JUNE/JULY 2013 CHALLENGE
ABSTRACT!

Thank you to Tatiana Myers for hosting the 
previous April/May DPP Challenge

  The Blue Mountain (Der blaue Berg), 1908-09 
 Wassily Kandinsky (Russian, 1866-1944)

I am a representational painter, but have always had
a fascination with abstraction.  We have some excellent DPP Artists
(e.g., Linda McCloskey, Pat Koscienski and Sue Marrazzo)
who have fired that interest with their incredible work.
I am hoping that they will join us in this challenge!

The challenge for June/July is going to be to create an
abstract work.  I am going to post my journey step-by-step,
and encourage you to do this as well - or you can just post
your work once you have finished


If you are not sure where to start, here is a very 
good link that should provide some insight.
