January 2014 Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days Challenge

I am planning to take part in another 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge this January! I AM mad but honestly it is very rewarding! One thing I don't want to repeat this January, is not knowing from day to day what my subjects will be! The early morning panic - what shall I paint - help.......ahhh..... lunchtime - what shall I paint - help.......I have to start painting!!!!! That's the pressure point!
So, instead of inwardly shouting "help" at that point, I'd love your help - NOW!! PLEASE!!!! Send me suggestions that I could do a series of, maybe 3 or 4 variations or different colour variations of the same subject, anything that comes into your head.... obviously your suggestions need to include items I can get my hands on!
I have been suffering alot of shoulder and upper back pain over the last few months - which began in earnest whilst I was hard at work painting for the Whitehouse Gallery Xmas Exhibition. I presumed that my osteoporosis was worsening - I am delighted to say it has not, in fact, my bone density has improved! So much so, I am now just borderline!!!! So the pain is purely muscular and needs physio and pilates, no medication!


  1. This is my first visit to your blog and I enjoyed it very much. From the little I saw I suggest vehicles (love the ones you did) and kitchen stuff. Open a drawer and go for it!
    I got to you from Julie's blog. Fun way to travel around and see different artists.

  2. Thank you Helen! Lovely of you to comment and also to give me suggestions! I actually hadn't thought about motor cars, I have LOADS of photos from the summer! I completely stressed myself out last Jan by not being organised! Please visit again!
