Andy Skinner and I are up for another Dare to Create Challenge.  It hit me we need to draw inspiration from the Artists who came before us………..Monet, Van Gogh, Cezanne, Dali, Warhol, Rembrandt and make it our own!  So here is the third edition of Dare to Create.  An Artist inspired painting.  It can be ANY artist so we get to think out of the box. (And no I am not picking Andy Skinner so don’t ask Andy).  I already tried that!.


It is our impression of an artist of our choosing.  What do you think Skinner…….are you up to the challenge?  Let’s bring the colors and inspiration from those who came before us in the Skinner-Weinzapfel way!  We would love to hear your suggestions!  Leave a comment let us know which Artist (ANY ARTIST!) you would like us to try.

DecoArt asked Andy and I what we wanted to giveaway and yet again came through with a prize to blow you away!!  We will pick a random winner from the blog comments to win this FABULOUS prize:
