My son's painting project

Shane is a full-time freelance illustrator. He does primarily book covers As most of his work is done on the computer he misses painting. On January 1 he started a project, committing to do a painting every day of 2019. So far, he has not missed a day. If that wasn't enough, he coerced his wife, Marla, into painting with him for the month of May, both painting the same subject.  Marla is an artist with fabric but had never painted before this month. She's turned out some delightful pieces. They're a mix of still life, New Zealand and American landscapes, wildlife and figurative.

Today is the last day of painting for her but Shane will continue with one painting a day for the rest of the year. His project is called, 'Just Keep Painting'. You can see (and purchase) his work here.  Shane's little oils are all 6" x 8" or thereabouts, unframed. They sell for US $100 each plus shipping. Marla's are US $50 each. Shane, Marla and their three kids also live in New Zealand.
