Monthly Challenge Group

Below are paintings from a new challenge group, organized by Diana Moses Botkin. One of the group chose a subject and we were all to paint our interpretation. We did not share our results until this weekend. Today we are unveiling our first project. Its so fun to see what everyone created based on one of the most loved children's toys!

Snow! Why'd it Have to be Snow?!

With apologies to Indiana, I thought the little guy's smirk was perfect for this snow job.

Your painting is amazing. You took a theme, which most painted, of course the toy, and created a "story" by adding Anna. The light on her shirt and face is absolutely perfect. Beautiful painting!

These are fun, and I especially love seeing Anna - you really caught that focused intensity that kids have.
