30 Paintings in 30 Days - Day 7 - Pink Rose

My painting for Day 7 of the "30 Paintings in 30 Days" challenge is a pink rose. It was done from a photo I took in Manhattan Beach this past summer when I was there for a wedding. The painting is 5 x 5 inches. I don't know if I would be able to keep up if I did larger paintings...maybe I'll try next year. Right now this doesn't seem so daunting.

Here is a link to the other paintings that are being posted today:

Here is another small painting I did before the year was over. This is a corner of a restaurant in Stony Brook with some of the Christmas decorations still around.


  1. Nice work for day 7 Joan! Love the Christmas painting too - really pretty!
