For this challenge it was my turn to send out a source photo and I chose this adorable little ballerina. She was wandering the halls of the Smithsonian and stopped right in front of Renoir's "Dancer." She was so tiny but absolutely mesmerized by the sight of the beautiful ballerina in front of her. It was a magical moment for her...and for me!! And, yes, I did ask her father for permission to take her picture!
This is my sixth entry into my Hilton Head 4 Challenge. One of us selects a reference photo and sends it to the other three...then we each interpret the source any way we want. Sometimes we have a lot of time to paint...sometimes we are rushed and just get the thing done...but we always come up with beautiful creative pieces to share every other Friday!
Chris, Lulu, Lydia and I took a Karin Jurick workshop last November. We shared a beach house and spent a fabulous week immersed in a world filled with art, inspiration and camaraderie. We hated for the week and the excitement about our artwork to end so we decided to stay connected with this bi-weekly challenge.
