30 Day Painting Challenge

I’ve challenged myself to complete 30 paintings in 30 days. I’m not sure if I’m going to make it or not, but I started out with this fundraiser at http://www.gofundme.com/awdh8c

I’m up to 10 completed paintings. I know I could have more finished, but I ended up stopping and not being happy with the ones I did complete. It’s the perfectionist in me.

So far I’ve sold two of these already, which is great.

So far this is what I have:

Weekly Photo Challenge: Perspective

A few years ago I started taking photos of trash washed up from our waterways. These are some interesting things I found from the Indian River. They’re almost beautiful in their own way.

I love diversity in food… so I stuck with this for the diversity topic.

Cee’s Black & White Challenge: 50 Years or Older

I am really enjoying black and white photography again, but our weather in Florida (on my days off) has been pretty terrible to do much outside. These were taken at the monthly car show in New Smyrna Beach.

Travel theme: Ancient

I was never a fan of history until I became an adult. Now I love exploring ancient ruins, old houses, and anything that tells an interesting story – and feeling the energies of these often mysterious discoveries.
