  8. For some reason, this painting really projects an essence of the Southwest - perhaps the vibrant colors give a hint of old New Mexico. I love it! I'm eager to go
    back through your blog posts to see what you've been doing these past several months. I had hit a dry spot and just couldn't pick up a brush for awhile. The 30 day challenge seemed like a good time to recharge, and visiting your blog today feels like connecting with an old friend. Glad to see your work, Julie - it's really an inspiration and a breath of fresh air.

  10. Your pears are like gems, beautiful and sparkly! I am doing the challenge without a theme as well. When I even tried limited themes ( 3 paintings at a time) I became bored. Looking forward to seeing your work!

  11. Gorgeous! Your paintings always confirm in my heart & head just why I love color! It's that rush of "happy" when I look at them! (and keep looking at them! I never get bored!!) I'm with on the 30 in 30 challenge....no theme for me other than to follow my daily bliss - it will show me the way!

  14. This is lovely Julie. Great colour in those pears.
    I don't know if you've had time to visit my blog, but I'm allowing all the 30 in 30 artists to post their work on my blog too. There is also voting and I'm giving prizes. I would love to see your work there.

  15. Pears never looked so fret-free!!

    One day I will learn to paint faster than I am at the moment.I have the input right: I paint most days...it's the output. Bloody big canvases aren't helping :0)

    Gorgeous painting though, Julie ... as ever!
