A quick note to let you know why I've added another photo to the challenge this week. I wanted more of the clay pot to show, so I threw in another shot that provided it. Feel free to paint whichever you prefer!

Thanks again to all who participated in the last challenge. Once again, I'm under the wire trying to upload my photo at 11:52pm on deadline day. It's been a crazy three weeks here, with a remodel at work and Montezuma's revenge at home that had me incapacitated for two full days. Seriously. It was gross.

Enjoy the tulips! Deadline for challenge five is midnight, Monday, May 17th.

challenge four

Thanks to all who participated in the last challenge. It was really difficult for me, as I think you can see by several things I kind of gave up on. Like, the girl at the juke box has an alien head. Like the way I just kind of gave up in the lower left hand corner and pretty much the entire left side, as a matter of fact. I'm thinking I might have better luck if I get started on a project sooner than the day it's due to be finished.

I hope you have fun with this next challenge, I think I'll enjoy painting it much better than the last, although I think I've said that each time a new challenge has come around. A bit brighter, a bit shinier, and a much clearer photo than the last.

Good luck!

**edited to add that once again I've forgotten to post the deadline. The deadline for challenge four is midnight, Monday, April 26th.
