Day 43 — Back by popular request are dolphins. I have to admit, the scenes with dolphins swimming in the sea are fun. For this dolphin swim, I’m capturing them as they skim the ocean surface to come out and play. See how they are swimming to the top and racing to their adventure.
Day 42 — I love drum beats. The vibe from these instruments is so amazing to my ears. This got me thinking about drums, especially about Japanese Taiko drummers. The deep rhythms and incredible beats fills my soul. I can feel the vibrations with each tap from the taiko drummer.
Day 41 — Today is a special day; Happy Anniversary to my Mom & Dad! I love you both. I can see how much joy your grandchildren give you and how much you love them. This painting is for you, Mom & Dad! I am so happy to present this painting to you.
Day 40 — Fabulous day today. Day 39 is going to a fabulous friend who shared an awesome story behind it. That just made my day. Then I got to reading a book which spoke of Gandhi’s incredible faith and how he inspired millions of people. That was an inspirational moment for me and had me wanting to paint Gandhi. Capturing his thoughtful grace and light radiance was key for me.
Enjoy “Gandhi’s Gone Green.” I just love the green background that illuminates behind him.
Day 39 — Painting angels has been fun these past three days. So, I am happy to present today’s painting. I love how the angel seems to be sitting upon a planet and with arms gesturing to orchestrate a symphony of actions. This is a great and uplifting piece for me.
Day 38 — Still had images of angels in my head that I wanted to paint. So I continued with the current theme. These angel paintings allowed me to use my palette knife as the tool for creating the image. It’s a very fun process that enables me to create nice grungy strokes. The result is a very textural piece.
Day 37 — Today, I had angels in the brain. I had a particular image with an angel sitting in lotus position, projecting her energy, on my mind. I’m learning that when this happens to go with it and paint. The end result may not be what I first envisioned, and yet the process of painting the image is always fun. Maybe, the universe was having some fun with me also. So, here is “Guiding Angel.”
Day 36 — Today started with so much excitement from our escaped horse. She wanted out of the pasture and there was no stopping her. Through it all, she taught me a great lesson on patience and remaining calm. That inspired me to create a zen-like painting with all the lessons in mind. Patience and calm. Thank you for slowing me down and enjoying the process of painting.
Day 35 — Beautiful sunny day here in Oregon and yet that had me thinking about San Diego and its gorgeous beaches. That inspired me to paint a sunset beach scene. I love the sun rising above the water and its hazy appearance in the atmosphere. Two surfers are out in the water enjoying the sunset and searching out some waves.
Day 34 — Thank you for the continued support of Project 100. I am on day 34. The inspiration keeps on coming. I had a visit today from my (now new &) good friend, who commissioned “Cry of the Phoenix”. We were talking about adventures and coincidentally my painting for today involves adventures. Having adventures in the open sea and visiting distant lands with lush landscapes and friendly natives.
Here is today’s painting, “Sailing Adventure.” Enjoy!
