This painting challenge was presented by Daily Paintworks and fellow daily painter Robin Weiss.  She posted a very detailed photo of a city, the challenge was to paint it as loose as possible.  You can find many others renditions here:

I love seeing the variety of artist's paintings of the same subject.

Thank you Mary. This was a lot of fun. I am not so afraid of all those geometric shapes as I used to be. I used to dread them. The more I forced myself past my comfort zone the less intimidating it has become. A key that helped me was to constantly compare my lines to the edges of my panel. Sounds so simple and is now, but I had a "duh" moment when I finally remembered that simple rule. :D
