The bear on the right looks berry hungry. Lol hidden.
The perspective is wrong on the bowls, and the chef hat just looks weird, but good rendition.
I agree Bob,I didn't expect much out of this one or my entry "Family Portrait".The only one I thought would be a contender was "Snausage Time".Was hoping I could muster a wood,but got dropped down to 5th again.That 4th to 5th thing gets really disappointing.I agree overall there are things I need to work on.Ill keep trying.Thanks Splat and Luciano too
Many wonderful Christmas carols were written during the Renaissance era. However, there are virtually no Renaissance paintings showing Christmas celebrations in those days. Why?
Give a Christmas theme to old paintings, drawings, or statues. Dress up the characters in paintings (statues, drawings) as Santa or elves, add candy canes, Christmas tree and socks to the paintings, add snow, presents, etc.

Today, December 1, is the official end of autumn and the beginning of winter. Are you looking forward to lots of snow this season?
To mark the start of winter, let's "winterize" any famous paintings by adding snow to them and adding warm winter clothes to the characters in the paintings. Adding snow is a must, adding winter clothes is optional.

This Saturday will be the 117th birthday of Belgian surrealist painter Rene Magritte. His surrealist paintings are more than just visually impressive; they are frequently thought-provoking. His "The Treachery of Images" series of paintings shows realistically drawn objects titled "Ceci n'est pas…" (French for "This is not…"). His famed image of a pipe is captioned "Ceci n'est pas une pipe" ("This is not a pipe"). As Magritte himself stated: "The famous pipe. How people reproached me for it. And yet, could you stuff my pipe? No, it's just a representation, is it not? So if I had written on my picture 'This is a pipe,' I'd have been lying!"
Magritte got a job designing wallpaper at a wallpaper factory, and as a sideline designed posters and advertisements. His first one-man exhibition, in 1927 in Brussels, was a flop, the art critics hating all 61 pieces shown. Magritte gained real fame in 1960 (shortly before his death in 1967) when his paintings influenced pop art and culture.
To celebrate the 117th birthday of Rene Magritte, photoshop any of his paintings. Some examples are: show how he would have created his works in the modern days, what people or objects he would choose, etc.
(If you use any of his nude sources, please cover the models in bikini to make them safe for work).

Creation Museum in Kentucky shows full size
dinosaurs models on Noah's Ark and claims they coexisted with humans. Children ask many question at this exhibition, e.g. "Were there dinosaurs when you were a kid, dad?"
In this contest you are asked to show the evidence that dinosaurs co-existed with humans by including them in works of art - paintings, drawings, or statues.

On May 20, 142 years ago during the Gold Rush years, Levi Strauss designed and made blue trousers from strong sailcloth with pockets strengthened by copper rivets. He called them
"jeans" and designed them for miners who were complaining that their cotton trousers were tearing too easy.
Miners liked the jeans so much that Strauss immediately founded the first company to manufacture the jeans. This is how blue jeans were born as we know them.
To celebrate the 142nd birthday of the blue jeans, add jeans to any works of art (paintings, drawings, statues, etc.) one way or another. You can also use other clothing (skirts, jackets, hats, etc.) made from denim. Let's show that jeans were popular through all the history of mankind.
