Thank you Reikiart for the nice comment on my flower painting. All the versions that I've seen are so beautiful and creative like Patti's blue flowers. Lil

Patti - I love your choice of blues for this one - and the yellow flower really makes the painting sing!

Re: Different Strokes - June 2011

Thanks everyone for the nice comments.

And Paula I don't think I chose blues... I think they chose me. It sorta just happened because that is not what I started to paint. Thanks for hosting.

Re: Different Strokes - June 2011

I know we still have two days left, but I wanted to go ahead and post this gallery of all the paintings together that way you guys can enjoy it for a couple of days before we are on to the next challenge. If any more come in I will update the gallery. Also, if I missed anyone, please let me know. Please note that the software I used for creating this collage automatically cropped some of the images, and I apologize for that - if this is your first time taking a peek at June's paintings, please go through and look at each one individually because this does not do them justice. They are all so beautiful and so unique! Great job everyone!

Paula, these are lovely! Thanks so much for doing them - and the cropping doesn't matter when the originals are in this same thread!
Gorgeous

Re: Different Strokes - June 2011

Good afternoon everyone, I'm new to WetCanvas (been lurking for a while). Each painting is so different, with so many unique and beautiful styles...I can see each person's "voice" in their artwork. What a great idea...since I'm new to painting, this is a great forum to try subject matter I would normally avoid. Thanks for hosting this and I can't wait to see what comes up next.

Really neat to see all of the paintings together - great work everyone!! It is always so fun to see all of the different interpretations of the original photo.

Paula, thanks again for hosting! I had a lot of fun with this painting. I worked some more on my version and I may even end up framing it.

Hi, Michelle, and welcome! July's Different Strokes Challenge should be posted sometime tomorrow, I think, so please check back and join in! It is a very encouraging group of people here who usually take part in the monthly challenge.
Hope you get to join in, Michelle!

Glad you had so much fun with this, Deb! I had a good time hosting!
