30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge, Day 1

January 2016 begins with another Challenge.  Each time I challenge myself I come away with at least one painting I feel very proud to show.  Sometimes life gets too crazy and I can only finish part of the challenge, but trying is the point.

Technical issues are already making me grind my teeth, so bear with me as I try to get everything smoothed out.

My first painting for the month is a Plein Air artist participating in Paint Annapolis at the City Dock, affectionately known as Ego Alley.  One of my favorite things about Annapolis is seeing all the great boats that dock right in the historic district, along Main Street.  If you've never been here, you should come.


  1. This is such a great idea! And I love this first work!

  2. Thank you for the nice comments. Leslie is so clever for doing the challenge in January, when we're still on a kind of high from the holidays. Such a great way to kick off the new year.
