Wild Things #9 - Great Horned Owl

9x12" Wild Things #9
http://artbynv.com/galleries/daily-paintings/wild-things-9-9x12.html

I am working on a large series of paintings depicting wildlife I have encountered here in Alberta, and while living in the SouthWest. Some of the paintings for the 30 in 30 challenge are studies for larger pieces.

I cannot believe the summer is over and today is the last day before the school starts! Kids are excited though - they love their school and their friends. My youngest is starting Kindergarten, and I hope I can keep myself together when I drop them off at the school tomorrow. I cried every time I did this before, so it will be interesting to see if I have matured somewhat in the mean time.

30 in 30 challenge

I am looking forward to this challenge - it was a blast to do roosters in January. This time I will paint different wild things the entire month. I have most of the supports ready to go. All of the paintings in this challenge will be less than a square foot, and will be priced $200 or less.

This time I have not prepared as well as the last time. I did not pick a theme and will just go as I please. I am frantically preparing my boards today so I have at least a few small supports ready for the challenge. It is amazing how days can go by quickly and I do not have a minute to pick up my palette knives and brushes and paint.

Here is a collage of all the cock paintings I did in January to remind me how awesome it is to do this every day!
