Do you remember Cleo? I painted two versions of her last month and reconnected with a favorite exercise from the past - that of working on multiple pieces, different in scale and composition, at the same time.
Another Dog a Day fan loved my idea so much, they forwarded it to Daily Paintworks leader (and one of my favorite artists and mentors) Carol Marine. Carol, in turn, invited me to lead a weekly challenge on the website.
What spectacular company to be in, and what an honor to be included. After I picked myself up off the floor and my blood pressure had stabilized, I (hopefully) graciously accepted her invite. Thanks again, Carol.
So how does a challenge work? Well, it's like a mini painting lesson, designed to teach or practice a specific skill. The challenges are open to the public (you do NOT have to be an artist member in order to play) and a great way to explore some new ideas.
Wanna accept the challenge? Then visit the site and grab your supplies!
Thanks, as always, for supporting and sharing my art with your friends and family,
PS You gotta visit Daily Paintworks, too, if you haven't already. Lotsa eye candy there!!

Mona's Big News
No more kibble for this tabby - she's now demanding nothing but dolphin safe tuna.
If you missed it, Mona's gone Hollywood - she's the muse for this week's Daily Paintworks Challenge. Check the site out (but give the artists a bit of time to create their work!) and see how many artists Mona will inspire over the coming months.
Daily Paintworks is an amazing website - part daily painter directory part indispensable artist resource. Even if you are NOT a daily painter, there are plenty of tools that benefit studio operations, so take a peek and see if there's anything that will help you.
