30 Paintings in 30 Days - A Failed Painting

Well, I crashed and burned this afternoon and had to rip my painting, so I hope to do two pieces tomorrow.

On the bright side, though, I started a journal this morning (maybe the painting should have come before the journal).   The cover is finished and page one is in progress.  Even so, I can see things on both pages I would change already.  That's just me.

    1. Thanks, Laurie. I gave myself a facelift on that journal cover (took off about 20 years), so I'm feelin' okay.
      Glad to see you are "smokin'" with the challenge. Especially love your angel!! I gotta catch up within the next few days (I'm SO rusty - not so good results so far, but it will get better). Love your paintings!!
