Yes, I did it again, signed up for the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge. Then I got this commission. And I got a bug. A serious, no-holds-barred cleaning bug. ACK! But I managed to get this one done on January 1st (she still needs her whiskers!), but I really wanted to concentrate on birds and more flowers this month. I have done no pre-sketching this time. And my house still needs some serious cleaning. And... I return to my other life on Monday. I really want to do the challenge, but I have other life things that keep popping up. We'll see how this goes!
