Challenges for the Upcoming Show

CTPS is holding a show in May based on our monthly challenge paintings. This gives us even more reason to allow ourselves to rise to the challenge at each meeting. The idea is that the club gives us a list of challenging topics to paint. Each month members bring their example of how they met the challenge to show the other members. I have been pretty lax this year in participating, but I did have a painting for "Bright City Lights" (La Tour d'Eiffel at night, I only wish I could remember where I put it - it's completely vanished), "Oh, the Places We've Been" (Colorado), Reflections of Myself (way too embarrassing to exhibit), and "Abstracting the Landscape" (Red Roof Retreat). I finally did one of "The Other Wildflowers of Texas" (Cactus Flower). Now it's time to get cracking on the next challenge topic - Stormy Weather.
