Small Practice Paintings

A while back, I committed to painting "100 small practice paintings".  Not one a day like some very dedicated painters do (and I can only hope I might one day be a very dedicated painter) but just 100 of these tiny paintings, in all, ever.  This is a good approach for me -- not too much pressure,  keeping it open ended and the like.  Suits my personality because, really, I'm not a serious painter.

I paint for the fun of it.  And, sometimes, I paint fun things.  I'm on number 21 (and, yes, I'm counting) so I thought I'd post a few every once in a while starting with my first....

No. 1
8x6 - Oil on Canvas

No. 2
8x6 - Oil on Masonite

No. 3
6x9 - Oil on Masonite

No. 4
10x4 - Oil on Masonite
One day, when I get my online shop up and running, I plan to sell some of my paintings there.

I'm partying at the following Link Up parties:
