Moses Botkin Monthly Challenge

This month Diana chose our subject - striped socks! And what fun it was to think about and paint. I think everyone had fun with this subject. Who can't be happy when painting colorful footwear?
My image was inspired by my model... my daughter. Hand her a book and she poses very well for a short while. What I love is that she twists her lithe little body into all kinds of positions so naturally. I just wait and click the camera. She is never still, so painting from life is not possible. This didn't come out QUITE like I meant... seems to be my modus operandi lately. I am going to approach this scene again.
I love the other paintings. They are so fun. I think it would be very cool to have all of them hanging together!

I'm really enjoying your piece, Robin! I love the freshness and spontaneity you captured. I can't wait to see what happens when you revisit this theme.

And YES!... how fun it would be to see these all hung together. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could have a show of ALL our Challenge pieces some day?!

We can, of course, show them on our blogs, but it would be great to have them hung together in a physical space to see them in person and appreciate the sizes, textures and contrasts, as a body of work.
