting is from day 2, the rocks at Pemaquid. When we arrived at this location on Saturday the fog was so thick you could see nothing beyond the shore line. Gradually the fog lifted. The top half of this painting is fog not water. I painted this with very thick Golden open acrylics on a 6 x 6 panel on which I had put a textured surface of gesso. It has a lot of texture. I will add more paintings to this series in the studio. This piece is available in the Daily Paintworks Auction. To bid click on the link below.
