New Paintings!

For this spring break I challenged myself to complete 5 oil paintings and enter an illustration contest.

As far as oil paintings go I finished one and am working on the second picture. The finished one is called “Mountain Town Café” and is about 3’x4′ in size. Number two is not titled yet.

I ran out of time for the contest, but I did manage to complete an illustration in the style and tone of the project. The contest is every 2 years, so that gives me plenty of time to come up with detailed concept sketches, characters and of course the final illustrations.

So I guess you don’t always end up doing what you set out for, but it’s still good to try to touch the sky isn’t it? You get more done than if you hadn’t tried.

What kind of goals do you set up for yourselves? Leave a comment if you like, I’d be interested to hear about them!
