Here is my response to day 5 of Creativity Boot Camp. The word prompt for day 5 was "grow." I thought this one would be easy! Again, I wanted to challenge myself and not choose something easy. I had a rather difficult time getting the background of this painting just the way I wanted it, but I'm pleased with the result.
"Grow" is 5 by 7 on pastelbord, and I used a combination of soft pastels and pastel pencils.
Thank you Kathleen Young for allowing me to use your beautiful photograph!
