These Barnstormers poster endeavors increase in difficulty each year. In other challenges, my husband, who stars in the painting below and who is NOT a trained art professional, recently dissed my new fibers work in a stunning critique. "It looks like rags tied in knots on a thing. I don't like it."
Very descriptive! Very definitive!
He then went on to suggest,
"They need to be less abstract, more pictorial and generally more messed up." He did not say "messed".
You get the idea: a real challenge for the next in the series. Yes, a series.
