San Francisco Victorian, oil, 6" x 12"
My take on the current challenge from the inventive
Different Strokes for Different Folks
(the working photo is at the right).
I always try not to look at anyone else's rendition of the weekly photo before I finish mine and post it, mostly because I'm intimidated by so many good variations--and there are so many great ones.
And as usual, Tom Pohlman has managed to do the painting I had hoped to do-- moody, full of juicy brushstrokes (hey Tom, this painting IS me loosening up--ha ha), although I would've never come up with the novel idea to add Mr. Poe in front.
It's been interesting, and very challenging, to paint subject matter outside of my usual work. I really like seeing what the other artists come up with, and it's been a great way to meet new artist friends.
