                                         7 x 10      watercolor

                                  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.

"My Four legged friends"

                                                    MISS KITTY   and
                                            GRACE  -  are my sweet furry friends that keep me company while I paint or draw. I'm posting them because I was envious of seeing the pets on someone else' blog.

                                                 10 x 12   colored pencil on Bristol.

                                                 Well, being part of a group of artist that give ourselves to the leadership of Karin Jurick or how some call her Capt'n , in her blog " Different Strokes From Different Folks "  stretches you a bit but the result from everyone is really good.
I'm learning that I'm not 'too' crazy, seeing the result, but doing this piece was a bit daunting especially with this technique.

 This is Cloud Gate Sculpture in Millennium Park, Chicago also known                  as " the Bean "
     It is also this week's challenge from Karin Jurick's blog 
                 "different strokes from different folks"
This week has been a bit more of a stretch but the result from everyone is wonderful and the connectedness with each member is growing and gives me a feeling of a big art family. Thanks!
