We're at the starting gate!

And we're off and running!   Today my son and I are officially starting our  75 for $75 project.

If you missed the initial post on this, I'll explain it again.

I've been intrigued by the painting a day concept, started by Duane Keiser and perfected by  artists such as Carol Marine.  But I already have loads of other commitments to 8 galleries and 5 annual shows so I don't want a long-term obligation.    So I'm doing a 30-day painting a day project that will help me meet my goal of becoming proficient at quick, painterly bird studies.

My son, Shane Rebenschied, full time freelance illustrator, read about my project and asked if he could join in (ok - perhaps there was a little coercing from his mother).  Shane does book covers for the major publishers, but as the majority of his work is digital, he misses painting for painting's sake.

We've made the commitment to paint at least one 5" x 7" each a day from May 15th to June 15th.   The results will be posted here daily, then put on my website here.  Or you can go to, click on PAINTINGS on the top menu, then scroll down to 75 for $75. If you click on the link, you'll see we've already posted 15 paintings.

We've worked ahead to make up for days during the coming month when we have other obligations.  It won't be difficult for me as all I do is paint, but Shane has his full time illustration work PLUS three kiddos, ages 10, 8, and 17 months.  So I'll excuse him if he doesn't get a piece done every day.    My goal is to paint as many as FOUR a day.

To purchase a painting, go to 75 for $75, and click on the BUY NOW button where purchases can be made through Paypal.

These are today's two paintings:

Shane Rebenschied - "Curious Three"
5" x 7" oil on panel, unframed

Adele Earnshaw - "Red-winged Blackbird"
5" x 7" oil on panel, unframed

Purchased paintings will be shipped via the post office, as soon as they're dry - which may take a week or more.  
If you would like to purchase more than one, email me before purchasing.  I'll tweak the BUY NOW button so that you only pay shipping for one.
