30 in 30 Day 21 and A Self Portrait

I cannot believe that I have kept up with this challenge so far. I hope to make it to the end of the month. Today's offering is another attempt at pears. I like this better than any of the previous ones thus far. The shadow is still not so hot, but I am getting better (thanks for the hint, Nancy).

I managed to get an hour in on the treadmill again yesterday, but I put it off until late afternoon. When I walk at that time I need to remember to turn on a light as it is getting dark by the end of the hour. In the hours between breakfast and the treadmill I watched some tennis and did a bit of art. Here is a self portrait that I attempted. The lips aren't right and I think the glasses are too small compared to the head, but there is something of me in it.

Another busy day planned today. I watched a bit of tennis this morning (the hubster taped it from the wee hours) and I have therapy later. I hope to find some time for a bit of art later so I can stay on track for the 30 in 30 challenge.

I hope you are having a great day and that you are finding time for your creativity.



  1. Another beautiful pear combo, it's quite beautiful.

  2. I like these pears the best, too. You did a nice job with the shadows. Well done! Great idea to record those tennis matches so you aren't staying up until all hours of the nite. Now I won't have to call your mom! Hugs, nancy
