For those of you who are unaware, a couple of months back I committed to doing a group of 29 small, flower paintings (a couple are of leaves or fruit) to give away for the 29-Day Giving Challenge. Since I am trying to get my hand back into my true passion, my art, I thought that this would not only be an excellent way of getting my name known, but also a way of sharing my artwork with others with no strings attached.....a little paintng give away. Who does not like to get something for free, especially in this economy or also I guess could call it "marketing on a shoe-string".

This little painting project definitely took more time than I anticipated, mostly due to my procrastination. Now that it is over and I look at the small group of 29 watercolor flower paintings, the small paintings look impressive when all put together. Also, watercolor is typically not my media, but they are easy to scan and mail.

Tonight I am scanning the paintings into my computer and I will post images of the group as soon as I get them all merged together. Most of the paintings are from flowers from my garden or the nearby countryside near my home.

The next step is to get them all matted and ready to mail out and the names drawn. There is still plenty of time to get your name in if you have not done so.

If you know of someone who would like a small piece of original artwork or if you yourself would like on
e, please leave a comment and I will add you to the list (I will need you mailing address later). THIS is FREE! Just put your name in the drawing for a painting by leaving a comment.

I know that I promised to write about trying a new painting technique. I have not forgotten. More will be coming on painting radiant color....I just had to get this project completed first!
