Challenge Over

I finished the last drawings and paintings from the "Every Day in May Challenge". I haven't been able to upload them here. I apologize for clumping so many together.  I did not complete just a few of them. It has been a wonderful experience which I hope to repeat next year.


DAY 23. An interesting detail of a building.

DAY 24. Keys

Day 25. An apron, or something you wear during messy activities.

Day 27. Something furry or fuzzy.

Day 28. A yard ornament. 

Day 29. A faucet.

Day 30. A bird-feeder or bird house.

Day 31. Eggs.

Day 14. Something I use everyday.

Day 15. Something I could throw away.


If you braved it to the end, I can't thank you enough for your continued support!
Have a wonderful weekend!

  6. Good to see I am not the only one with a hankering for gothic gargoyles. Though I keep photographing but have not drawn or painted one yet. You may have just inspired me. lol Love the sketches. Well done on getting to the end.

  13. You have the eye for an interesting subject. I really enjoyed seeing your choices and how well you did them. You make the mundane beautiful.

  14. Wow! I can really see how a daily subject to paint would develop some valuable artistic 'muscles', in training the eye and mind to see potential paintings each day, and to bring them into being that very same day. I admire you for doing that! My favorites are the eggs and the faucet. They're all wonderful!

I hope everyone's New Year is off to a great start!

I started this painting last year and set it aside for a while.  I worked from a cell phone image I took while preparing breakfast.

My favorite way to eat avocado is on toast with a poached egg, I sketched it after Christmas. It keeps me full until lunch time.
