The Second Challenge - September 2016

When I finished the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge in January, 2014, I said I'd do it again however, I didn't really think I would. So, here I am again but better prepared. Before this challenge started I picked out 40 photos I thought would make good subjects for painting. That alone got rid of most of the stress that I experienced last time.

January Blizzard - 2016

Three photos taken from my windows during the storm. And no, we did not go out.


My neighbor's front door - notice the finch sheltering on top of the window shutter.

Any port in the storm....
The view of the drift outside my kitchen window.
