"50 Daily Paintings" Challenge #1 "Berries" by Mary Beth Brath

50 Daily Paintings Challenge

In April of 2011, I started some new goal setting and heavy analyzing of my career in Fine Arts.  One of my plans was to start a daily challenge for myself on September 1st.  The children are back in school at this time and I have always enjoyed "nesting" in the fall. Well, yesterday my day was packed solid from 6am to 9pm...that did include a 30 minute nap.  I love naps. Sometimes my naps are longer.

At 9:30pm I was determined to get in my first daily painting for my challenge. Here are the details...

I will challenge myself to paint 50 mini ATC - ACEO sized paintings in 50 days.

I finished the first in this series around 10:40pm. Here is the result.

  1. A magnificent beginning, Mary Beth - especially that dusky look of the blueberries. Can't wait to see more!

  2. Thank you for the comments! I did painting number 2 very late last night. I will post it as soon as I get a jpeg.
