Moses Botkin Monthly Challenge

This month's subject was my pick. And I chose something that has challenged me before. An unmade bed. I think the difficulty is the pattern of the sheets on top of the folds and rumples. As it turns out, I didn't quite get into those sorts of issues. I saw this scene at my parent's house in Florida recently. They've had this bed for ages and its the one I now sleep in when I visit. I had gotten up one night late and when I came back, the perfect scene presented itself.

I really enjoyed this challenge subject, Robin. Thanks for the push; it was indeed a challenge, and lotsa fun.

And I love the story of your beautiful unmade bed painting!
