September painting challenge - Day 1

Prov 1:9
Day 1, complete! I have 'officially' joined a 30 paintings in 30 days challenge, along with over 300 other artists, and am excited to get started! I am even more excited to see what I will have learned at the end of this month!

I have a plan for where I hope to head with my paintings, but today's work is only the beginning! This painting is based on Proverbs 1:9. The 31 chapters of the Biblical book of Proverbs seemed to me to be a great point of inspiration, combining my beginner's love of painting with my life long love of Scripture. 

The bright greens and yellows and the rich "Quinacridone/Nickel Azo Gold" suggest life and vitality. The iridescent copper is  a great touch of surprise and luxury.
