I ended up creating several pieces from this week's challenge, I'll be showcasing them in the weeks to come. I found myself spurred on to try more landscapes because this one was successful and I also was inspired by both Tracey Fletcher King and Dion Dior this week. I love their "ordinary things" paintings. They both know how to make anything interesting & beautiful.

Artist: Jennifer McLean
|By Cindy at Cottage Remnant|
I love this piece the most this week.
Cindy's style is so romantic, even when
she's drawing her desk! I especially
love the little notes "insert printer here"
|Tracy, The Domestic Gourdess|
Don't you just love the
justaposition of the textured
tree trunk against the soft
cat's paw? Brilliant photo!
|Hope at The Sinister Scribe|
These amazing Zentangle beetles
were inspired by a junebug
landing on Hope when she was
in her studio! Love them.
|Dion of Dion Dior & More|
I'm always in love with Dion's pieces,
no matter what she paints. I know this
painting was inspired by her recent trip
to Australia. Extraordinary!

Isn't he just the cutest? Debbie has inspired

got toknow in my University days.
|Minnemie at Cripple Pencil|
This piece is so fantastic!
She captured body movement
so expertly, wow,
|Lou Anne at Misplaced Mermaid|
I just love Lou Anne's Shrine
of Forgotten Things. She has
captured the heart of what I
was saying, that mundane things
are beautiful too.

memories of artwork in our
house when I was young.
You did a great job!
|Tracey Fletcher King|
