This painting was from a challenge I took up from a blog called Different Strokes from Different Folks. The artist who began this is Karin Jurick, a very talented and known painter. She presents the challenge with a photograph and then artists do their interpretations of it. You are also asked to try a different medium each time. I chose to do my first one with oil pastels, not a medium that I usually use. It is so interesting to see all the different interpretations. This would make a great project for any art teachers out there! You can see the photo for this week along with all the interpretations here. and... still taking bids for Magnificence- Sunday's blog.
