30 In 30 Challenge - Painting #2

This painting is called, "Sunlit Mist".  It is painting #2 of the 30 IN 30 Challenge.  I painted this in my studio from reference photos that I took in June.  The view for this painting was a marsh in Bass Harbor near Bar Harbor, Maine.  I was inspired by the sun gently tinting the mist that surrounded the mountain.

This painting will be added to my Etsy shop. Because it is an oil painting it will take a few weeks to dry. Just click this link and you can see more information about the painting. Thank you for reading this post!

30 IN 30 Challenge

I've joined Leslie Saeta's Thirty Paintings in 30 Days challenge for January.  Leslie says that 810 artists from 23 countries will be painting 30 paintings in 30 days!

My goal is to complete this challenge by painting small landscapes that include some imagery of water.  Here is my painting for January 1, 2015.  It is called, "Island in the Marsh". 6"x 6" Oil on canvas.  This is one of my favorite places to paint.  It is hidden away behind a church in Harpswell, Maine.  I was inspired by the golden grasses of September.

I will be adding some of my challenge paintings to my Etsy Shop.  Because I am using oil paint the paintings will take about three weeks to dry.  If interested you can check my Etsy Shop and read the "ready to ship" info for each painting. Thank you for reading this post!
