30 Paintings in 30 Days: Day 1

Hello folks.  It seems I haven't posted for over a year! Well, that is changing right now :-)

I have joined Leslie Saeta's challenge to paint 30 paintings in 30 days! About 250 painters have joined in this challenge, so it's going to be exciting - and a lot of hard work!

Here's my first challenge painting - no title yet -  my first try in oils with a knife. I usually use a knife in my acrylic abstracts - where everything dries FAST - so this was a new experience. Must plan more in oils.  Looking forward to tomorrow's painting!


  1. This is great, Terry! I'm too chicken to try palette knife painting, but I'll have to add it to my list of things to try! Great start! :)

    1. Thanks Lynn - I'm always looking for different techniques - saw your challenge post - beautiful!

  2. Hats off to you, Terry, for venturing into this exciting challenge! I'll be looking for your posts.

  3. Thanks Ester - it's a little scary, but very exciting at the same time.

  4. Wonderful painting for the challenge! I am looking forward to seeing more!

  5. Thanks Claire - I'm excited to paint the next one tomorrow :-)
