Save The Bees and 30in30 Collage

Save the Bees - 4x4x2" Acrylic on Gallery Canvas


I told you yesterday it would be simple. But I like how it turned out. Even though it's so little and it's kind of a speed painting, it's among my favorites for January. And really, we do need to put efforts into saving the bees. Saving the bees is saving us!

And, like everyone else doing the 30 in 30 January Challenge, I've made a collage for my project.


I'm happy I accomplished my goal of completing a painting every single day in January. I'm also a little sad it's over. It will be nice, though, to stop and take a breath. Oh wait....I have to finish scanning, sealing, putting wire hangers on, pricing, and taking them to the gallery to hang. Yikes! I wish being an artist was only about painting. How nice that would be! Haha!

Thanks for all of the encouragement and sweet comments during this project everyone! You guys kept me going on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and in the comments of this blog.

Happy weekend,

Day 14 of 30 paintings in 30 days - Rapala Fishing Lure

4x4x1" Acrylic on Wooden Cradled Board

The painting with the inspiration.

And side by side with his new buddy from day 13.

I'm happy enough with how these two turned out, but I'm also glad to have them behind me. Teeny details aren't for me. They stress me out!! And who needs that?!

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 13 of 30 in 30 - Fishing Lure

Day 13 - Fishing Lure - 4x4x1" Acrylic on Wooden Cradled Board

I won't be doing another one this small with details like this. I forgot how much I hated doing detail work. I don't have the brushes for it and I don't want to buy them since I don't enjoy it. I probably won't do a companion to this little fishing lure. Life is short; Do what you enjoy. Except taxes. You have to do those.

Thanks for stopping by!
