The November issue of American Art Collector magazine has an article regarding “Small Works and Miniatures”. A group which I am proud to be a member of, Daily Painter Originals, has been featured within that article and my lemon painting above is one of the art shown.

I hope you will check out the magazine. Our short article starts on page 84.

And by the way, you can subscribe to the Daily Painter Originals mailing list if you’d like to receive in your inbox all the new artwork that are posted to the site everyday. There are 30 of us in the group so there is a good variety of styles and subject matter!

Avocado Halves - 365 Daily Paintings

Daily Painting #365 – Avocado Halves

Oil painting on hardboard
Approximately 6 x 8 inches — 15 x 20 cm
SOLD

Yay! Here it is! The 365th daily painting! I have to mention that I actually completed this painting quite a while ago but only managed to post it today as there were some rough roads during the latter part of this journey. Blogging about the paintings consistently once per day was easy enough at the start but personal issues came in during the last several months which stretched out the postings. If some of you waited regularly for the paintings, I apologize for this.

The good news though is that I did manage to complete all 365 small paintings in 365 days, with the exception of one day when I worked on this bigger non-daily painting instead:

I made up for that when I painted these two chilis in one day though:

I am really excited to be able to show all of you this milestone (for me). I can’t say how grateful I am to everyone who purchased my paintings — thank you so much for your support! And not least, I am also thankful to those of you who took the time to comment and patiently shared this journey with me. For those who commented during the past several months, I have not been able to reply to most of you personally but I want you all to know just how much I appreciate your words of encouragement. Here’s a virtual hug to everyone!

Just for fun, here is the 365th side by side with the very first daily painting I did:

Here is a picture showing the painting on the easel where I did virtually all of the “dailies”:

And last, here are those avocados one more time. Behind me you can see a preview of what’s coming up on this blog:

Two of my fellow members at Daily Painter Originals, Leslie Saeta and Dreama Tolle Perry, are holding a fundraiser to help artist Annie Salness who recently had a stroke. She is recovering and the funds raised from the “Art Walk for Annie” campaign will help pay her medical expenses. I am donating the proceeds from the sale of this painting to the fund. If you would like to know more about “Art Walk for Annie” or how you can help her, please visit this website that Leslie has put together.

By the way, this is the next to last painting before the 365th.

Lemon on Wood - Dramatic Oil Painting

Daily Painting #361 – Lemon on Wood
(Click image for larger version)

Oil painting on hardboard
Approximately 5 x 7 inches — 13 x 18 cm

I’m not sure why but I had a very difficult time trying to get the colors to match the original painting and some parts are still a bit off. This is now #361 — getting really close to the “finish line”!
