Sometimes I just want to paint something whimsical, something that lets me experiment with color. I love the pink and blue patio furniture colors together. Makes me want to go out and paint a chair blue for my patio.

I think I've mentioned the Rookiepainter site before. It's a really neat painter's challenge site. Challenges are so good for painters because they force us to paint things we wouldn't usually paint. I've only entered one of their challenges so far, but one of their earlier challenges contained a photo that knocked me out. A bowl on a shelf. So simple, but I loved it. I was too late to enter that challenge, but I couldn't resist painting from the photo anyway. In fact, I did several versions. This one is on Yupo synthetic paper. I hope to have time to enter more of the challenges soon. Check out their site if you can, because there are some wonderful painters that participate. http://www.rookiepainter.blogspot.com
