Walk This Way

This is my latest entry into Karin Jurick's Different Strokes challenge.  I loved the overhead perspective which created an abstract feel to the figures.

I tend to have total brain blocks when trying to name a painting.  I'll think, and ponder, and finally agonize, hoping that a witty and appropriate title will suddenly pop into my head.  I usually wind up disappointed, with a splitting headache.   To make this ever so much easier on myself (and since I'm running low on Aleve), I decided to use popular song titles to name the works.  'Walking In Rhythm' was a 1975 hit by The Blackbyrds.

My Muse is out for a stroll.  To musicality, and beyond!

Love your technique on this entry. Great color and movement going on here. Also think your "Sun Dog" is terrific!

And a nod to Aerosmith, too!
This turned out really well!

Hi, Lisa, I really like your entry to the DSFDF challenge. I waited until I saw quite a few entries and then decided to go very loose for my own. Which is hard for me to do. And I mention it because you say you need to loosen up, too.

I read your last several posts. I really look forward to seeing more of your entries to DSFDF!

I look forward to seeing more.-Kristen

I like your bold color shapes. They give your work its uniqueness and make it pop up among others.

I like your version of the challenge. The tight cropping works really well and I like the painting style.

Nice painting! Like your style. Voted for the gallery, not garage sale. Nice way to name a
painting, will have to remember that when I'm
not able to come up with a title.
