 water mixable oils  6 x 6 inches

Well, my challenge to myself to paint 30 oil paintings in 30 days is happening.  Though I've painted something everyday this week, I'm going to call today "Day One" as far as my postings go.  I couldn't find the USB cord for my camera, so wasn't able to post any photos until now.  And at least 2 of the paintings done so far aren't finished, and maybe won't be  I do want to be able to post something everyday and doing it this way will take off some of the pressure.

This painting, done on Monday was from one of my old photos of Reid Glacier. I observed a couple of artists using water mixable oils at the artist retreat in Juneau last week, and they didn't use media... only water.  I had previously used Winsor and Newtons linseed oil made for the water mixable oils and this week have not.  It has made it much simpler.

I'd love to have anyone join me painting, and will appreciate any encouragement.
