The next challenge will be STRANGERS.
Kerry here. Let me explain about the topics. Tina and I have long since run out of challenge ideas. No surprise there! So, when a few months back I found a Pinterest list, meant for photographers, it seemed to fit the bill.
Now, at the end of each month, Tina picks a number. Unless it is too similar to a previous Covid Challenge, that becomes the new challenge!
Eventually we will get to the end of that list too so if anyone has another list or a new idea, we would appreciate your input. Email us email@example.com !
By Lynne Ayers This is from my “fields” series inspired by my own backyard. This one will never be for sale because it has memories attached to it.
Whenever I look at it – and it hangs near my tv so I look at it a lot – I see my husband emerging from the woods on his old man’s dirt bike (his ATV) after a day of making and maintaining trails in the woods – trails that unfortunately now are disappearing.
By Yvonne Callaway This work is abstract in concept – the artist painting the sky — and execution. The artist depicted the artist painting the sky by using stencils, spray paint, collage. It was a way to play with colour while demonstrating the joy of painting.
By Tina Whitman When I found out that the challenge was a sunset, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Change Islands, Newfoundland has the most unbelievable sunsets ever, the colours are fantastic.
By Kerry Herwynen McIntosh Now, on to Sunsets. I enjoyed these. Who doesn’t like a nice sunset? I’ve been focused on college lately so all but one of my offerings is in that medium.
My final painting is an old acrylic I found in my box of Trial and Errors. It was inspired by a scene at, I think, Lakeshore road? While not legitimately part of this month’s challenge, I threw it in.
By Milo Smith This only qualifies as I made the final composite in 2020. The original sunset was taken in 2018 over Alexandria and not as is usual many miles away at the horizon.
I liked the image but wanted to spice it up; so, I deleted the old moon (bright spot lower left) and substituted a “new” larger moon.
I then wanted something weird so I added a paper wasp just because I could!
