The Return is in Sight

It has taken a few YEARS, but Studio Atelier will be re-activated in a couple of months. We have moved from our home of over 30 years and are beginning to settle into our new place. It's going to take several weeks to get my studio set up, and believe me it's long overdue. I can't wait to get warmed up and painting on several pieces that have been in limbo for months.

I hope you are having fun with your art. I'll be back in September.

May 2011 Challenge: Sunflowers

Submittal Deadline:  Sunday, June 5, 2011
11:59 PM MST
A 5-Week Challenge
 This month's challenge comes from last fall's discovery of a massive sunflower field in the country north of Denver.
Colorado Sunflower Field

I'm certain I had sunflowers on my mind when I chose this photograph because I watched my favorite Dr. Who 11 episode over the weekend - Vincent and The Doctor.  Need I say more?

You will have five (5) weeks to work on this challenge.  Remember to follow the "Rules of the Road" on the right and send me your images as an attachment to your email by June 5, 2011, when you also will be able to see what I have in store for you for the June challenge. Thanks to everyone who participates.

Happy painting!
