December’s Photos to Paint Challenge

I am leaving for Vienna today and thought I had better get next month’s Photos to Paint challenge! Before I introduce the December Photos to Paint challenge, I must say the owl entries for November were extraordinary. You folks did such a nice job on them and loved all the different styles and interpretations. December’s challenge is of little Saint Malo church near Estes Park, Colorado. It was hard to resist the fall color with an interesting stone church perched in the middle. According to Wikipedia, Pope John Paul II prayed at this church during his visit to Denver for World Youth Day in 1993. Afterwards, the chapel received his personal blessing and the Pope later hiked in the surrounding woods and spent some time at the Saint Malo Retreat Center. This photo has a fair amount of the massing done for you. Clouds, mountains, evergreens, scrub oak, a church and foreground. I also thought this would be a good challenge due to the nice light and shadow on the church and its interesting geometric shapes, which serves as a good drawing exercise.

Please use the form below to submit your painting by December 31st. Your picture should be a high-quality jpg image that is at least 480 pixels along its longest dimension at 72 pixels per inch.

Thanks as always for participating!
