There's an interesting new challenge site out there, a woman who gives full credit for her idea to Carol Marine and her Daily Paintworks Challenge. The latest site is the Rookie Painter, run by Jen Smith. She posts a picture every 3 weeks, asks you to paint it however you want, and then upload it to her. This challenge, due tonight at midnight: apples and their reflections.
