It's a new year and hundreds of artists are again participating in the "30 paintings in 30 days challenge". I will admit, last year it was a struggle some days, but I was so proud of myself for "gettin' it done"! It also served to jumpstart me again after a busy Holiday season, when not a lot of painting took place. I will be posting here on my blog as well as on my FB page - Karen Alley Art - as I complete each painting. So.... here is #1, a semi-abstract seascape. I have been working in this style most of the Fall and I want to continue to explore in this direction. Happy New Year to everyone!
