I made a commitment last week to work on something new each day.  If I could just squeeze in practicing with the Wacom, using Photoshop, and other mediums I have gotten away from the last few years, for just 30 minutes a day…something good will come of it!  Then, last night I ran into this challenge on Alicia’s blog: THE 21-DAY CHALLENGE…perfect!! 

Here is one of the pieces I did yesterday. I wrote the little poem last week, and then could not get this image out of my head so I had to give it a shot.  I like the sketches better than the color version,,,but I may make another version too.  That is the purpose of the challenge, after all!
