September begins with a challenge at hand. I am going to participate in a painting challenge with Leslie Saeta and others where we will paint 30 paintings in 30 days during the month of September. Yes- that’s a painting a day- Oh My! Well, I will do my best…

But, I am asking for your help as well- no you don’t have to do any painting – I would love for you to send me your photos of doors as reference photos. You know how I love my doorways and I thought this would be a great theme for my 30 in 30 challenge. So where have you travelled this summer? Do you have a great doorway photo? Or what about your home doorway? Would you love to see it posted here on my blog?  This will be fun… so help a girl out!!

      There has always been something special about doorways for me, perhaps the welcoming in to the owners story. Can’t wait for your photo, thanks!!

      Deanna- are you doing the Challenge also?? Well, no need to have to have a theme, I thought it would just get me started.

    hello Sue – I was delighted to find your beautiful work and visited the work on your website too. I love your blue doorway. Here in New Mexico many windows and doors are traditionally blue and I really enjoy painting them. You will have to come visit.
    thanks for visiting my blog

      It was my pleasure Julie- you have such lovely work! I am trying to visit a few people each day during Leslie’s challenge and boy would I love to visit New Mexico in person. It is on my bucket list! I hear the colors there are fantastic.

    Sue,
    I posted two pictures on my FB page for you. They were taken in Savannah about 6 years ago. They aren’t great but maybe will provide some inspiration.

      Catherine, I would love to use them, Savannah is one of my favorite places but I can’t find them. Can you email them to suegrilli@me.com? Thanks so much!

    Oh what a delicious delightful challenge! And what a gorgeous painting you posted. I most definitely want to step through that doorway. I love doorways as well, and so look forward to seeing other paintings of yours in this series. I’ll poke around in my photos and see if I have to share.
