Happy New Year!

Wow can you believe it? It’s 2014 already … where on earth did 2013 go?

So this is day 1 of the 30 Paintings in 30 Day Challenge being hosted by Leslie Saeta over at her blog Slices of Life.

I am excited to be taking part in the challenge for a number of reasons. Firstly I am a great believer in painting regularly if you want to improve. So the idea of starting the year with a challenge to paint a finished painting every day for 30 days is a great way to develop the discipline to paint every day. Of course I really don’t have much challenge painting everyday as I love it.

The other reason I am excited about the challenge is that it will give you the opportunity to own one of my paintings. Each of the paintings I do will be listed on eBay and you can click the link above to bid. Every auction starts at $0.99 and goes for 10 days … who knows where it will end up.

So this first painting is of the Pub (hotel) near the Grampians in Pomonal called Barneys Bistro Bar

Sue and I spent time camping between Boxing Day and New Years at Lake Fyans which is just near this pub.

My theme for the 30 day challenge is ‘At Home In Australia’ and its all about life in Australia as I see it. Of course spending time at the pub is a big part of that.

This is where we were New Years.

What were you doing?

Note: If you want to follow along each day of the 30 day challenge then enter your email on the right hand side where it says ‘Get Blog Updates’. You will then need to confirm your email. Once you do you will then get an email notification each time I post a new painting to the blog.
