Day 26 Karin’s Chicken

Today’s painting was actually a commission.  Fellow 30 in 30 artist, Karin Naylor, asked me to paint my rendition of one of her paintings.  It’s a beautiful painting of a chicken that is on the masthead of her blog.  Now Karin paints very beautifully in oils–and my work is quite different.  So I didn’t even try to make it look the same.  I did take a cue from her color scheme which was very helpful.  And I enjoyed very much having a model to paint from instead of painting out of thin air as I normally do.  Well, here is the result and I am quite pleased.  Be sure to check out Karin’s blog and see all of her other wonderful paintings.  I’ve said before, and I will say again, the best thing about this challenge is meeting other wonderful artists.  Their support has been fabulous!  Thanks, Karin.

New Year’s Daily Painting Challenge

Tomorrow,  I (and about 400 other artists) will start the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge on Leslie Saeta’s Blog.  This will be my 3rd time participating and it has made all the difference in my “artist” life.  Come along with me and enjoy some fabulous art.  The question still remains though…. What am I going to paint tomorrow?!  Stay tuned!
