So here I am, at the start of my 100 painting project. It seems appropriate that the first painting is a sunny path, as I begin this painting journey. This piece started life as an acrylic painting. When I covered the acrylic with oil paint, it came to life. And that's when I knew that I wanted to do a whole lot more painting in oil.

Many of these paintings will be available for sale in my Etsy shop. Because honestly, what am I going to do with 100 paintings taking up precious space in my little house? And if I can send them off to new homes then I have that much more room to make more paintings.

This is a lovely sketch. The trees and their shadows look so real and natural. I can just picture myself taking a pleasant walk down this path.

Lovely painting, and so nice to see sun and grass - I'm surrounded by deep snow so this is actually making me feel warm looking at it. Good luck with the 99 others, can't wait to see them!
