Day 8, 30 Day Challenge

I learned a lot the first week of this challenge.
1.  It is fun to offer a give away and get people to look at my blog.
2. I should not have gotten so enthusiastic about palm trees in the very beginning.  I still have about 7 starts that need to be finished.  But I did take some cottage photos today that I can use for reference this week.
3. It is easy to do a small painting everyday when I am working in the pottery studio, but when I am focusing on a larger piece it is hard to break away from that to do a smaller piece.
4.  I have wonderful friends in blog land and on Facebook.
I will give away another painting next Sunday, here's the info:
I am having a give-away!

Here is how it works.  Leave a comment on my post and you will be entered to win.  I am going to give away one painting a week for the duration of the 30 Day Challenge, (the month of September, 2013). If you comment daily on my posts then you can be entered up to 7 times to win.  The winner will have their choice of any unsold painting of the week. 

Those of you who subscribe by e-mail to this blog can either reply to the e-mail, or comment and you will be entered.

Please note this drawing is going to be casual.  I am not hiring any fancy auditing company to do the selection.  It is going to be a plain old pieces of paper in a bowl thing.

If you are the winner your painting will be shipped to you after it has dried, which can take one to two weeks with oils.
