30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge

Something New

8X8 Oil on Canvas
Today's painting is a departure! 
 I was trying to paint and kept being interrupted, and my painting was going south fast!  So in a moment of wipe-it, or try something new I took a chance!  
What did I learn today?  I learned about form.  If you paint where the light is striking the object, you are half way there!
During this challenge I tried different subjects, colors, styles and used both the brush and the palette knife.   I didn't post or paint everyday of the challenge.  And they weren't ALL winners because the trash can ate two of them!  
But there are now 16 paintings that I can look back on and say "I'm glad I tried new things!"
