Art by Committee ~ Shorter Than I Remember

shorter_thanI_remember_RobertaBairdThis is a piece I’ve been working on here and there for James Gurney’s Art by Committee. It’s a monthly art prompt that he hosts on his blog, Gurney Journey. I really like to participate when I can as it shows another side of my work.

You can see all of the other entries on November 15th. Be warned…. once you get there, you won’t want to leave! His blog is chocked full of valuable information and inspiring examples of his work! You might even consider buying his new book Imaginative Realism. Check it out!
