I've pretty much stuck with the daily painting a day...somedays it's been busy so I've prepped the night before.  Is it great art, no. It's quick, fast, and small.  It's taking me effort sometimes that is called for but I'm also testing new brushes or a new watercolor paint.  Has it been worth it...YES.  I can see a difference.  Things I used to struggle with come easier.

Anyway, have a great day....I'm off to get a few things done today.

This has been, so far, 28 days of painting a 4x6 everyday.  It didn't sound like it was going to be that difficult in the beginning. Beginnings never are. Now it day 28 and I'm running out of ideas. Never thought I say that...but I am.  Am I gonna stop, no...but this has been a learning experience and I'm glad I did it.
