I will be participating in the Strada Easel Challenge, where I will create 31 paintings from life (no photos!) in the 31 days of January. This will be especially challenging, as I will be in Disneyworld for several days, where I cannot bring a tripod, so I will also be challenging myself to use mediums that I don’t have much experience in, ie Gouache and Watercolor. I will create 31 paintings, each of which will be 10” x 10”(my choice). At the end of the challenge, all my paintings will be posted for sale at a reduced rate of 10 x 10=$100, and I will donate 31% of my proceeds to the National Center for Transgender Equality, a group whose work is so important and meaningful to me.
