This is the first in a series of daily paintings that I am doing. As part of a commitment to doing a painting a day for the next 40 days, I have planned to do these completed studies in preparation for larger pieces. Each day I intend to spend a portion of my painting time with the intent of making one completed painting. The balance of the work day will be in painting a larger piece and or in other art related tasks.

This painting was done from a photo and memory of my trip to Ireland. The steely sky and wet roads marked the area, along with the white stone homes along the way.

What do you think?
