Welcome to the Art Challenge. We will supply a new original reference photo each month and you produce a new piece of art based upon it. Your finished work will appear on this page. We want you to have fun and challenge your skills. Either copy the photo or change it in any way you wish according to your style and approach. Any size or medium. No judging.

At the December Holiday Meeting it is a BAA tradition to select one of our member artists to do the presentation. The 2019 honoree was Jacqueline Smith. Here's Jacqueline at work creating a lovely pastel landscape painting. Jacqueline also described many of the items she uses in her painting.
