Challenge Painting: Jefferson Memorial

SOLD to a collector in Maine

Jefferson Memorial, painting by Debbie Grayson Lincoln

This is the "challenge" painting from the blog "Different Strokes From Different Folks". A photo is posted every 2 weeks and participating artists paint it and the blog hostess displays it with links. It's quite a bit of work for her to keep this blog up, and I have been mightily impressed with the quality of painters participating. Check it out at the link above.

I love the way you painted that group of trees on the left. It is so hard to get those "light holes" look natural and you hit it just right. The overall blue of the painting is so lovely and makes for a very calm and serene scene. I'm not sure that is a realistic depiction of Washington these days, but we can pray! I was tempted to name my submission "Jefferson turns over in his grave"!lol
