Welcome to my Art Blog! I paint or draw most weekdays and sometimes finish a painting a day. I fondly call them my "Postcards from Paradise" because it's such a beautiful place the Lord made here for us.

December Challenge: Favorite Slogan or Saying

Suzanne Berry chose for us this month to paint our favorite saying, slogan or cliché. A few ideas came to mind but I settled on this one for the visual pun effect. A couple of the goals of our monthly Challenge is to have fun and do something we might not normally paint. I think we all did that this month!

Great challenge! What a creative group. I love to see how each one of you manage to come up with something creative. What talent!

Diana Moses Botkin said...

Being part of this Challenge month after month has been a great creative stimulus for all of us, I think. Every month I wonder if I can manage it!

Amazing work Diana, as always. Great idea as well! I love this. Happy Holidays!

Diana Moses Botkin said...

Vicki: Yes, let's celebrate staying with it!

Suzanne: I'm so glad you thought up this month's Challenge.

And now that our brains are thinking of more of these ideas, maybe we should do a few more... just for (more) fun.

A beautiful little painting. I will dream of finding it under the tree tomorrow.

Merry Christmas Diana.
