Cloud Gate in Millennium Park Chicago - Original Pastel

Well Karin Jurick has done it again with a challenge for all of us artist! When I first saw "The Bean" after Karin posted the reference picture, I just stared at it wondering what in the world had landed but soon became intrigued. I haven't been to Chicago's Millennium Park to see "Cloud Gate" created by British artist Anish Kapoor in person, but from the photos it looks spectacular! There should be some interesting takes on this week's challenge - be sure to take a look.

Hi Karen, I think you did a wonderful job on what looks to be a tough subject. I like your take on it better than any I saw on Karin's site. I may wait until next week to see what she comes up with.

Well, you surely did do it justice. What a fine job. This was no easy image, so pat yourself on the back.

Hi Barb! What a nice compliment. I really hope you join in on the fun. Thanks again!

Dianne thank you so much! It wasn't as easy as I thought it would be and was glad I did a couple of small sketches of it first before attempting it. Thanks! It was fun to put my spin on it.
