Daily painting in Maine - small works, flowers

I have been very remiss and lazy about posting on my blog.  I'm thinking the blog needs a face lift or a new purpose. I am going to  take a look at that over the next few weeks. Facebook seems to be my go to place lately for quick and easy photos of my latest work, but the blog  is a place to explain more.   I definitely need to do a better job and more with this blog .

 While I am thinking ( procrastinating really) and arguing with myself over what to do about  the blog, here are a few of the small works  I have been working on lately.

I am going to try  and enter these into  a small works show. Flowers always do well in those type of shows. I think the small format  makes the work more intimate. A strong  composition is always critical, perhaps even more so in small works.

Daily Painting Maine - last day

Day 30 of the 30 day painting challenge.

 I need to touch up a few things. The dots in the sky will actually  end  up being some sea birds flying south. I didn't  complete 30  paintings, but I came close and I'm pleased with the results. This was a busy month. This last painting is a fitting tribute to the end of summer and the end of the 30 day challenge. Thanks to Leslie Saeta for hosting .

I missed a few days of posting in the 30 day challenge. However, I was doing  some daily painting.... just a different kind of painting.
Here's my quick daily to get me back on track.
