Today I just realized that I only have fifteen of these panels. I have used five of them and I have fifteen days that need panels beyond what I have. I will have to order more.
Speaking of ordering, all of the challenge paintings will be on the my DailyPaintworks gallery site and are available to purchase. I will be donating a percentage of the proceeds to one or more animal rescue groups I have in mind, including our local United Paws of Tillamook. I will get that up on the auction site and determine the percentage soon.
Weather and my back permitting, I will be heading out to paint en plein air again tomorrow. I am thinking that I would like to try painting directly onto a panel instead of the loose hemp canvas that I currently have. That means I will essentially be selling one of my painting references. I have mixed feelings about that. It would save me precious time to combine the wave study and challenge in one painting. I also tend to generally like the plein air paintings better than the studio ones. I would need to finish the paintings in the studio. There are a few drawbacks as well so I believe I will need to sleep on it. I would at least like to try it to see how well it would work.
I will stop this post here. I am babbling, a sure sign that I need sleep!
