June Challenge 6x6x2

M Collier "The Early Bird..." 6x6 Oil on Hardboard SOLD

Jelaine Faunce "With the Worm" 6x6 Oil on Canvas

We’re back to our challenges. The subject this time was a gummy worm.

The little bird in my painting is a German wind up tin toy. When you wind it up its beak opens and closes while it turns its head, sings a song and flaps its wings. Busy little thing. I have been trying to get this guy into a painting for a while.

The last few months Jelaine hasn’t been feeling well and we decided to put off any new challenges until she was back to her usual sassy self. SHE’S BACK!!! I miss our monthly brain tease and am looking forward to getting back to it.
