The Boot Strap 30 Paintings / 30 Days - #6

I am participating in a painting challenge to jump-start my painting efforts for 2013
The challenge has been offered by talented artist Leslie Saeta. Link here to join in or see paintings of other artists. I am glad to be participating in this challenge and look forward to seeing the paintings of other participants as well. 
My theme is centered on my travels this winter in my 1996 29' Winnebago RV. Improving and diversifying my painting subjects has been one of the main goals of my travels. My goals for this challenge are to pick up speed in my painting, and be freer in my use of color and brushwork.
"The Boot Strap"
4" x 5" Oil on stretched canvas
I have been visiting my brother and wife in Arizona during my travels this winter.
This boot belongs to my brother. He does leather work and made these straps with silver conchas and a silver buckle. I thought it would work well for one of my small challenge paintings.
If you see a painting you like, or would like me to do a commission for you please contact me privately by my email ( for pricing and details. 
Thanks for visiting my blog!


  1. Good for you, Sunny! The 30/30 challenge will be very meaningful. I, sadly,just couldn't round up the gumption to undertake it at this time.
    That's a great boot painting! :)

  2. Ditto what Deafranger commented! ;-)


Thanks for your kind comments!
