30 Paintings in 30 Days - Day 30

Colors of Santa Barbara - 5" x 7" pastel on paper

Another scene inspired by the beauty of Santa Barbara! This is a 5" x 7" pastel on LaCarte pastel paper. This challenge has been such a positive experience for me, first it has helped me start a good habit of painting everyday and second has helped me begin to see a direction I am wanting to move in with my art. I have decided to keep on with the daily paintings or I should say 3-5 days a week. I want to allow a little extra time for me to work on bigger pieces of art too.
I have opened an Etsy Shop where I will be posting my daily paintings for sale, the link is I want to thank Leslie Saeta for bringing us all together for this challenge, this was my third time participating and definitely my most successful. I have enjoyed also seeing what all the other artists have been creating for this challenge, it is amazing all the talent that is out there!


  1. This is wonderful, Congrats on completing the challenge!! Very fulfilling for me!

  2. Those landscape paintings are simply gorgeous! The colors jump off the canvas so beautifully. I also love your technique! You definitely have so much talent in you, Sherri! I’m so glad that you’re actually doing something that you have a deep passion for, and I think that shows in the artworks you create. Thanks for sharing that! More power to you!
