This past week we got together to chat, catch up and laugh about our time on Monhegan and to dream about this coming summer. So getting into the spirit as we sit in the middle of snow covered winter, I suggested a challenge. CA does watercolors and ink drawings and CH does oils and I do block prints. I suggested we each pick a famous painting and choose from the selection - like a raffle - and then winner is the painting selected. We then have about a month to paint or copy in our style. The gals brought their selections over, and I commandeered Tom to make the selection. I chose playing cards to represent each of our pieces, Tom suggested Ace, Two and Three. Each card representing the alphabetical letters of the three of us in this particular order: Ace for CC, Two for CH and Three for NT (me), he shuffled the three cards many times. (and he did not see all the submissions either, so he had no preference over one image or another)
Here is the winning painting...
Carol Ann's painting by Robert Henri (wooded path) I think we hiked through this path!
