Strada Easel Challenge Day 2

1/2/19 Chinese Water Chestnut. 4″x6″ Oil on panel

Strada Easel Challenge Day 1

1/1/19 Orang Malu, 4″x6″ Oil on panel

Today is the first day of the Strada Easel Challenge. Create a painting, from life, daily, for the month of January. Finish the Challenge and you are entered into a drawing to win a Strada Easel. This is a twice yearly event.

The subject of my painting is a Balinese sculpture called an “Orang Malu” which translates to Shamed Man. I have also heard it called a Weeping Buddha. When I asked one of the vendors what the meaning was he was quite direct – “Who cares? People keep buying them, so we keep making them”. Still, pretty cool sculpture.

Since my daughter hasn’t started back to school yet, it will be still lifes until next week. Then, hopefully, I can get some (very, very cold) Plein Air painting done.

When we moved to Gallup, NM in late May, I was busy with my 4 year old daughter for the summer. When I got my studio room into some order, I decided to work on some small (very, very small) paintings I could do in one sitting. I was (and still am) mesmerized by the turquoise blue skies we are so fortunate to have. Sure, it’s dry, rather cold now for winter, but I will take it over damp wet and overcast cloudy. We get that sometimes too, but the blue sky ratio is much higher.

These tiny oil paintings are 1.75″x2.75″, approx 1/16″ thick paper panel. They are $20 each, USPS first class mail shipping included. Buy 2 or more I will upgrade shipping to USPS priority.

Each painting is based on something I experienced the day it was created. All paintings are date stamped on the back, varnished on the front. They are all posted on my FB Page, Dana Aldis Studio – https://www.facebook.com/DanaAldisStudio/

To purchase, contact me.

Thanks for looking!

I just love Bunchy’s hairdo. Reminds me a bit of Zoolander combined with some surfer chic. All paintings are available for purchase, 30% of each sale will go to GOA. (one lump, at the end of September) And FREE Domestic USA Shipping.
