"TIME'S UP!" #28

 "Time's Up"/ Original oil painting/8"X8"
      Yet another painting challenge from colleague, Carol Marine,daily painter.  
The idea here was to set a timer, divide your canvas into 4 or more sections with a 
10- minute time limit on each section and then stop (Yes, I did. No cheating, I promise). The real challenge was deciding what to paint. With a myriad of still life objects at hand, and a timer in the other hand, the proverbial light bulb went off: 
"Why not paint the timer?"
This turned out to be lots of fun--my brushstrokes got more fluid and colors more precise.
Thanks to my wonderful husband, David, for the concise title! 
Enjoy,  Eileen McCoy- Kansas City Artist
