No real excuse - just fighting a bug and not good at concentrating. Overwhelmed with to dos. And when painting becomes one of them instead of a joy, perhaps it's best not to try.
I will try to visit all the PPFers and see your efforts even if I'm not joining the party this week. Hope you all have fun at Paint Party Friday!
(Hmm - Wonder why Blogger doesn't convert ascii happy/sad faces to cartoons - wordpress does...)
