CHALLENGE at the END of the 16 images I'll be posting

Please wait until all are uploaded before commenting - thanks!

You have 30 minutes to make your choice and choose your materials - you may use any medium.

For the next two hours, just go for it……then STOP!, scan or photograph your work and post it in your own new thread with your title, beginning with WDE, plus date, plus title.

When you introduce your work, please add a description of size, medium, support (paper, canvas etc) and time taken.
If your work is digital, we'd appreciate a description of whether it's freehand drawing/painting, manipulated image or done using the filters available in some programmes - you could also say which programme you've used.
All are acceptable but we'd like to know the "hows, whys and wherefores"!!

Use WIP for any work in progress at the 2 hour mark, and MI for multiple images if other works are to be added before the following Monday.

NB. To avoid forum flooding, please put all of your work during the weekend, for the current WDE, into a single thread: multiple threads will be merged!
From the following MONDAY, you may open a new thread for later work.

You have the whole week to participate - until the next WDE starts (usually Friday). If you finish a piece after that time, please post in its own thread and try to give the date/host of that particular week - if you can!

After posting your contribution, please view others’ entries and comment and encourage when you can. Unless requested, please refrain from critiquing.

I laughed so hard when I saw this in a shop window in this ski village town. I really liked the reflections and busy-ness of this too.

I loved this old brick building. Check out those amazing windows. And the name of the place was....."The Brick House." A ton of imagination when into naming it!!

Just like the invitation of the Sasquatch, this elk statue was just one of the many that stood at the entrance to new developments out in the middle of nowhere.

YES - to anyone that is wondering this is MARSHA the cat. The cat that won't die. The evil remains in my home. And this is just one of the many evil poses that she allows me to capture of her! :cat:

My fiance was trying to take a photo of birds over the water but in the end the birds were blurry and the far away farmland looked amazing.

If you look really closely you can see the Canada Geese. 2 on land and 2 in the water. But the real show stealer is the old crocked sha

There's that bit of RED we're suppose to include in every painting :lol:

And Vain Valri is alive and well!

Oh, oh, decisions, decisions! So many beautiful images. What to paint? What to paint?

This is my fiance, Barry's granddaughter MacKenzie Quinn. She is 6 months old. Connie painted here as a newborn and that painting now hangs in MQ's bedroom!

Barry using his new lens.....how close can you get?

And I think these are called Blue Bells?

An old home surrounded by fallen in barns and old sheds

Barry's other grandchild but this little guy is the only BOY. Barry has 3 granddaughters and just one little grandson! His name is Zaiden but I have nicknamed him Z-man! He's almost 2 and riding the rail

Scary stairs that I lightened up a bit in PhotoShop.

It's like I had a strange desire to photograph stairs....but I just liked the color of this house, and the tree in the front yard!

The dogs! The black lab, Brodie, now lives with Barry's son. The little one is Gracie and she is with us. But when these two get together it's like an old friendship catches fire!!


1. paint upside down
2. paint with your non-dominant hand
3. paint in the style of YOUR favorite artist (dead or alive)

But mostly just have FUN!!

Some are in Canada and some are here in WA state. Mixed bag for the most part!

I absolutely love that first one, must get one of those Tee shirts!

I was hoping for a still life in the images :P you know why ; something about killing birds (not literally)

Think I've done quite enough cats :lol:

Hey Lin, are the knives like a still life? HAHAHA

04-03-2015, 04:25 PM
Knives would be considered a still life.

04-03-2015, 05:57 PM
I think I'll have a go at this. I'll take up the challenge of painting with my non-dominant hand :)

04-04-2015, 08:49 AM
Awwwwww Marsha, she's a grand old lady, and she looks pretty good too.
You keep up giving her the evil eye Marsha, cause whatever you're doing is working ......LOL
