I don't know if this is finished yet ? I think it needs a background but I need to see it for a while before deciding. I've always like these fruits. They have a symbol too but I forgot what it is at this time I'll have to look it up.
She posted a picture of her boots but I felt I needed to add more to this challenge and wanted to portray the look of our shoes during our life. Obviously there are more representation possible but I decided to stop there.
I had lots of fun doing this. I hope you check all the other entries also.
I don't know if I will post anything more before Christmas because life is getting busy.
So I wish everyone a most beautiful and blessed Christmas, may you all receive the greatest gift of all. Christ our Lord.

This week's challenge for Different Strokes From Different Folks blog of Karin Jurick is an Alabama Cow . I've never painted a cow before so this is my 1 st. one and I have not touched watercolors in a while . The advantage of the DSFDF blog is it gets me to practice more out of my comfort zone and to paint something I would of not picked like the NYSE. BUT it's a lot of FUN so check all the entries.
I wanted something more in my original drawing. I thought of lines that I would draw but I wanted color too. So I decided to add the color but that was horrible by it- self . I decided to add the lines but thought it would be more interesting if they were made of a magazine picture.
So here are my lines, my color and my little white pumkins.
This style of work is new for me but it was fun to do. This is a dream I had and started painting. I would really appreciate to know how this painting speaks to you so please leave comments if you want. ( click on the image to enlarge it)
