They've just switched to the new Blogger interface. I haven't figured how to do anything yet!!! AAAAggHHH!

This is my contribution to The Cropping Challenge at DPW posted by Rita Kirkman.
Rita is a SUPER artist! She posted a photo showing a large area with way too much information. Her instructions were: " I challenge you to simplify this photo by picking a part to paint by cropping it out"
I hope they don't revoke my artistic license for this. I like working from a close crop. But not much color was evident in the crop. So I had to do a lot of inventing. It is actually my favorite way to work. I came up with a rule ( I think it's my own, at least the wording is)..."Don't let a photograph get in the way of your painting."
Thank you for this challenge, Rita! I am a great admirer of your work!
