Challenges, Challenges, Challenges

I really enjoy joining blog / art challenges. What’s great about them is really you can do it at your lesiure.  If you don’t have time or if you don’t like the challenge being presented you can skip that week.  No big deal, no harm.

Maybe I just need to go throw paint around and just hope for the best?
