Less than two weeks to go.  And I’m still behind. In fact, I’m a bit stressed out. At this point I need to finish at least one a day. So … I spent today sketching out all the remaining paintings and started painting a few of them. I feel a little better that I have a plan for each. But I need to work faster. And some of these remaining paintings are going to be simpler and less detailed so that I don’t run out of time.  In the interest of time, I will only share with you the 5 I finished last week (no in-progress shots).  And here they are:

I may not post next week. We’ll see if I find the time. If I don’t, the next post will show all 25 completed paintings. Stay tuned!

I’ve been painting every day for a week now in preparation for  the 20-20 exhibit.  The gallery gave us more time than the last challange (the 50-50) I participated in, but this time I chose to work in oil which requires significantly more drying time.  So instead of completing a painting than starting a new one, I’m working on several at a time. I really like painting this way.

Here’s what I accomplished during week one.  I finished 2 paintings:

Orsay Clock window. This is from a photo I took at the Orsay Museum in Paris.

And this one:

Open_Window_web

And here are 4 that I’m working on:

Hummingbird_progress_web

City_Flat_progress_web

Tahoe_progress_web

Please check back next weekend for week 2 update.  Now back to painting . . .
