Hi everyone, so glad you could join in for a lot of fun!!!!
I will be posting 16 images and 2 challenges.
Please wait until all are uploaded before commenting - thank you
You have 30 minutes to make your choice and choose your materials.
For the next two hours, just go for it! (don't forget! If you cannot make it today, you have all week to get your 2 hours in!!)Use any medium or style – it’s up to you……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. Using the uploader for your work puts the image in the thread unlike the attachment method. For the newbies....In the new thread box, just click on the little mountain icon, browse and click on your image and when it appears in the window, click on it and the image url will show up in your thread.
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 over the weekend into a single thread: multiple threads will be merged!
It’s fun for all to participate at the same time but not always possible! Please join in whenever you can – you have a whole week!
After posting your contribution, please view others’ entries and comment and encourage. Unless requested, please refrain from critiquing.

Here are the first four images:
As you can see, I was not watching my diet whilst in France:evil:
This is my breakfast area along with some lovely flowers my dh brought me
This is the interior of Paul Cezanne's studio, which I visited in Aix
These are the famous white horses of Provence; when they are born, they are dark, and change color as they mature
Dunno know what kind of duck they are but caught my eye in Amsterdam

This is my son Seth being bored:evil:
The flower seller in St. Remy was very proud of his wares...
This is my lovely daughter Leah....
And my yummy eat her up grandaughter Kandace!

This little girl caught my eye in the flower market in Arles.
Can't do France without poppies!!
The flower market in Arles...
The reflection pool at the Chateau we visited in Luberon Valley
And of course VanGogh's famous cafe in Arles

The hospital cloister where Van Gogh stayed during his illness in St Remy
My morning room....
And now for your challenge, if you wish:
Challenge 1: Paint one of the pictures in three values only!!!!
Challenge 2: In honor of Van Gogh, try a painting in his technique, study his brushwork, and variations, and see what you can do.!
I included some interior scenes, as most people have a tendency not to see what is right in front of us that would make good art, so thought it might be a different perspective!
Most of all have fun, and hope you enjoy the pics I chose for this week!!!

These photos are awesome, Tressa!!! I can't wait to dig in Van Gogh style! :clap:
Thanks for hosting! :)

Beth, words cannot describe the feelings of awe, sadness, and sheer amazement I felt standing in the same room, grounds and areas where he painted in St Remy. Not to get maudlin, but it was very spiritual...Although the hospital is still a working mental institution, we were able to go around quite of the grounds. My tribute on site to VanGogh was his painting of the ivy. although a wall seperated me from the actual site, there was a plaque there and using that, and my imagination, this was my humble tribute to a misunderstood genius....

fabulous photo's Tressa, very inspiring :thumbsup: , and your painting is lovely, very moving storey, I know what you mean about standing where they have stood. I love Einsteiin's saying,
'if I can see further than those who came before me, it is because I stand on the shoulders of giants',
think that's it. It's not only true of science, but of many things, including art, we are well spoiled in this day and age to have so many great teachers to learn from, and such freedom to express ourselves. :clap:
Bless 'em all ...Shelley
PS . why havn't you got a little light bulb by your wde photos?
Thanks for these, Tressa. Very nice selection to set the imagination going. BTW, I believe they are wood ducks.

What a wonderful selection of photos!! Guess I'll spend a little bit of time reading some of Van Gogh's letter (in the online museum) to get me in the mood to do your challenge. Thanks again and love your story and painting. Have fun this weekend.

Here are some links explaining the three value system called Notans:
09-12-2008, 05:45 PM
Tressa, gorgeous images! The ducks, the one on the right, is an ordinary duck (female), but the beauty to the left is of another species.
One *can't* diet in France! And most French women are elegantly slim, and eat a lot! Their food is good for you!
Have fun at PSA!

So many lovely images! Thanks Tressa, and Shelly for the inspiration today! I leave on Monday for a week on Block Island of plein air painting, but I will try my best in between packing to get at least one done. I have saved a few of the images...in case of rain!!!! :)
09-12-2008, 09:02 PM
The photos are beautiful! Hope to do at least one in the three values. :)

Great images Tressa! Thanks for sharing these invaluable experiences with us. Now which one to choose? Poor van Gogh! But what a lovely mental health facility that is.
