2021 – Ordinary January

Thanks to the challenge posed by Linda McClure on Facebook, I rendered an ‘ordinary object’ every day in January and posted them on Facebook with the hashtag ‘ordinaryjanuary’ — those works are gathered here.

Enjoy!

I loved doing the challenge, in part because I had my leg in a cast and couldn’t get outside to do my usual plein air work. A great way to spend a month!
