These five images are part of the challenge of 30 paintings in 30 days that I have begun with the gifts given to me at Christmas, new Terry Ludwig pastels, from my grand kids.

I will post daily from now until the series is complete then less so afterwards, most likely, as I will be preparing for an upcoming show in Asheville NC.

Part of the challenge I face is to pick up my oils again after not painting with them for a year now.
 I have become besotted by pastels and I think we suit each other. But I do have a commission to complete in oil and no doubt will keep that up as well.
I have begun a 36 x 48 canvas in oil and am working on that slowly.

Landscapes and skycapes are where my heart and hand lies at this moment. So until tomorrow.....
