30 in 30, #1

9 x 12
oil on canvas

It's the first week in January and most of us are busy making resolutions for the new year. I've never been very good at this in the past, but fortunately a California palette knife artist has done it for me this year. Leslie Saeta has started a "30 paintings in 30 days" challenge on her website. Needing a little extra push, I jumped at the chance to challenge myself and this is my first entry. I'm hoping to work on a looser style of painting with better color harmony, so let's see how #1 will compare to #30.

Those of you who get an email each time I post, please bear with me through this challenge. I don't want to clutter your email box but hopefully you'll enjoy the challenge along with me and also check out the other entries on Leslie's site.


  1. Good start, Ann! This is going to be fun!

  2. What an wonderful piece, Ann. He looks to be a gentleman cowboy!
