Imperial Challenge

Found a "challenge" on Daily Paintworks; a photo Carol Marine had taken in St.Augustine of an old Chrysler Imperial. Decided to give it a try and really enjoyed interpreting this photo and making it mine!  I have been admonished by some purists NOT to use any photo reference that wasn't my own. Well, it's a new year, I'm being flexible and doing some new things. Feeling good.


  1. I say YES to all types of photos. This is the 21st century. Have fun with those works that folks have put out there. You made it yours, and I'm working on mine too! (You're just a faster painter than I!)

  2. Great job! Isn't it fun to find a challenge and work on it? Some photos are better than others and some just speak to the artist, so take the photos you like and have fun. It's all a learning experience. I'm looking forward to the next DPW challenge.

    Thank you for your comment on my blog!

  3. Thanks Linda! Did you start the new challenge? It looks daunting to me.....I'm adding you to the blogs that I follow!
