Boy there is a lot of pressure when you are the one to submit the reference photo for a painting challenge. Self imposed ,I know, but felt none the less. I am excited to see everyone else's rendition. I need to learn how not to be so literal in my painting, so it will be good for me to see how all of my fellow artist express themselves. I am sure I will learn alot from all of you. To see the original photo that I took on one of my wedding anniversaries go to Virtual Sketch Date.
