palm tree in oil on canvas, small, 5" x 5"

i decided at the last moment (not on january 1, but on january 3) to join a 30 paintings in 30 days challenge inspired by my session at Studio 30 painting in oils from a live model yesterday. it was fun, and i can certainly use the practice! so this little palm tree is a quick study done on canvas.

this is the portrait i painted in the 3 hour session yesterday with a model on a 12" x 12" panel with oil paint. i will work on it further to get it to where i feel happier with the result! i know doing a painting every day (which was my initial inspiration to start this art blog a few years ago) will bring much joy, practice, and improvement to my art.

thanks for viewing! comments are always welcome! 

peace, blessings, and all best in the new year!
