Hello everyone! It's January 10th, 2015 and today is Day 10 of my 30 Painting's in 30 Days Painting Challenge!

My theme for this 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge is "Every and Anything" and over the next 20 days I will be painting every and anything from landscapes, to pet portraits; from people portraits, to still lifes; and so forth! (To learn more about why I chose this theme click HERE.)

Oh my goodness! We are exactly one-third of the way there! We've already completed ten days in the challenge and now there is just 20 more to go! Phew! I hope that I can keep up. I'm hoping that I won't miss any days in this challenge, as I did with the last one.

Today's painting is a still life of two jugs, flowers and a lemon, done using pastels. I love the colors in this one: the browns, the green the yellows, the small "pops" of red from the flowers. I also like the composition, which I modified a bit from it's original photo reference.

Tomorrow, for Day 11's 30 in 30, I will be unveiling another "Every and Anything"  painting. Until then, I hope to see you back on the Blog of SamDoum Art!

'Til later fellow art lovers! Take care, and God bless!
