I’m happy to report that Winter at the Moors, II was just awarded first place for a November monthly challenge at pmp (Paint-My-Photo). The goal of the challenge was to paint a White Christmas Challenge based on a reference image from one of the photographers.
I was thrilled to learn the news. In my case I used a photograph taken by Elaine Cross of a dusk winter scene she took while at the Moors in the UK. It was a fabulously cold and snowy scene. The oil pastels were a perfect medium for this scene – I posted the painting here before, here it is if you haven’t seen it.
I been gone for a several days, celebrating Thanksgiving holiday and taking a small break from my blog. I’m back and have missed reading everyone’s posts – I’ll be catching up over the next few days.
Thank you to all my blogging friends – I have much to be grateful for. My thoughts are with you as we enter into the holiday season, however you celebrate – best wishes to you and yours. Mary
