Handed an Art Challenge

This past week, a co-worker presented me with an art challenge. She had a black and white photocopy of a photograph. It’s a baby picture of her sister.


“Sure!” I said.

Then I got home with it and went … “ummmm… now what?”

Of course, I wanted to make it really cool and do it in watercolour. Several attempts were made at printing it onto watercolour paper, but my printer kept jamming.

Then I tried several techniques of transferring the image to watercolour paper. Ugh, no good.

Then I gave my head a shake. My co-worker was not expecting a masterpiece. She simply wanted to experience the joy of having the image brought to life.

So, I brought her sister’s baby picture to life.
