If your are not Facebook friends with a lot of artists, you may not know of the Three Paintings in Five Day Challenge that has been taking place since the first of the year. It’s amazing how an idea can become viral, but on the plus side it has been wonderful to see so much art from artist friends flooding the ethers.
The idea is to postthree of your own paintings in five days and then challenge an artist to do the same on each of the five days. Then they do the same challenging other artists and so on and so on. I’ll be curious to see how long these continue in my News Feed!
I was nominated by good friend and wonderful watercolor painter Carrie Waller, if you haven’t seen her work you must. I finished the challenge last week but for those of you whom I am not friends with on Facebook, I thought I would post here on the blog what I did on Facebook.
I’m starting out with a few oils. These were inspired by my time living in Hong Kong. The two temple paintings have actual worshipping papers in the background. The market painting is of one of my favorite vendors in the wet market in SoHo, a mother and daughter that sold only bananas and peanuts. I challenged all my Florida Watercolor Society friends who hadn't been challenged yet.
