After a long (unintended) break, here is a new post to start the New Year right. I just recently bought a tube of Mars Red and I’m having a lot of fun with it. The background in the rice painting above was painted with it. Alone or with a bit of blue, it’s a gorgeous deep red color which is very opaque. So nice to paint with!

I hope you all enjoyed the holiday season. Happy New Year, my friends!

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:

Oil Portrait Painting by Faith Te

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

Red Chili Pepper - Oil Painting Green Chili Pepper - Oil Painting

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.

My new favorite subject — lollipops!

When I began this blog, my personal goal was to keep it updated with new paintings strictly on a daily basis for at least one year. Well, I’m guilty of not being able to keep that goal, most especially during the past two and a half weeks.

On a positive note though, I sold some of the small paintings and spent those two and a half weeks packing and mailing them as well as finishing a commission. To those who have bought my paintings or commissioned me, thank you so much for your support!

There are only a few more days left before I officially close my 70 Paintings for $70 Each Anniversary Special. It’s only until the 15th of August. After which, prices will go back to the original $100 or $80. Shipping is free anywhere in the world for all paintings. Click on the image below to see the 70 paintings included in the sale:

I can remember when I was just starting out as a daily painter that I hated to do grapes. I thought then that they were just too difficult to paint correctly. Anyway, they are now a favorite subject of mine. I find it really gratifying to see the little berries come to life as I paint the bloom!

One of my most favorite painting of grapes that I have done is the one above. This will be the last grapes painting included in the 365 Daily Paintings so I thought I’d compile all that I have done since the beginning…well, let’s start with the second that I did since the first one was what made me hate painting grapes in the first place!

I love painting marbles. We have them in other colors too, but most of the time, I find myself choosing a blue marble over all the other colors.

Since today is Independence Day in America, I wish to greet all Americans a Happy Fourth of July!

Today is also a very special day for me because, like the title says, this is also my blog’s first anniversary! I should have posted the 365th daily painting around this time, but since I wasn’t able to keep my schedule, it will come a little (or a lot!) later than I expected. We’ll see though. I may have some more to say come the day I post that 365th painting, but for now, I just want to say THANK YOU! once again to all of you who visit my blog, those who enjoy my paintings, those who take time to send me their comments — you are all very special to me! Thank you!
