Today is Day 10 of my 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge. I'm 1/3 of the way there! This painting is from a photo I took this fall. I don't often paint trees, and this challenge has got me experimenting with a variety of things I wouldn't normally do. I have thousands of photos that I've taken over the years that I've never gone back and looked at. I would guess that's true of many artists. I prefer painting from life, but there's enough stress with this challenge in trying to do a painting a day that I think it's best not to attempt to paint in sub-zero temperatures. I do enjoy painting in winter, and one day soon I may get brave.
