30 Day Painting Challenge Sept 2016

The challenge is not about finishing 30 gallery quality "perfect" paintings. It's about getting in to the studio to try new things. It's about painting more often. It's about having fun and developing new habits! 

Historically I have never been very good a finishing these type of challenges, but here's hoping.
