Default July Challenge #2 - Artist Inspiration

In fairness to all members that participate, can everyone PLEASE ensure that you read all the rules for this challenge so that you can claim your challenge points fairly. Thank you!

This month I am lucky to be hosting one of my favorite challenges, the Artist Inspiration Challenge. With this challenge, w have pieces of art inspire our layouts.

In my search of the Internet for inspiration, i found an artist named Derek Kaplan. The bright colors of his abstract works immediately called to me. So for this month’s challenge, I want you to create a page inspired by his work.

Here is a link to his website. (If you are anything like me, this is going to be a hard choice. I have fallen in love with his work.)


You may choose either an abstract or storm image to inspire you. When you post the your page in this thread, please include a link to the image that inspired you.

Here’s my page.

This is the Derek Kaplan art that inspired it. (Inspiration definitely doesn't mean duplication. )

- Create a page inspired by the art of Derek Kaplan. https://www.derekkaplan.com
- Please use 80% Oscraps products.
- Please make sure you credit all products used on your page.
- Your page must be posted in the Challenge 2 gallery by midnight 31 July 2018 and linked back to this thread. HOW TO LINK LAYOUT TO CHALLENGE THREAD.
- And do not forget to update the CURRENT MONTH'S TRACKING THREAD to be eligible for your coupon.

Lots of beautiful art to inspire.
I selected "Opt.17.17 Anchorless":

And here is my interpretation: ATC 2018-067 Abstract Painting

The quote by Derek Kaplan was perfect because it was exactly how I created my ATC - a series of random acts using two photographs, paper, a clipping mask and various blending modes in PSE.

Umm, see what, I started with this paint for inspiration and it still can be seen at the background, if if you narrow your eyes , but I'm afraid I gone much too away. These days I have problem to follow the orders. So I wouldn't count any points for now. Please, Cindy, see it and let me know do you accepted it. Thank you for your time! And I really don't mind to do another if you think it's not fit, just let me know.
