WELCOME TO THE AUGUST ALL MEDIA PHOTO CHALLENGE!
Challenge: Create artwork based on any or all of these photos and themes. Use any medium and any style.
Stick to the photo(s) exactly or just use them as a starting point -
feel free to crop, change colors, composition, add or subtract elements
or take a complete departure. In other words, HAVE FUN and keep painting!
Also, do artwork on anything that reminds YOU of summer!

Great selection Nealey. I have a few picked out...now to find the time.
C&Cs always welcome
Nealey, such a lovely selection of photos! I'm inspired.
Comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.
Nealey, thanks Nealey for some great pictures! Hopefully this month I can settle down and paint again. Sorry the site gave you a hard time!
Jen C & C's always welcome
Nealey, you have chosen a nice photo selection for inspiration. I think I see Niagara Falls in your friend's photos and yours are lovely and interesting.
Bonnie C & C most welcome / appreciated
Hello Bonnie! Yes, that is Niagara Falls and the bridge is the Rainbow Bridge, connecting US to Canada. Living relatively close to the Falls (about 2 hrs.), I forget what a wonder it is to others.
Well I needed a break from fish and paint so made this sun loving gnome, that probably counts as summer fun!
Made from clay about 6' long. Still some finishing to do.
Jen,what a great beginning for the August challenge! Do you have little gnomes stowed in your paint closet to pose for you?!?!?!? She looks like she is daydreaming - how precious! Did you finish your other gnomes yet?
This is so clever and charming, Jen! It's takes a whole different way of thinking to interpret something three dimensionally. So nicely done!
Jenn this is another cute gnome. Is she laying on the dock watching fishing gnome?
Hi all. I just got my new laptop hooked up and running. Its going to be good to get back to doing something instead of being lazy and this looks like a good month to start.
C and C always welcomed
Nealey, Alex and Karen, glad you like him .i know he looks like a girl with all that long hair but I made him a he!! He still needs a bit of refining. I had to draw up his pose because it is difficult to imagine how body parts fit. The other gnomes are finally off for their first firing and it will remain to be seen if they make it through okay. Maybe I will make another to keep this one company in the warm sun!
Geri, I am so glad you are back in business as you have been very much missed!
Geri, so great to have you back!
Just back from my break, glad to see Geri is back again too.
Nealey ....inspirational selection, thank you for taking all this trouble for us.
feel free to make constructive c/c...no digital alterations please
Geri, a new laptop ~ YAAAAAAYYYYYY!!!!! I have missed you and your humor. I thought one or two of my photos posted might appeal to you!
Sarah, welcome back from your jaunt!
Jen, I'll keep my fingers crossed for your gnomes in the kiln.
