New Challenge

First, I apologize for bieng a bit behind on this one, I have been struggling with my heart of late, but you don't get rid of me that easily. I have been tired and cranky these days, but I won't be with you. Now on to the Challenge.

I know this is going to be a stretch for you ladies, but I promise you, this will be worth it. In what ever medium you normally paint with, I want you to produce an abstract, surreal or otherwise. No just making a mess on your canvas and calling it an abstract. I want us all to put some thought into this.

This can be anything from the kind of concept painting I posted a while back of falling cones to Jackson Pollock type of drip paintings. But each entry must be well thought out and everyone can do this.

The object of doing something like this is to help us jolt ourselves out of our comfort qone. When you are done, you will be reinvigorated and will give you an appreciation for both abstract and your own usual style.

Have fun and entries should be on monday June 22nd.


  1. Ok I am willing to give it a try. I will have to do some thinking here though. This coul dbe fun, or I could be pulling my hair out. :0)

  2. That's the idea JJ, to give it some thought first and maybe experiment a little second and then go for it. Besides, isn't that the point of the challenge, to do things that are different than what we're used to doing?

    I know you can do it!!
