Impressionism, Woman with a Laptop

WEEK 7 theme: Focus Pocus (10 feb- 16 feb)
ODC:Out of Focus

Impressionism, Woman with a Laptop

So, I think I voiced somewhere in this group my doubts about this week's theme. How can I get a good photo but blurry on purpose? I know it is doable (I probably have one or two on my stream) but it is very difficult. What adds to the challenge is that the theme states that "nothing is (should be) in focus".
I was almost already thinking to myself that, after two solid weeks of doing the theme every single day, I might skip this one.

But, the next day, the challenge was still on mind. I felt that I have a semblance of an idea in my head how to make it work. But the idea itself was out of focus.

Until [http://www.flickr.com/photos/zandrsmum/] (extremely thankful to you) posted a link to the great photo stream from [http://www.flickr.com/photos/46625367@N08]. Only then my idea clicked. I remembered in the 6th or 7th grade when the art teacher was explaining a certain technique of painting for our next assignment. At the time, he did not name it but I later discovered he was talking about "impressionism" (we just had to do it with Pastel).

I would have loved to take a walk sometime today to try to take some photos outside. Unfortunately, an extremely busy (and rainy) day prevented that. So I had to try something at home.

I'm curious to see what people think.
