31 Paintings to Jumpstart the Year

31 Days of Paintings

At the beginning of this year, a challenge was issued to artists around the world—Create a new artwork from life every day for 31 days and post it on social media.

The challenge was created by StradaEasel, an easel design system, to help artists begin the new year with a creative jolt. This year I knew I wanted to join in! On the first day of January, I completed painting #1 and quickly realized how difficult it would be to accomplish the full challenge. Nevertheless, I was determined to see it through!

At the end of the challenge, I had created 31 paintings, a greater appreciation for the simple beauty of everyday objects around our home, and the lessons I learned from the intense and focused study.

Now I'll just have to see if I can talk Adam into joining me for next year's challenge!

Below are all 31 paintings from the challenge. Several pieces are still available! If you spot one that would be perfect on your wall, please email us at We'll let you know if the piece is still available and how to purchase. Prices below include framing.
