A few more One Hour Oil paintings

I think most of these are pretty self explanatory. The first is #14 of my one hour paintings, a white carnation, #15- is tulips from Easter, #16- a pencil, #17- a pink rose, #18- a film canister, and last #19 is scissor handles. Although I am calling these One Hour works, some I didn't work that long on.

I have yet to go out and do any paintings "en plein air". My goal was one a month, on my own, without a group. I still think that I may be ale to get a few in, but not the way I had originally planned, one a month.

Also, my one hour paintings are still coming, but not as often as I had wanted. I let other things become more important. I had forgotten I had three other obligation's with shows and auction's, and I am not good at multi-tasking.

My last goal of researching, using and accumulating 100 addresses for my mailing lists is on track. I have done research on how others deal with mailing lists. I have the software program- Microsoft Access, and I will integrate my Outlook address book and have them set up in groups accordingly. I have more to learn with Access, but am feeling confident about this one goal.

All in all, I have not made painting my priority. I have been too easily side-tracked.
