Mini Painting Challenge-Day 3

I am doing a quick 5 day painting challenge of creating a painting in 20 minutes.  Here is day 3.  I have to say that a lot of the first minutes of this painting was sitting there trying to get started.  You see I was a bit intimidated by all the other paintings I have been seeing.  They have been incredible.  Which always makes me doubt myself.

But I have been told I have a very strong “will”.  So I kept looking through my inspiration photos, trying to find something that caught my eye.  And I finally found it!

As a lot of you know I love painting the American flag, and I love porches.  So this one piqued my interest.  I started painting, and I have to be honest, I lost track of time.  So it may be closer to 30 minutes.

It was all done with one brush.  I love how it came out, and I have to say I surprised myself!!  I am glad I did not give up, and honestly there was an additional lesson learned with this painting.  It was not to give up, and I am thankful I did not!

This was a home I passed in the center of Attleboro, Massachusetts.  I take lots of pics of things that catch my eye while out and about.

Thanks to Mary Gilkerson for hosting this challenge. She paints beautiful paintings full of color that I always admire.Photo Jan 20, 11 48 06 AM
