January Painting-A-Day Challenge

Jan 21st, 2014 | By | Category: Random Thoughts

To kick 2014 off creatively — and to make use of a stack of old vertical window blinds — I decided to set myself the challenge of painting a picture every day for the month of January. I’ve displayed them here at their actual size: three-and-a-half by five inches. If you click on them, you’ll see a much bigger version.

  1. This gives an additional display option beyond Facebook…

  2. You continue to amaze me–with your talent, your creativity, your energy, your enthusiasm, your diligence and your wit. Such a treat to know you and to be exposed to your art (and heart).

  3. Interesting….love the colors..and the humor. And I couldn’t do this if my life depended on it. So go girl! Loved seeing these.

  4. Thank you, Ruth and Diane! I’m enjoying getting paint on my hands and appreciate your kind words.

  5. Really enjoy looking at these Megan, great work. I love the boat and the Four corners paintings and Lezli loves the Stuffed Teddy, [As in who ate all the picnic !] although they are all wonderful !

    Looking forward to more.

    Best wishes David and Lezli.

  6. Great work Megan. I admire your tenacity! Wish you were nearby so we could paint together. I need some inspiration.

  7. Thanks, Dave, Lezli, and Bob! I wish I could paint with you, too, Bob. I could learn a lot.
