Okay -- abstractions continue. This time the assignment was to take something and change it up so that it is no longer recognizable -- hence the title for this piece. There were thumbnail sketches and everything and it took considerably longer than any of us expected. I discovered that it's difficult to look at something as a model and then purposely not draw it. At least it is for me. The funny part is that I was feeling the painting was too stiff -- and I'm the one who is always getting hammered for not painting loose enough. The instructor says this works. I'll take her word for it.
