Day 6 went o.k., I did paint, will post that one tomorrow. Still have to write a note. Kind of a long day with celebrating Faith's birthday and having an all-day party. Thanks for taking a look. This would be a nice touch for a child's room or any small room. If interested, please contact me at

Red Barn, Landscape In Oil by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse

Day 3 of CHALLENGE 58 produced this little 6"x8" landscape and one thank you note. This is not as easy as I thought it would be...funny how that happens. Anyway I love having an excuse for "have to paint today" and will try to keep it up. Thanks for taking a look! $58

Sunflower in Jar, Contemporary Floral Oil Painting by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse

Day 2....Still haven't written my daily thank-you note, but know who it's going to be written to, and I have at least another hour before I crash! This one's 11"x14" Oil on Canvas Panel. Fresh sunflowers are the best!

Teapot, Cup and Flowers/Day 1; 11"x14", Oil

Day 1 of CHALLENGE 58; whew! I was so nervous I would fail my first day of this project. Anyway, I got a couple of thank you notes in the mail this morning - gratitude feels really good. Then this afternoon I took a very roughly sketched in demo that I'd done yesterday for my painting class (the boys don't like to watch, they want to dig in to the paint, and I can't blame them, so it was about a 5 minute demo)...and tried to finish it. $58
