"Interpret This" Group Wrap Up

My year of "IT" challenge pieces

Over this past weekend each of us members in the "Interpret This" online group wrote a final post summarizing our participation in this year long challenge to interpret a photograph each month.  Go here to read an overview of what the challenge entailed.  Then scroll down to read the individual posts.  It's interesting to see the particular piece each of us chose as the one that best exemplifies our year's work and to read about discoveries (both personal and technique-wise) as well as how this experience impacts current or future work.  The comments at the end of each post makes for an interesting read, as well.

If ever you receive an invitation to participate in a group that offers the opportunity to stretch outside your comfort zone, I advise you to take it.  It's a chance to go in directions that you may have not considered if it weren't for the challenge from an outside source.  I'm glad I accepted this one.

PS:  One of the members, Karen, had to withdraw due to time constraints.  Go here to see her submissions.

It must have been an interesting challenge for each of you Nellie and a lovely group to work with. Thanks for the links - I'm off to explore them. Lovely to see your interpretations once more.

I know what you mean about challenges, Nellie. I wouldn't get anything done if I didn't have a deadline or challenge facing me. You did good, kiddo!

I've followed you ladies all year and was totally amazed at the pieces that were produced. Congrats to all of you for sticking with the monthly challenges. It was fun to watch.

An amazing grouping of work Nellie!
I forgot how much I loved the dolls that you did.

I am doing a bi-monthly challenge with my sister just for fun and to keep up the discipline. I will post those as I go along but not until we have our deadlines since she follows my blog.
