|Challenge #3 "Everyone's the Same"|
Elephants. I love them. Especially when they're all soft and cuddly. And pink!
The latest challenge in my art journaling class (Falling for You, by Moira Richardson) is called "Everyone's the Same." All the students were given the same black and white photograph that they had to use in their page.
Moira says, "The challenge is based on the idea that any group of artists given the same materials to work with will create a wide variety of different works." There were a few other stipulations for our page, such as using only two colors. But I forgot about that! Oops! Here's the original photo, on the right:
My journal page had been stirring around in my head for quite some time. I was just able to work on it this past weekend, and like usual, it grew into something larger than my original thought. I wanted to put the young girl (is that Moira?) and her brother on an elephant with the umbrella. The image actually came from a book I read by Hillary Clinton, where there is a photo of Hillary and Chelsea riding on top of an elephant in Nepal.
So my page didn't follow all the rules for the Challenge. But I love how it came out!
