The storm warnings have been coming fast and furious. They are calling for everything from ice and wind storms to major flooding on the river below us. We spent the first half of the day getting everything stocked up and battened down. I got a bit of a later start on today's painting but still managed to get it done. Sometimes the time pressure is a good kick in the pants to not linger too much over details.
Every once in a while I like to pull this ship's light bulb out to paint. I found it on the beach the first year we moved here. It still has sea water in it. Today we are over half way through the challenge! I feel like I am just getting warmed up. One of the lovely things that has been happening is the ideas for paintings that keep popping into my head as I work. I have a notebook handy to jot them down. After this month's challenge I will be working out some of the ideas for paintings and working on larger paintings too. I won't be doing a painting a day but I will be painting everyday along with drawing and study. I am looking forward to it!

Hoping the power holds and our community stays safe with the wild weather heading our way starting tomorrow!
