Art Challenge

Would someone donate a photograph we could use for an 'art challenge'? (I don't take enough photos to pick from and I don't want to rip off someone else's.)

Everyone is welcome to join in on the 'challenge'. Lets pick Sandy to be the 'holder' of the links. We will each create our interpretation of a photo, post it on our blog and then let Sandy know its available. (Sandy...okay?)

The 'challenge' is not a competition but a personal challenge to get something done. (chuckling) Well, its a challenge for me, anyway. All are welcome to participate. (even lurkers) Is a deadline of a week too much or too little? A person could do more than one version of a challenge also. I think this is on the order of the blog Different Strokes, Different Folks (or something similar)... the link is on Sandy's art blog if you wanted to take a look. Ours is just smaller in scale.

I'm rambling. The only rule is that there really aren't any rules. Any media, any interpretation... one could go for capturing the emotion of the photo, or craft a symbol of the photo contents, or anything.

I hope someone comes up with a photo by tomorrow evening. If not, I've got a photo of Laura's in mind, but I would have to get her permission to use it. I'm still rambling.

(Brenda, I hope you join in, too.)

Added: Go here to see what Sandy has posted for us to pick from.

hahahah, just came here and saw this after I just put up four photos asking for an art challenge. Now let me go read the rest of your post..ha, coinkindink or something like that....and I have tones more if none of those interest you.

I have tons..and of course I'll be glad to be the link holder...I'm good at that...

Tell me if the subjects interest you...if not I'll post a few more to choose from.

I will try maybe. I just wanted to say you have my permission to use any of my photos at any time. I have some animal ones that turned out kinda good. My blog is not organized so you would have to do some searching, but feel free to download them...whoops unless they are my daughter's. I usually ask her first. I am pretty sure she would say yes, but I ask her first.

Of course any photo of mine could be used. I already saw Sandy's photos and picked one to draw. As I go through my photos, if I see something that I'd like to draw and maybe others would like to try, I'll post it at my cook's blog with a comment. So first we'll concentrate on one of Sandy's, right? Right.

Sandy - Jon Sullivan has offered all of his photos to the public domain. He's got quite a variety, so it'd be a great link for you to hold on to if you're in need of reference photos.

Great...and I'll check out that link Leanne. Brenda, thanks too and Laura and of course, any of mine can be used too,...I actually meant to say that to you CC, if you ever see one of my photos, no need to ask...
