My last post and painting for Leslie Saeta’s painting challenge is a nativity commission. This painting challenge has inspired me to paint with the palette knife, paint familiar subjects and some I have never attempted before AND paint everyday…which I have not grown tired of.
Thank you for following my blog and for all of your texts, messages and comments, they motivate and inspire me.

Palette knife painting is one of my loves, china cups and tea are also a favorite. Put them together and you have “Prissy”. Thanks to my hubby for naming this painting.

Well I’ve done it, I joined a 30 day painting challenge with artist Leslie Saeta along with over 300 other artists. I either am crazy or I will be by the end of January.
I do aspire to become a better painter and I am loving the palette knife right now, so be on the lookout for some chunky-style paintings. Surely painting 30 paintings in 30 days will enhance my painting skills.
This little painting is 4″x4″ on a gallery wrapped canvas and does not need framing. I have named her “Nippy” and she can be yours for $50 as soon as she dries.
I have made a list of subjects that I would like to paint but you know me, I would love to hear what YOU would like to see me paint. Please leave a comment for me if you have suggestions. Happy New Year everyone!!!

The palette knife lends itself to a thicker impasto style painting and I love the fresh juicy paint look. Artist Leslie Saeta is posting a challenge on her blog to help artists show their work and to practice their skills, it’s called thirty paintings in thirty days. I painted this pear as a practice piece. Anyway, I’m thinking about joining this challenge and just wanted your thoughts, do you think I can paint thirty paintings in thirty days? Your comments and encouragement are most welcome, leave me a comment below. Thanks!
