Vanguard Artists Challenge - Abstract to Realistic and Realistic to Abstract

Thanks to  Aileen for this successful and fun challenge. I say fun, but I found it so difficult that I aborted my effort three-quarters of the way through the painting! Even the chairwoman, Aileen, confessed to finding it difficult to step outside of the box and do something she normally didn't paint. However, all who participated must have found a way because all of these were just super. The consensus was that using the format for each artist to describe their process for their challenge painting was appreciated by all.

I think we agree that these challenges are both fun and inspiring. Great job you all did!
