This is the second video in this series of 12! I'm hoping to continue the video series with more art as I go, but for now just getting these 12 done is proving to be a challenge. I present to you Sledding! One of my favorite winter activities, too bad my son doesn't feel the same. Hoping next winter I can get him to go down a hill or two, he definitely is a cautious one, which I'm entirely ok with!
Ten years ago I participated in a challenge called 30 Day Artist. It is no longer around, but the idea was that you painted 40 paintings in 30 days. It is actually a real challenge as there are some days where two paintings are needed to make it to the goal. I decided in honor of that October, ten long years ago, I would once again make 40 paintings in 30 days. I'm officially done and I'm happy to say I did it, again! :) These paintings were far smaller, and I worked in mostly acrylic and ink, where ten years ago I mostly worked in oil! That was probably way more challenging and put so much more pressure on than the way I did it this year. I also worked pretty small compared to last time. All my paintings are 3"x5", and on a thick watercolor paper.
Here are all forty paintings in one place, I kept this challenge on instagram so it is nice to see them all in one place!
