February 15, 2013 MB Challenge 'Hat'

Wow! Once a month blog...tearing up the cloud sphere, for sure! Actually I've been acclimating to Twitter. Still haven't 'gotten' it yet.

This month's theme was 'Hat', chosen by Diana Moses Botkin. This little photo came to mind, and I thought I could whip it out. THAT's what I get for thinking...took 3 times longer than anticipated, and after it dries it may get another session. Don't ever think that just because a piece of art is small that it takes much less time. You'd be very wa-wrong. 

Suzanne is taking a short break this month, so it is just Diana and me. We've all gotten so much benefit from the once-a-month schedule that we're reluctant to quit. Some months we've all experienced the challenge being what gets us back in the painting groove...and that, my friends, is the name of the game!

ps: if anyone is interested in a very low key challenge that is always very fresh and fun, get in touch with Diana
