A PAINTING A DAY FOR JULY 2022

A PAINTING A DAY FOR THE MONTH OF JULY 2022

THE CHALLENGE

The act of producing a painting a day ‘no matter what’ focuses creativity, as it provides an element of urgency which as well as encouraging the process of drawing/painting and experimenting, also focuses the mind. at least that’s what I find.  Every painting will not appeal to everyone but that happens with a three month long painting as much as a daily one. It is an opportunity to try something a little different and a painting can take anything from a couple of hours to all day.  I have gone through this process a few times now and have always enjoyed it (well most of the time!!). I have been sharing my progress online and on social media and one person wins a painting of their choice from the 31 days. The rest are then offered for sale.  The paintings are shown below from Day 1 to Day 31.

COMING SOON……….

I will initially offer the products for sale on social media but do keep an eye on my shop as I will be adding some of the paintings, as well as new work, to my website.

Thank you for all your interest, I hope you’ll come back in a weeks time to see the final framed pieces.
