 2018 WOCP Painting Challenge

Each year our club, Rural Roses, has had a painting challenge. It inspires us to stretch our minds, think out of the box and paint. The winner of the challenge gets to make the rules for the following years challenge.

The challenge to be done by next September, will be Poppies on a Vase of your choice. Do your own techniques and see what each one can come up with. What you do to the vase or how you paint the poppies, is wide open.

They will be revealed at our next Christmas party - September 2018.
This challenge is open to all MN WOCP members.
All MN WOCP members are invited to the party.
