Different Strokes, Oil, 8x8
This is in response to Karin Jurick's bi-weekly challenge - Different Strokes From Different Folks. So I'm not putting in on ebay, but if anyone wants it just email me. I like challenges, and using someone else's image certainly fits that bill. I just focused on the shapes of the ladies and their shadows - and it was fun putting in the little park/traffic background as well. While I was doing it, I was gritting my teeth in fear - then I said to myself "Nobody knows you're doing this... if it doesn't turn out, just wipe it off!" and that freed me to try some things. I did have to do a little wiping off, but that's OK. I'm so inspired by the other artists that have done this challenge. I don't know how often Karin updates her submissions - every few days of so, I think.
