Day 29 30 in 30, Baby Texas Longhorn cow painting

Oh boy.. my painting end of month count is embarrassing..  Sure didn't make 30 paintings but I did paint most days till this week when a cold hit the family.. so I guess my last one for the month.   I actually completed this a few days ago but hadn't posted here yet with all the chaos in the house.

 Painted from my friend Deb @ Faith Love Hope Ranch in Oregon.. one of her baby Texas Longhorns

Day 13... in the 30 in 30 painting challenge

wow I'm behind on this challenge!  This is my 3rd painting.  I'm going for all 30 paintings even if it takes me 60 or 90 days. I've been painting everyday but haven't had a lot of time this past week and have gotten so behind.

This painting is #3 and also a pet memorial commission and gift.   Was great to be part of such a nice pet commission gift.  My friend Michelle wanted to gift this to her friend after she lost her sweet Pittbull mix, Layla girl.     A surprise gift she received today so now I can post it online,     I'm offering (with her permission) prints of this dog in my Amazon and Etsy shop.

Day 5 , 30 in 30. (painting #2), Collie dog portrait

I have been painting every single day and feel behind on the challenge.  I guess the goal is to paint everyday and that is accomplished.   I will be picking up the pace and hope to get as many paintings as I possibly can this month AND paint every single day!  (an accomplishment in itself!)

Anyway.. Posting this one on day 5 of the challenge.    This was painted from a photo I took of my dog Gumbo.   He was sitting down outside with the forest in the background.    Painted this a bit looser and it was so fun.  I know that face so well he was so very easy for me to paint!  I love this dog!

Now on to painting #3 but I can't post it.. it's a gift and can't post till she has it in hand.. so i'll be posting #4 next :)

Painting #1 in 30 paintings in 30 days. Baby Longhorn cows

I finished this one yesterday on the 2nd and I painted large for a daily challenge, so I'll be playing catch up here.   Have #2 on the easel (my dog) and that is almost done.  Painting like mad to have my paintings in line with the day of the month, but here I go!  I love a good challenge!

This is painted from a friend of my Deb Sprague at Faith Hope Love Ranch in Oregon.   2 of her baby longhorns!  Thank you Deb!

Original Fox painting on eBay, Nibblefest art contest ends Tuesday night!

My entry for Nibblefest Art Contest (NFAC) on eBay ends tomorrow night.  Theme is Creatures of the Night.

I LOVE foxes..  I have painted them before after having a family of fox live under our driveway in 2010 that spurred some fox paintings, so when this theme came along painting a fox was my first thought.

All entries start at 99cents (contest rules, no reserve!) and end on the 27th each month. You can always find my entries on eBay each month by searching "NFAC Sims"
