There will be a painting or drawing created

My plan is this:

Each day I will touch a pencil or brush to paper or canvas and create.

I will track my acomplishments as small or large as they may be . At the end of the day I will lay my head comfortably on a pillow with a feeling of acomplishment.
After the recent loss of my Ginger man.....(14 1/2 year old red head kitty) to cancer I am more determined then ever to make my goal.

To see more of my work go to
