30 Day Art Challenge 2015

Back in 2012, I did a 30 Day Art Challenge in which I made 30 acrylic paintings in 30 days.  I made these paintings with my tiny baby boy strapped to my chest in a carrier or sling.  These 30 Paintings were presented at an exhibit in Seattle for a short period of time.  One actually sold, which is surprising since they were a little hurried being a new mom only a couple months out of a long NICU stay and working full time too!  
Anyways, I decided to do another 30 Day Art Challenge (without the intention of putting them in an exhibit), but this time with photography.  Some days have several photographs.  So enjoy!

Day 30 (This is not a photographic work of art, but marks a special moment. My son has always had global delays {meaning several different delays}, and this is his first time writing.  He got my attention to show me that he wrote "15", then "l", then attempted "2", but I bumped him. He has always loved books, which is working in his favor, since he is already starting to read and write at only 3 years old, despite all of those delays.  I am a very proud Mama!)

Day 31 (Little Darth Vader for Halloween.  He is intensely obsessed with robots, so he prefers Darth over the Jedis ha)

So there you have it.... 30 Days of Art
