8x8" oil on canvas $125
Wow! Two in a row! I'm on a roll! Tim and I always used to say that we needed adult supervision to get things done on time and just look at me! Day two and I'm still on board! Adult supervision indeed!
This photographed a lot darker than it is but I guess it's okay. Not going out in the snow to snap another, this will have to do.
I can feel myself itching to splash paint on the canvas with abandon...however clearly that's not happening just yet. It will be interesting to see if I do get to that point as time goes by. I'm feeling like I have a lot to do, just got a free-lance illustration job (Tim's wheelhouse, not mine..help!) and there's commissions and donation work to do but it feels good to have my time consumed with projects, because believe me if there's a chance for me to put off today....you know the rest.
I've been telling my friend Brenda that I've wanted to get back to smaller canvases and daily painting and BOO-YA!! The 30-day challenge appears! Be careful what you wish for.
Kidding. Actually I'm feeling really grown up right now. Up early, wrote my thank yous, took care of the peripherals and got into the studio by 10 AM! Off to get more canvases ready and add a layer to tomorrow's. That egg photo shoot I did last year is really coming in handy. I dearly love what goes on with the yolks, color wise, and painting the white googlies on top is for me like icing on a cake. I loves me some protein!
Thank you so much for the comments and support! How can I fail with such assistance? And there's so many great paintings being submitted! I need time to look at them all! And I'm meeting new colleagues in the process. This is a wonderful concept, I'm so glad to be a part of it! Been watching from the side lines, telling myself I'm not a joiner. Guess I was wrong.
Gunkie, you have taken on a BIG one, and you are doing fabulously!!! I am fairly sure I could not do a 30-day challenge, not without 30 sheets of watercolor paper lined up with drawing on them, ready to paint. GO, SUZ, GO!!!ReplyDelete
Awesome painting! You go girl! I am trying the 30 in 30 too. I have not done so well keeping up in the past, but trying my hardest this time. Glad you are joining in! Happy New Year!ReplyDelete
This has been beautifully painted, well done. Eggs are so hard!ReplyDelete
So many of my favorite artist/bloggers have joined the 30 days, 30 paintings challenge! That means more great artwork for me to see :) Gorgeous shine on these two yolks with that gluey look they have :)ReplyDelete
Wonderful yolks, translucent whites. But my favorite part: the purple shine on the shells...ReplyDelete
OMG I'm getting tired reading about all you have on your plate! But if anyone can do it, you can. Eggs over easy peasy...next. :)ReplyDelete
I love deadlines though, they are the one surefire thing that gets my ass in gear and makes me work hard. I think we all have a bit of the procrastinator in us if left to our own devices.
How can it be? How is it possible that you painted these eggs?ReplyDelete
They are too perfect--just like eggs!
Amazing- that is what you are!
Beautifully done! Margaret McWethyReplyDelete
These are terrific! The deep orange and the wet shine, wow!ReplyDelete
Wonderful work, difficult subject... EGGcellent!ReplyDelete
This painting absolutely glows! Well done.ReplyDelete
Wonderful piece. Love the richness of the yolks. KatrinaReplyDelete
Oooooooo, this is exciting... 30 paintings in 30 days! I've done this twice in the past and it is such a great exercise... the growth and learning that occurs in a relatively short period of time is astounding! So looking forward to what you produce. Have fun! The eggs are delightful!ReplyDelete
I'm planning on doing an egg drawing later this month - but it will not get near as great as this! Amazing that this is done in one day!
really beautiful....that color! wow!ReplyDelete
So glad you started this project as a joiner. I love seeing your paintings, Suz. Another great job here. I remember gagging at raw eggs in the past...Still not a favorite thing...LOLReplyDelete
You're on a roll for sure! (Or an English Muffin… sounds good about now) And I totally get the infatuation with the 'googlies'! I love seeing my friends comment on your blog - Regula!!!!!! (From Swizterland!) Tweedles! Sherry! It's a party on your blog! xoxo Busy days for you - you can do it, Suz!ReplyDelete
You are amazing! Your skillz blow my mind!!!ReplyDelete
MAN! This painting EXUDES viscous warmth! Looking forward to a month of Berry's ...and beyond!ReplyDelete
Boo Yah is right! Wow - love this one and doesn't this activity get us moving everyday? I LOVE it. Movin and a groovin. Paint on!ReplyDelete
Wow, Suz, first and foremost Happy Healthy New Year. I am delighted to see you painting and what brilliant work, as usual. You are an inspiration to all of us, it's always a treat to visit. I must put you on my side bar so that I can see your work.ReplyDelete
All the best to you,
love the colors in this!!ReplyDelete
Awesome!! Gotta love those yolks...and love the title too:)ReplyDelete
Wow! I just dropped in to see what you've been doing and am so inspired and impressed. What gorgeous work; this one especially knocks my socks off. Cuddling yokes are like sunshine, I guess.ReplyDelete
Wow, I'm going to look at each of these! Wonderful pleasure.ReplyDelete
