Well, I've been doing this drawing and painting a day for 6 months. It's hard to believe. Now I just have 6 months to go. I guess I'm on the downward slide instead of the upward slide, but people, I'm tellin' ya', I can't look that far ahead. If I do, my brain will freak out like a Medusa head. So I will continue, one day at a time, one day at a time until one day I collapse into a blubbering mass, fingers trembling from their effort, and I'll say, "I did it! I'm done."
Until then, onward ho!
Here was my first attempt (on the opposite side of above), but there wasn't enough room to continue.
