The Pond at Ames Crossing

#stradaeasel, Day 30,
The Pond at Ames Crossing
8" x 10" 
Oil on linen panel 
Over the last month I have been involved with a painting challenge 30 painting in 30 days all Plein Air. 
The painters who participated ,shared their paintings to Strada easel on Face Book every day in September are entered into a drawing to win one of 5 new Strada Easels. 
The paintings didnt have to be finished but did need to have a goal for growth as a painter. 
I had several different goals. 
Over the last nine months I haven't painted as much as I would usually.
My first goal was to paint more frequently.
 My second goal was to  identify my subject and achieve my laying in a timely manner so that I could move through the painting more efficiently.
 My third goal was to stay with my original intention what made me want to paint  the painting in the first place. 
I feel I've learned a great deal over month. I hope to win the easel.But  if I don't  I have won as a painter just by doing this process. 
It has help move me forward in my work.
