Here’s another brown egg painting. It has a similar “monochrome” color scheme as the last one. I had a very difficult time trying to get the colors on the screen to match the original. The shadow part of the egg is a little more magenta in reality. You will see more of these brown eggs in the future as I really enjoy painting them. I have a whole dozen tray of them bought specially for painting!

Also, I am pleased to announce that I am now a featured artist on Daily Paintworks! I was invited by David Marine (founder of the site and husband of fab daily painter Carol Marine) a couple of days ago and I’m really thrilled and honored to be part of this group! If you haven’t seen it yet, DailyPaintworks.com also has auctions that are exclusively for original art. Check it out — as far as I know, it’s the first of its kind!

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”:
