Sprouts And Shoots

 4 5/8 x 6 5/8" | acrylic on paper | 8x10" white archival mat 
$125 | free shipping

Greetings and Happy 2014! I always look forward to a fresh start and this year I have so many new ideas to experiment with that I was very happy to commit to do a “30 in 30” (30 paintings in 30 days) challenge with about 400 other artists for the month of January. Artist, Leslie Saeta hosts this challenge on her blog and I thought it might be a good kick in the pants to start off the New Year.

Here’s my plan: I am using this challenge as 30 days of experimentation; 30 days of R&D. All the ideas and concepts, all the new materials, new subjects and styles that I’ve wanted to try out but haven’t had time to play with are coming off the back burner and onto my easel.

Each day in January I will post a new piece—all acrylic on paper, with a white mat and backing in a poly sleeve (like in the photo below). The image size is approx. 4 5/8 x 6 5/8” and the mat is 8x10”. They will be priced at $125 with free US shipping.

Most of all, I hope that you will leave feedback in the comments—I really appreciate hearing from my followers and collectors. Your feedback will help me decide which pieces will become large paintings in the upcoming months.

I’m considering these paintings as “30 Points of Departure”—a place to begin in 2014. Thanks for coming along with me!
