Art Challenge

Welcome to the BAA Art Challenge.  Each quarter, we will supply a new original reference photo. Members can submit a piece of art that is based on it.  Of course, you can always go back and add a picture of yours to one of the previous challenges. Your finished work will appear on this page.  We want you to have fun and challenge your skills.  Use the reference photo as a starting point for your imagination.  Consider it a theme.  You can do anything ranging from copying the photo to creating an abstract picture somehow inspired by the Challenge photo. Photographers can submit a photo of theirs that fits the theme.  There are no rules and no judging involved here.
