30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge

Oil on Gallery Wrapped Canvas
8" x 8"

So this is the first day of the 30 paintings in 30 days! I actually painted this one yesterday, and today I am painting a sheep. Looks like I am starting off with a farm animal theme. I actually want to paint from my photos from this past year, it just so happens the first 2 were farm animals! This sweet cow was grazing in a pasture as I was driving by so I just pulled over and she posed for me.  I thought the solid white would be really hard and I was a little afraid of it but it went better than I expected. I may paint her again for more practice. Happy New Year everyone! She sold quickly on Facebook yesterday, hooray!

Awe, this little guy (or gal) is so cute. Love his face. Sweet painting! I'm doing animals as my theme as well for the challenge. I can't wait to come back and visit your blog to see more of your paintings! :) Looking forward to your post tomorrow. Happy New Years and have fun with the rest of the challenge!
