The challenge due in October for studioQ, chosen by Andrea, is a painting by Georgia O'Keeffe, "Autumn Trees - the Maple", painted in 1924.
My interpretation got away from me. I had two fuchsia and black pieces that I had painted with thickened dye several years ago. I had used bits of them in other pieces, but I decided to feature them in this piece. So I started with strips of solid blue and the dye-painted pieces, and it just went on from there. Fun to do, but the result is a bit chaotic.

I've really enjoyed the Masterpiece challenge. And Jay and I have been showing off our pieces at the North Texas SAQA meetings. And now our SAQA group has started a similar challenge. For our first month, Shelley chose "Harran II" by Frank Stella, painted in 1967.
I loved the little white line separating the colors. So I decided to feature it in my interpretation.
