March is Here!

March, glorious March! That means spring is just around the corner! Woohoo! It is also the beginning of a new month at The School of Scrap! Please come join me in Art Class and try the first assignment!
Ok, students, for this month's first assignment, we'll be focusing on an Oil on Canvas painting by French Impressionist Painter, Camille Pissarro, who was a key member of the French Impressionist Group. I have selected Hillside of the Hermitage, which is pictured below for you to use for inspiration. Please remember that you may use as much or little as you like for inspiration... color, content, shape, whatever. After all, you're artists! Just mention what you used for inspiration in your description!
There is a catch, however. Since this is March, I would like your layout to be about something that makes you feel Lucky. You do NOT have to use the word Lucky on your layout. Lucky, Thankful, Grateful, or even no such word will do. It's totally up to you. Here's the painting:

Below is my layout using Hillside of hte Hermitage as inspiration. I've taken the color green from the layout, and the rows on the hill reminds me of a rainbow, so I took that, too. I feel lucky to have my fabulous kids!
I can't wait to see what you all come up with for this assignment! It is worth 100 Art points, and some amount of school bucks, too!
