We are waiting for spring and the new Get Dusty competitions. The board has discussed a lot of possible challenges and has agreed on the following:

February - Portrait / Figure - challenge: Dance

We want one or several dancing figures. That can be ballet, ballroom dance, ethnic dances. Step or modern dance like Hip Hop is also possible.

March - Landscape - challenge: Cityscape, day or night

Your entry may contain human figures, but only as part of the scenery. Remember, this is a landscape challenge!

April - Animals - challenge: On the bird table

A painting of one or more local wild birds that visit our gardens. It’s fine if they are perched on a twig or sitting on the ground; a bird table is not essential for this challenge.
