The act of painting and the reaction to paintings is often an emotional one. But what would happen if you were required to paint an emotion? Especially one that is an uncomfortable one to engage in. Happiness and joy are everywhere but what about shame or discouragement? They are everywhere too but usually covered up or masked in some way. The challenge is to paint an emotion . It can be a positive or a negative one but see if you can go outside your comfort zone to an emotion you might not be aware that you carry with you. After saying that it feels odd to say "have fun!". Ha!
So no judgments...happy or sad it is all good just see if you can paint what you can "feel".
The challenge is to paint an emotion. I call the picture of my collie doing his happy rubbing ..Joy.
Please be sure to follow the spirit and the letter of the challenge.
For example, each submission must be painted after the challenge is posted.
