San Franciscan Victorian DSFDF Challenge

My painting for Karin Jurick's challenge site, Different Strokes From Different Folks . It really is fun, because the challenge photo is not always what you would choose to paint.


Couldn't resist putting me in the window...this is oil on canvas.

Check out the site...you can see upclose photos of each entry, and then Karin does a composite window with all entries together.

That's all for today! Enjoy...

For some reason it takes a while your blog to load! But worth the wait I'm waving to the gal in the window!

I really like that you put yourself in the painting - very nice touch!

I'm just a silly gal! Teacher Tim recommended a warm glaze over the building to give the painting contract from the cool sky.

I'm waving to the gal in the window, too! She looks she wants to come out and play.

Nice job on this piece. I esp. like the colors.

I'm wavin' back! These challenges are good for many reasons...not the least of which is to paint something you would not ordinarily paint.

I love that you're in the window...a modern day Rapunzel? Also like your thick impasto sky and turret...gives a sense of age and history to the building.

R. I just logged onto your blog looking for your name, but it appears NOWHERE! Along the way I signed up to get your blog...thanks for the compliments about the building. It was a fun project. I thought about long red hair streaming out of the window!
