Moses Botkin Challenge Dec. 2011

This month's challenge topic was mine. I swear I was not thinking 'emotional' blues...it was the collection of ultramarine bottles I have. Did I use them for my painting? Nope! Decided it was too involved...so did my first 'chair' painting. I'm liking having a kit right beside me.

My most favorite part of this challenge is on the 14th when we all share our 'conclusion' with the group.  With much gnashing and gnarling of teeth, I might add :)

What fun to see your blue shapes as part of the challenge this month, Vicki. You always come up with such unique ideas!

Vicki, When I saw your Blue painting I thought, A lesson Learned. Great color use for this one.

Thanks, Ruth. Whenever I hit a reluctance to paint, I remember one of my mentors, Kippy Hammond, saying, "go back to the basics"!

My new psychological method to fool Wicki into painting...CHAIR painting.
Chair today, studio tomorrow :)

I'm curious to hear more about "chair painting" - whatever it was, it produced really dynamic results. I love your "exercise". Do those bottles next time.

"Chair Painting" another original phrase cooked up by Wicki...Will be exploring it more, watch for news!

Oooh, I love all this blue! I am especially drawn to the blue ornaments. I want that painting! Merry Christmas Vicki!

Thanks, Katherine. Check with Diana about availability on the blue ornament. It is stunning, isn't it!
