"Happy Halloween" is 7 x 5 inches and inspired by a tree on High School Road...thank you Marina for mentioning it!
Can it be? It's day 30.
Do I need to stop? Of course not!
But I will need to take it back a notch.
In the meantime a reflection:
TOP 5 OBSERVATIONS about the 30 in 30 project
1. I learned early on that in order to open myself to inspiration, I needed to let go of a backup plan.
2. There IS a new painting to be found each day.
3. Once I established the habit, it actually felt liberating to embrace the uncertainty of the act of creation daily.
4. Social media projects have a life of their own and I really enjoyed connecting with so many of you!
5. It is REALLY cool when someone feels like they “won” your painting!
The elegant scoliid wasp here is a neighbor who I met at Morris Arboretum a few weeks ago. He is a good pollinator.
Is it day 29 already?!?
"Morris Neighbor" is 5 x 7 inches.
I dedicate this painting to Ketam, our neighbor's dog, who sadly passed away this summer and who used to travel through that opening under and to the right of this tree along the interior of her electric fence.
Also, the style is definitely inspired by an elementary school student's intriguing artwork based on the work of Monet that I saw at the Abington School Board meeting last night. Nice work!
"Autum Hydrangea in Rain" is 5 x 7 inches.
Cozy Buddha here in his cave is more centered than me today, on this full moon. Anyone else feeling a little off? I'm wrapping myself in fuzzy blankets as soon as I'm done with this day!
"Cozy Buddha" is 7 x 5 inches.
We share a driveway with our neighbor. It's a lovely connection that is binding life-long bonds for us and our children. Here is a part of it... with Ray's vintage camper in back. "Driveway" is 7 x 5 inches.
Who says you can't compose artwork while driving? While the light does happen to be green, I assure you that the car was still when I took this picture. Safety first!
I am happy to ride through this intersection every day and feel almost an umbilical cord pull toward the house I lived in until I was 7, which is actually out of this frame to the right.
"Washington Ln" is 7 x 5 inches.
This foliage stopped me in my tracks during my run this morning. "Forrest Ave" is 7 x 5 inches.
My brother gave us this statue of St. Francis several years ago and I wish the patron saint of ecology always looked after my parsley plant as well as this (or I could just water it more regularly...).
"Ecology" is 7 x 5 inches.
This Skipper's proboscis feeds on nectar like my hold on life today as I begin to draft my will (a task that has been long overdue!).
"Life Line" is 5 x 5 inches.
