Thirty Days!

Is it the end of April already? One thing about being busy, time really flies by. What a difference this Thirty Days compared with the first one in November - I felt like things just improved in leaps and bounds. I guess painting 25 new paintings will do that. I'm kind of sad that I can't just carry on - but it does really mean a schedule adjustment for me, and I need to do some catching up on the big paintings. Won't be long until I do it again though - June is the next month that fits the criteria!

This is 5 x 7 oil on masonite panel, limited palette, prepared with the marble dust and gesso. Another sleepy baby, napping in the sun to wrap up a month of growing, and growing up!

Tomorrow I've got a bit of a surprise - or maybe not a surprise, if you follow me on Twitter. There's going to be a bonus horse painting to celebrate Kentucky Derby week. Trust me, you won't want to miss it! It's going to be fun. So I'll see you tomorrow, right?
