December Monthly Challenge Recap

The painting for this month is a lot less about the color than it is about the form. I chose it for exactly that reason. But I have to say that I was quite surprised when I spied Miss Brandi's brilliant color palette. I really hadn't seen the patchwork floor or the hanging chandeliers until I saw what she presented to us. Proves that I need to look a little closer!

I loved seeing how this was translated by you. There were some really strong structural pieces created, as well as playing with the light and the dark and the soaring buttresses. Isn't it marvelous to see what so many different creative minds can do with the same inspiration? Please take a look at the following slideshow to see everyone's submissions for December.

This challenge was such a joy to participate in. It held special meaning to me, and I felt inspired immediately! I visited all the blogs posted and was so impressed that each of us focused on a different part of the painting/architecture. So many interesting viewpoints and resulting designs! Finally, I have to agree that the music and video was like the perfect dessert after a wonderful meal! I shared it all over the place! Many thanks to all!
