Day Two for 30 in 30

The is my Day Two submission for the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge!  This Challenge is sponsored by Leslie Saeta and has artists from all over the world submitting paintings on a daily basis.  I find this Challenge to be a good January, get with it, project!  I started painting before the holiday start date so that I would have a few paintings ready to go, but I will be working daily to have new postings as we go.  That is the goal, painting daily to push my skills.

And, I am trying something new to me! The paintings are done with watercolor (my usual medium) but are painted on 4" x 4" canvas that is 1 3/8" deep.  I am using Daniel Smith's Watercolor Ground. to coat the canvas, let that dry for 24 hours, and then I paint.  When I finish I seal the watercolor so that it is ready to hang, or sit nicely on a book shelf!  During the holidays, I wrapped the canvas with red ribbon, and they could be used as an original ornament.  Very fun!
