6"x6" Oil on Gessoed Panel
with Palette Knife

I have now reached the half-way mark in the 30 in 30 challenge. Right now, it feels a bit like, "Only Day 15?" But when I look back at all of the work that has been done so far, I feel good about what I have accomplished. Today's painting comes from a friend's photograph of the Grand Canyon. What a marvel the Grand Canyon is. To think how it has been carved out for centuries by water is amazing. It is a miracle of patience. It inspires me to have more patience with my painting and the remaining 15 days of this challenge. And so tomorrow I will pick up the palette knife again and paint once more.


  1. I have been working with a palette knife as well, but the smaller canvas sizes have been challenge for me as far as getting good details. Your work is inspiring! Awesom.

    1. Thank you, Roberta. These little sizes are a challenge indeed. Good luck with your 30.
