In my post on January 14th, I announced that I had accepted
TOMORROW IS DAY ONE!
If you have been following my blog, you are aware that this comes on the heels of
In the 5-Day Challenge, I decided to do five 5" x 7" pastels of my favorite scene
in New Mexico, the Taos Gorge Overlook.
I will be continuing with the same theme throughout the 30 in 30 Challenge
but will be working in oils and slightly larger, 6" x 8". The challenge I am presenting myself is to work in a different color palette each day AND to limit each painting to ONE HOUR.
Some will be strictly palette knife paintings, some with only brushes and some with a combination of the two. I will also be trying a variety of painting surfaces, linen, cotton, gessoed board, some will be bare, some toned and some will be previously textured.
I am looking forward to the challenge of creating 30 different oil paintings and to what I will learn from this challenge. At the end of the challenge, I will post a collage of all 30 paintings.
You are more than welcome to post comments or simply follow along.
Wish me luck!

Here are all five paintings done in Mary Gilkerson's 5-Day Painting Challenge. All participants had between 20-30 minutes to complete each painting. The suggested size was 5" x 7" or 6" x 8". I elected to do mine in a series of 5" x 7" pastels featuring one of my all-time favorite places on earth, the Taos Gorge Overlook. Here are all five together. I'd love to hear if you have a favorite. Thanks again for coming along on this short but wonderful journey.
