Andy Skinner and I are excited to share our completed pieces for Dare to Create 3!   I decided to take the numerous suggestions to attempt the master of  flowers Georgia O’Keeffe.  This is kind of like a singer deciding to sing Celine or Whitney Houston because you know it will be nowhere near be like the original but I am please find discover Tracy O’Keefe’s and take on her famous Tiger Lilly……..Dare3

This was my favorite Dare to Create Challenge to date!  It really made me dig deep and get out of my creative mojo funk.  Plus it was fun to learn more about an artist I greatly admire.  Take it away Andy…..
