Ladies of the Forest

Day 30 of the 30 Day Painting Challenge and I have one more painting left to go. It’s been a hard slog I think! Last night, I went back to my markers (it felt so good!) and made a set of pretty forest ladies for a trading partner who is sending me three pretty antlered ladies in return. I also painted a sitting nude for one of my challenge pieces, this one on canvas board with a book page over top. I find that gets rid of the super annoying grooves in canvas. I should just buy flat masonite or birch board from here on in. The other painting (#29!) is a watercolor of a pretty red head with flowers in her hair. These two are both in my new (well old but recently re-opened) Etsy store.

I am super thankful for the one day respite on January 31st before I start in on the 29 Faces challenge for February. Anyone else in on that one? Can’t wait to start blog hopping for it!

Happy PPF!

    Yay for completing the challenge to paint every day! I like your antlered ladies! I would consider them paintings, myself. I not much of a truest with my definition of painting. You're painting with pen. 🙂
    Your lovely lady on the book page is gorgeous, by the way. Happy PPF!

    Such interesting ladies of the forest!
    Love the cool minimalist forest.
    You don't seem to have any trouble with getting a painting to work even if you don't like it so much.

    Totally gorgeous and I am so drawn to the collection of antlered ladies. So similar but also very distinct, with the gorgeous colors tying them together. As for the nude, forget about it! Holy cow, totally amazing. (Geez, I need some new adjectives!)

    I love your antlered ladies, Sal! Such a pretty set to display all together! And that nude is calling my name. Loudly.

    I joined 29 Faces, by the way. 😀
