Day 14 of the 31 day challenge for January.

I really didn’t feel like painting today. It was a struggle to get myself into the studio. I started wondering if I was the last of the artists staggering into the studio to paint because I said I would.

That train of thought led me to thinking about a scene I remember near the Murray River. It was low lying flood plain and most of the trees had been cleared for livestock. Just two gums remained. The last of the gums.

My goal is to try out new ideas and different compositions. Experiment, play and have fun. By painting daily of course it will improve my skills as well.

I will sell most of these sketches on Ebay for no reserve auctions. Some will be used as ideas for larger works, and some may become episodes of Learn To Paint TV.
