Beginning bright and early January 1st, 2020, Dottie T. Leatherwood and Marc R. Hanson will start a very involved, joint painting project. Every day this January, no matter what, we will be heading outside to paint. We decided that we wanted to take on a personal painting challenge, one that would get us outside for an extended period to paint together, to paint where we live in order to share our love for it with others.

So... if you're inclined, please follow along as we take our paints, brushes and easels out onto the marshes, beaches and into the fields surrounding our home of Tybee Island and Savannah, GA, this January 2020! Each of us will be painting at least three 9"x12" field studies a day, every day in January…that's a total of 186 paintings! Chances are there will be more paintings a day than that, but we've set 3 as our minimal goal. We'll re-cap our adventures each day, including images of the paintings, and post it all here on our Salt Marsh Studio blog. Photos of the daily painting sessions and videos will be posted on our Salt Marsh Studio Instagram and Facebook accounts throughout each day.  Every evening the paintings will be posted for sale on our Salt Marsh Studio website

All of the paintings will be for sale for on a collection page on our website for $410.00 ($400.00 +plus $10.00 shipping and handling), but we will be holding them for our show, more to come on that, shipping them on or before March 1, 2020.

wow good luck !!

I knew Marc does this regularly but I never was able to follow him on this, ... I'll guess with such a bloke nearby you're going to get so inspired you'll manage.

Again good luck!!

Groetjes aan Marc.

Hi René... Thank you! We're excited to begin this. And it will be wonderful to be painting all month with Dottie. She'll push me along for sure. Thanks for adding to your blog too. I just added your blog to my old personal blog too. Not sure why it wasn't on there before? It is now. Happy New Year!
