Linda’s Spring Challenge
June 22, 2011 § 5 Comments
Linda’s blogging challenge was something that I was really excited to participate in. I was really surprised that it was such a difficult task! Linda, runs one of the best blogs around, and it has become a daily read. She challenged everyone to read, and hopefully be inspired to do a piece of art or writing. The quote, “the leaping greenly spirits of trees”, from e.e. cummings, became the main prompt.
I am in NYC now and didn’t have a lot of “nature” to inspire me. So, I took a recent photo from my album and painted it. I had originally posted the photo of the Eastern Field at my parents’ house here. It was nice to study the picture, and paint a spin on it. I really don’t paint like this, but I think I might do it more often. It was so difficult for me to lay down the right layers, place the right brushstrokes, and actually be comfortable with showing it. I will say, I am proud of it. Make sure you check out everyone’s submissions at Linda’s.
