Day 1 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days "Here's Looking at You Kid!" Oil, 6x6, $85
Today begins a new adventure for me.
I've decide to take the plunge to join marketing guru and amazingly talented artist Leslie Saeta in a 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge for the month of January 2013. There are over 260+ artists worldwide participating and I can't wait to see what each new day will bring.
My theme for the 30 painting series is: Connecticut Treasures. Over the past year I've taken so many shots of places, events, people and things all around Connecticut and I'm looking forward to sharing these inspirations with you.
Yesterday my husband Dean and I enjoyed a quiet New Year's day morning at one of our favorite local places. Brooksvale Park in Hamden, CT is about 10 minutes away from our home, just off rt. 10 near the Hamden/Cheshire town line.
We've taken the kids there in the springtime, the fall and even sledding down the fantastic back hill during the winter. The park is nestled between a wonderful forest with walking trails and a paved bike path that was once a railway.
There's a picturesque pond tucked back behind the big red barn and the animal pens. Two ponies, a dozen chickens, rabbits, sheep and goats.
This very friendly billy goat "kid" just climbed right up on the fence and stuck his head through the wires to get a closer look at us.
