challenge eight

Deja vu, right? If this looks familiar to you, that's mainly because this is the same type arrangement of fruit we painted for the first challenge of three oranges. I had three photos to choose from for this challenge and both my husband and daughter chose this one, unbeknownst to the other what selection the other had made, so I thought it being a two for two selection, how could we go wrong?

It seems like everyone is painting cherries these days, and I suppose that has everything to do with what is in season at the market. My husband thinks I have a thing for food, and while he's absolutely correct, me choosing fruits and such has everything to do with color and shape as opposed to how much I like to eat them.

Enjoy! Challenge eight submissions are due Monday, July 19th.

challenge seven

Challenge Seven. A bit more contrast than the last, yet still neutral in color palette. Lots of angles, lots of detail, just the thing that makes me crazy enough to wonder why I do this to myself and at the same time hope upon hope I can pull off something that even remotely resembles the challenge photo.

Good luck to you all, I'm sure you'll create fabulous works; you always do!

Deadline for Challenge Seven is Monday, June 28.
