That didn't last very long, did it?.... my promise to draw and post everyday for a month.  I went to Juneau last week and intended to get my drawings posted when I got back.  I scanned them on Tuesday but couldn't size them for the web which I do on Photoshop Elements.  I'm sure there is some other way to get the files small which I don't know about, but I haven't figured it out yet.  After reinstalling PSE and another version 3 or 4 times, and trying another similar editing tool,  I went to my much older Mac and scanned them again but that computer is too old for any browser that I can find that will load images to blogger.  A few other goofy things have been happening  on this newer than the other Mac, so I  decided to back up everything and wipe my hard drive and that I did yesterday.  

 So now I'm back in business with PSE and other things are working better too.   I guess I could go get the scans that I backed up or do them again, but I have decided to just start over today with the scans.   Well, maybe I'll put  just one old one here.  I spent the weekend with a talented group of  Juneau painters  at a retreat in the Jubilee cabin at The Shrine of St. Therese over the weekend. I painted this on Sunday.

I've stopped using the challenges from Everyday Matters.  I'm finding more inspiration now that I'm able to get outside more and flowers are starting to bloom.... though it didn't even get up to 50 today.
I'm sure the list will come in handy as I continue.

I'm going to have to admit to skipping a couple of days drawing, one on the day I took the ferry to Juneau when I left my sketch book in the lower deck in my car and on one of the days I was going crazy trying to make my computer do right.  But several days I've done more than one drawing so don't feel too bad.
