Welcome to my Art Blog, “Letters from Adele….with brush and keyboard”. Two of my favorite things are painting and writing. So here goes! Thanks for joining me.
An artist I admire and call “my mentor” has issued a challenge to all her fellow artist friends: Complete one painting per day for every day of the month of September. That’s 30 paintings in 30 days! Wow! I gave it a lot of thought, but finally realized this challenge was exactly what I need at this time. I find sketching (pencil, charcoal,or ink) all very easy to keep loose and light. My hope is by challenging myself to paint rapidly and daily I will develop the same freedom with my oils.
My Challenge theme is “Vacationing in the Greek Isles”. My reference will be photos taken by our eldest Granddaughter and her husband on their recent vacation in Rhodes.
Here’s my plan: At the end of each week I’ll post my 7 paintings of the week….right here on this blog. I will also post them on a “30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge” page of my website, http://www.artbyadelebower.com.
Meanwhile, the painting above, “Gate at Tharri Monastery-Rhodes” is posted. I can’t honestly call it part of the Challenge because I painted it last week.
See you soon,
