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.


  1. Here's hoping lots of bright flower paintings will cheer you up and make you feel better.

  2. Aw! Thank you Sherry! I'm already much, much better.

  3. oh dear, I just made a comment and it got sucked into the void. It gae me a failure notice and i shall now try again wondering if this will cause a double post now.

    I was saying:

    I'm sorry about the montezuma revenge, it sounds nasty!

    Thank you so much for hosting this challenge though I'm yet to contribute. It's been so busy and I've done so many other things. But I hopefully submit on this one.

    Take care

    PS would you maybe consider enabling people to post comments here who don't use blogger or other blog hosting services? I have wp and blogger accounts but they are not where the action is...

  4. I love the reference photo. I am so glad I was able to particpate again. Looking forward to the next photo.
