This month it was Jaz who set the topic for the Monthly Painters Challenge... now not to long before this Jaz Higgins, Tracey Grigc Potter and I were sitting outside drinking lovely tea and Jaz assured us she was going with an easy topic for this month... so I am thinking you know.... spring... or maybe favourite colour... but she picks Something beginning with O.
Now at first glance I am thinking this isn't too bad until you start to try to come up with an image of something starting with O that you would like to paint...
not really my thing and all that hair to draw
kind of freak me out unless they are barbecued
then they are particularly yummy
or the fruit
never turn out well for me
ok that is lame...
then I start thinking a big grafitti
come back to orange...
seriously consider doing a painting of an orange..
start hunting through books on plants
oxalis... not nice
ox eyed daisy.... boring
go to Tracey Potter's house and hope she
has left a clue as to her direction of her painting
and that will get me heading in a direction
no joy she is a crafty one that Tracey...
everything was hidden
come home and do a million tea drawings for AEDM
and paintings of tea
go to the grocery shopand
discover Oolong tea
figure I can shortcut and just do a tea pot and a packet that says oolong
feel guilty about not putting in the effort
find a random picture of a Hawaiian shirt covered in orchids...
that is so bright it is blinding
and orchids together...
add in bright shirt type tropical fabulousness
and have the final piece...
problem solved and now all I have to do is cross my fingers that next month
is something easy!!!
