30 Day Challenge Over!-Suzy Pal Powell

Now if I will just keep going!  It has been harder this time than the first. I think because I did mostly watercolors, and they are harder to paint than oil or acrylic. (for me anyway)  I had fun experimenting with the huge brush and ink. This has been good because I have some up with some new ideas, and hopefully I will paint more.  As with last time, I wondered at times WHY did I do this challenge but when it's all said and done, I am glad I did. It pushed me and challenged me.  Actually one of the hardest things for me is finding what I want to paint.

Oh, I love this painting. You might have to pry it from my hands to get it, just kidding. I have only don'e a handful of palette knife paintings, well let's just say you could juggle them that's how many I've done out of all the oil paintings I painted. One, a long time ago sold, another not sure it's residing, and the last but not least is this one. I call it Floatie Attack, the kid wonder, not a care in the world ready to hit the waves with Moxie. Remember those day's when you were a kid with floaties. I was one, my first time to use them was at a pool party and my dad, water guy he is, had me launch off the diving board with floaties, that was cool. I will look forward to making a larger version of this painting in the future it might be a project since it will take quite a bit of paint. By the way the paint on here is thick as butter on bread, so I will definitely send instructions to the buyer to varnish it since it will take some time to properly dry. Go Floaties!! Quick poll, if it's raining at the beach have you ever got in the water, while it's raining?

Vibrant yellows with a rainbow of colors in the 
background.

What a treat to find this little guy taking a break on these elephant ears at the Dallas Arboretum.  The black and orange of this monarch butterfly caught my eye but the curves of the ears lead me right to him.
