Changing a Challenge
Rose and Silver with Fruit.
6x8in oil on canvas board 100.
This is the first time I have participated in the Rookiepainter Challenge #30. If you click on the link you will see my painting. Scroll down and you will see the photo of what is provided to copy.
I enjoyed doing it and then I enjoyed making the changes, which you see above, to make it unique and my own. Only one area was not changed. Do you have a favorite?
Someone asked why I did the Challenges. A good question and easy to answer. For me, it is like cooking the meals when all the children were around. Coming up with what to make was sometimes a problem. The same goes with painting these small paintings...what to paint? It is never a problem with my large pieces but trying come up with something every day can be challenging and obviously they would not use the title if it was not the same for many an artist.
Thank you for reading my blog.
I am a painter living in Las Cruces, NM. After many years as an illustrator I turned to fine art to develop my own artistic voice. I currently teach talented and enthusiastic artists in oil, acrylic and egg tempera painting. I am also a member of the Artist Guild of Southern New Mexico.
