Yesterday I took a class in Boulder from Micah Condon. During the class we discussed ways to use the internet as a marketing tool. Besides all the great information he shared, one of the fun things about the class was having the opportunity to meet other Colorado blogger/artists: Saundra Lane Galloway, Kim Conrad, Karla Nolan, and Carol Nelson. Carol is about to complete her project, 100 portraits in 100 Days. If you haven't seen her blog, go look at all the pieces. Anyway, this got me thinking about all of the garden paintings I do, and, I've decided to create my own 100 project. I'm going to paint 100 garden related pieces during the next several months. I'm not going to limit myself to 100 days, like other bloggers have done, but will continue the project through our short growing season. This will allow me to continue to: work on larger pieces, one of my goals this past year; travel and not post for several days at a time; and, not worry when one of our hail storms prevents me from getting out to do a plein air piece.
Colorado Springs sits at an elevation of 6,000 feet. As a general rule our last frost date is usually Mother's Day, and our first fall frost can be any time after Labor Day. So, right now in my yard, the daffodils are just blooming. I took the photo below this morning. Those of you who follow my blog know that in the summer I paint a lot of florals, many of flowers in my yard. In the blog I'll talk about the perils of high altitude gardening and plein air painting. But, I think it will develop though the season.
And, since I get to make up my own rules, I decided that the pansies from Wednesdays post will be # 1/100 since they're from my first time this year out w/ my plein air group, Garden Artists.
