"Day 19 of 30"

Please forgive me for not visiting your Blog but for as much as I am enjoying this challenge it's taking up a lot more time than I reckoned and I feel constantly under pressure. Today I did five paintings, including this one and none of them turned out as I'd hoped. Thank you for stopping by, your visit is very much appreciated! :)


  1. Don't worry about visiting blogs... Your on a roll and even though some of them don't turn out the way we like it's not a waste. Love your geraniums.
    Same thing happened to me today..
    I've been wanting to paint the old shoes, and the quick sketch turned out better than the planned piece.. I just cannot paint larger paintings.. I have a mental block about that. LOL I think I'm destined to paint itsy bitsy. !!!!

  2. You are doing so well Ingrid, I suppose they don't have to be big works to feel that you are still up for the challenge so hang in there

  3. I know how you feel Ingrid - it's tough keeping up but at the same time I'm enjoying it - I'm dedicating the weekend to the family though and will have to catch up in a couple of days or do some very quick sketches (even quicker than the ones I've been doing lol!) And no need to apologise for not visiting blogs, it's not always easy to do that too and we all do it as and when we can and are able to. As much as I love browsing blogs it's very time consuming to leave comments (especially when there's a captcha thingy!) Keep up the good work and stop being so hard on yourself - I bet the other 4 paintings were worthy of showing too xx

  4. I admire your gumption. I could not do a challenge like this. Your geraniums are beautiful.


I'm afraid I have had to introduce word verification as I had 96 spammer posts when I returned from holiday. I hope after a short while I can try again with no word verification, I do hope you understand ... thank you Ingrid.
