30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge - #30

Well, I enjoyed the challenge, but I'm glad its over.  Really, I did more sketches than paintings, but I'm happy with that considering it's been quite a while since I've done any artwork (other than doodles).

What I appreciate even more, though, is reconnecting with blogging friends & making new friends.   I hope to keep posting about twice a week, and am looking forward to exploring other artsy directions.

Congrats to all who participated in the challenge.  And a sincere thank you to everyone for the extremely kind and supportive comments!
