January studio messes

I have been following a girl on INSTAGRAM and she did the 30 day art challenge.  I was very impressed with all her work.  She painted an oil painting a day and they were all great renditions of apples, and other round fruit.  It stirred me..mostly the envious me.  The competitive me.  The "I think I can do that" me.  And while I don't love oil painting, I do love watercolors but I don't have the life to devote to painting everyday...I am giving January a shot.
I began by assembling my paints and leaving them out so I have to walk by them everyday.  That is hard for me, cuz I like cleaning up after a project, but it is part of my plan.  I am calling this endeavor...If I were an ARTIST!! ( then I would paint more right?)

So far this is what I have finished.

two little mandarin oranges..
 onion trio.....

I am thinking pomegranates next or maybe kiwi....I don't know.  All I know is I keep walking past my palette and
feeling an itch...
