Day 86: Wednesday, June 1

Looking through all the possible Challenge Painting Sites - it was interesting to see how many of them haven't yet posted for June on June First. So I'll revisit them tomorrow and the next day.  For those of you who love challenge painting? Here are the sites who had posted as of today:

Possible Challenge Number One:  Lee Brown of "A Day Not Wasted" has just mounted his June Challenge. It's a fantastically gorgeous photo. If you're reading this blog, and if you paint for Lee, send me a copy of your painting just like you do to Lee. I'll post them here as well. I really love seeing what other people do with the exact same source matter.

Possible Challenge Number Two:  The "Virtual Paintout" has chosen New Zealand for its "somewhere in the world" monthly challenge. I've never had any luck with this challenge as I spend hours and hours cruising the country/location chosen and never finding anything that I think I can paint! And then you look at the wonderful things other people found to paint and in my case? You start whining that if you'd only had 16 more hours to waste, you too could have found something to paint.  So, as with the Lee Brown challenge above - if you paint anything and if you follow my blog, let me know and I'll try to post your submissions.  The one rule that the Virtual Paintout would like to have honored is that of only painting from the photos that Google itself posts on that site. The Virtual World is being inundated with photos taken by travellers and posted to the Google site and some of the painters are using these tourist photos not the Google photos to paint from. All painting was supposed to be done from the Google postings.

Other Challenges will be posted here as the challenge sites get their acts together and post their ideas.

  1. Hi Jill, I've been following your blog ever since I saw your beautiful entry in the DPW challenge. That was my little challenge, and had a great time doing it. Anyhow, I love seeing all the challenges that you're entering, and you've motivated me to try some new ones. I entered Lee Brown's challenge. If you'd like me to send you a photo of my painting, let me know how, and I will! Thanks so much for the inspiration! Love your work!
