Love the Process update

I began a Love the Process challenge 13 days ago. It is a challenge to create art everyday, but love creating, not the product. It has been an incredibly fun and freeing challenge so far. It is my goal to make sure that continues, and hopefully my skills will improve along the way too!

Here are some of the pieces I have created.

I am posting my artwork everyday at

Not much time to paint over the weekend, but I was able to get my hands dirty today!

Added some contrast to my birds

Coming in low

I got to redo the landscape from last week. Did it much larger. Not my favorite. On my list to do it one more time!

Approaching storm


Then I played with a face! I’ve been looking at this gorgeous face in this position a lot the last few months and needed to paint it!
