The 60/60/60 Challenge is here! As most of you know, I am in the studio, and it feels amazing to have a space that is dedicated to allowing my creativity flow. I have loved holding classes and have met some wonderful people, and having their energy transfer into the space is quite wonderful. The studio is open by appointment, so please let me know any time you would like to come by!
I am excited for another round of The 60/60/60 Challenge, it was such a positive experience for me last year, and it made this wonderful studio possible. I would again, like to encourage any of you who paint or would like to paint, to challenge yourselves as well during these next two months. You will be surprised at the growth you can make in such a short period of time.
If you are unfamiliar with The 60/60/60 Challenge, it is sixty, sixty minute paintings in sixty days. These will all be small, quick works, painted on flat panel/board, all approximately 60 minutes, give or take. Each painting will be available for purchase- $110 each, unframed, shipping and handling included.
Painting from life is key in artistic development, and as comfortable as I am in this new beautiful space, I need to push myself out into the elements. In comes our little trailer.... I enjoy being able to share with my collectors where your support is going, so this years project is my "Plein-air-mobile"
In 2015, a week before we found out we were to expand our little family, I bought a vintage Landcommander travel trailer with the intent of restoring it and taking it up and down the coast, painting along the way. With the trailer eventually being completed, we can travel together as a family and I can continue to paint during each adventure. So my sales from this years challenge will be poured into "The Plein-air-mobile" because he deserves to be used and now that the studio is complete, it's time to give this little guy some attention so I can get it up and running for this summer. I am ready to be inspired by some new scenery! Carmel is calling me.....
I am so looking forward to being able to take Sutter with us on the road, I can paint while she and her dad explore and take naps on the beach. Heaven, right? I think so.....
