Welcome to the first step in my blogging adventure! What you're likely to witness here is my delight and my struggle on my journey to become a better painter. I'll start with my latest exercise, "Plum Crazy." I'm taking part in a weekly online painting challenge sponsored by "Daily Paintworks." This assignment was to paint the same thing 8 times, spending only 10 minutes on each one. I had so much fun that I'm likely to repeat this often!
