Make Art Challenge

A friend of mine announced she was starting a 30-day yoga challenge. Every day for the next 30 days, starting today, she intends on practicing yoga. This really got me thinking.
They say it takes 21 days to create a new habit. Discipline is not my strongest trait, (except when it comes to running). I have never been one to stick to many things, my curious and restless nature usually distracts me and next thing I know, I'm completely off the rails.
Maybe a self-imposed challenge is just what I need to get some discipline back into my art practice. So, for the next 30 days, I intend to stretch my creative muscles and make a piece of art every day. It may be a painting, it may be a drawing. It could be a collage, or a logo design (just for fun) or even just a doodle. So, here it goes. Wish me luck!

Today I was in the studio and made a couple quick pieces on paper then one on canvas.
