Step Back 10 Feet and Squint

I have to say, I had a lot of fun creating this week's Pinterest inspired challenge item.  Here's the lovely inspiration:

...and here is mine:

Sorry...here's mine:
I call it:
From 10 Feet Away it Looks Pretty Good! Especially If You Squint!

From 5 feet it's still okay (squint harder!).

Yeah. Sigh.  My alternate title for this piece is:
Don't Quit Your Day Job
Sadly I totally flubbed the perspective on the road - but in my defense, I usually draw with a pencil (and get to erase mistakes)...this was all done freehand with a paintbrush.

Can I at least get a few points for mixing my own colours?


  1. Super jealous of your talents! I like it up close. It's like modern impressionism :D

  2. I like everything but the road better on your piece. Really. I really like the 'cliff' off the road. I felt like I was falling into your misdirection's deep hazel eyes - I mean off the cliff... I still want a tree or bird of my own for my next birthday.
