Today marks the first day of the 30 in 30 Challenge. This year I'm living by a motto (I don't usually do this...but the time came in my life to hunker down and be an art student with the intent to learn all I could about painting with soft pastels). Soooo, the motto I'm living by is to "Be Courageous". I guess that will be my theme for this challenge. I'll be painting at least one painting a day and will focus on trying new things...new subject matter, new techniques etc. they may not be the best I can do because of the time crunch...but it's going to be fun to try and loosen my style which is not an easy thing to do. So, let the games begin!
