Day 5 (30 in 30 for 30)

"Fire Dog" 8x10 acrylic on canvas

Today's painting was inspired by the field trip T-man and I went on today.  I'm sure you've already guessed, but just in case you haven't - it was a visit to a local fire hall.  We had lots of fun learning about fire safety and T was thrilled to be able to climb in and around the fire trucks.

It was dark by the time I finished it, so I ended up using the old scanner... the colors are a little off, but not too too bad.  Bob is continuing to help calibrate my new equipment (he has been so patient with me). It's turning out to be more work than the painting itself!  He assures me that once we have the settings down, future scanning and printing will be much easier...  I'm excited for that! 

Don't forget to take your own virtual field trip to the Creative Every Day blog to see what treasures Day 5 has to offer!


  1. You are truely amazing. I am so inspired by the fact that you are completing entire paintings everyday. And not just paintings, but good, adorable complete paintings.
