I joined them for the challenges and the opportunity to get feedback from people that I don't know. It is always hard to tell what a friend really think.
The first challenge I thought I try is the "The Whole Cat and Kaboodle Challenge", but instead of painting the cat, I painted the alternativ, a picture of cat toys. Not many have done that. Not saying that I will not paint the cat, but the toys are more "me". The picture I got to work from is this one. I cropped it and used some artistic freedom. I wanted it to be my style. Hope you like it. I had a lot of fun. But first, here is the original.
