Time to bow out gracefully, I have looked at my commitments - a commission, three upcoming shows and a couple of other issues. Realistically I can't continue with the 30 day challenge :( It was a poor effort so far...only 7 paintings in 12 days...and it was starting to get distracting from the large pile of other art that needs seeing to. Sometimes these challenges can be positive to my energy, but this time it was just a little too much. On the plus side, it will free up a bit of time to check out everyone else in the challenge as I find looking at other artists work very inspiring. So I leave you with the beginnings of a new large piece in its first stage :) Cheers!
