I’m so excited for Art Every Day Month this year. Sometimes you just need a kick in the ass to get you working away at the easel on a regular schedule. Even more than that, for me it’s serving as a reminder to share my creations along the way, good, bad, or ugly. I plan to post at least one image every day this month. (Apologies in advance to subscribers who prefer my usual once-every-blue-moon blogging schedule. It will come back soon, I’m sure.)

Today I have a sunset view for you. As I’ve mentioned, I’m obsessed with the view out the window of my new studio. Combine church towers and chimney pots with Scottish sunsets (they are the best in the world, I am starting to think), and I have a hard time looking away. It seems futile to try to capture the drama of a good sunset, but I can’t help wanting to try. We’ll see if I manage to get good at it before I give up.

It’s Art Every Day Month! Towards the end of the month, these new daily paintings will be available to purchase in my Etsy shop. Check out Leah’s blog for more information about Art Every Day Month, or follow the discussion on Twitter with the #aedm2014 hashtag.

    Yeah I think you’re doing pretty good there already. :) I know what you mean though; I was outside trying to draw the sky the other day and the damned thing just WILL NOT SIT STILL.

    Wonderful painting, and your reason for joining this year’s AEDM sounds remarkably familiar :)
