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.
