Day 5 :: SWIMSUITS :: September Daily Paintings

From our days on the beach for Labor Day weekend, I continue to be inspired by sparkles on the water. Of course I'm also inspired by our daughters. The beach is still a place for them to dig and play and I am holding on to that as long as possible. 

Their swimsuits are these awesome colors: bright neon orange and turquoise and vibrant red and purply ultramarine blue. The water struck me as striped in a way. The beach we frequent offers vistas to a lighthouse, distant land, and closer harbors. It really offers all an artist could want to soak in. 

A voice in my head is always critiquing my work. WOW! This voice is LOUD! Sometimes I think that is why social media is a helpful aid. Having support and comments and purchases (!!!) from you all really matters. Thank you!

The acrylic is fun to see, much larger and flat and free and still sparkly. I'm going to revisit this one again when I have more time. I need to elongate an arm (can you tell which one?)

Since it's the Monday holiday, my family is waiting for me to finish these paintings and posts so I can go for a bike ride through the wonderful field in our neighborhood. I'm sure I'll continue to be inspired.

Yesterday the girls and I made homemade marshmallows. I took a bunch of photos of them and now I want to paint them! We shall see.

PRICING NOTE:  I am taking this challenge to heart and taking risks. The work created is a labor of love and learning. For this #30in30 challenge my pieces are experiments and priced accordingly. Each piece is $50 ($10 shipping if you're not local) rather than $125 for my usual gallery-worthy work. Only my pastels will be available at this time. Email to purchase. Of course, thank you! 

Thanks for reading! ~kmw
