Title: "In Season"
This reminds me of Girl Guide camp in the
summer of 1982. We had such fun that year
and I did learn to canoe! The perspective
and coloration is wonderful here.
I know that Dion and her family just got
back from an Australian vacation so this
painting is depicting something she
experienced and saw there. Australia is
just going into their fall season, this is
a beautiful reminder of how bright and
lovely Australia is all year around.
I've never done a mandala, I don't
know how but I think they are really
pretty and the repetitive patterns
are quite meditative, which I think
is the point, lol. This one is lovely.
Debbie does a beautiful job of recreating
the beauty of spring flowers. These look
so delicate. Beautifully done!
Tracey one of the friends I mentioned
who lives in Australia, that's why
this challenge is "create your season"
instead of "create Spring". Tracey says
that hot soup always feels good as the
weather gets cold and I concur as even
though it's Spring here, it's still
bloody COLD and I LOVE soup for dinner
just to warm up! Love those bowls, Trace,
hope you find them when you're shopping!
|Artist: Minnemie||Comment:Minnemie painted two spectacular|
submissions for my challenge. I can't
get over how lovely they both are. I
know how difficult it is to paint a
white flower because they're not
usually actually white. Great work!
Comment:This is a lovely piece, under the tissue
the words say I am worthy. Terrie then
covered this piece with vellum and then
beaded it. I showed it this way to let
you see the exquisite detail!
|Artist: Lou Anne|
I absolutely love this piece, it's so
darn happy and sunshiny. I think you
did a spectacular job Lou Anne.

This artist said she was
thinking of both spring and
rain as she came up with this
very cool mermaid, I love how
artist's minds work! I also
love the zentangles as water,
it makes me miss them, maybe
I'll have to do some today!
Cindy's work uses those beautiful
light ethereal colors so as she
illuminates any subject it always
feel Springlike and pretty. She
has a lovely style.

This week's challenge is Coffee & Tea! You can do anything inspired by these two drinks. Draw the beans or a botanical of your favorite tea. Paint tea/coffee cups stacked precariously on one another, or collage your favorite brands of tea onto a postcard! How about tea-staining fabric and sewing up some pot holders or staining gift tags and drawing on the back so their each an original piece of art for your birthday friend. Get out your thinking cap and get creative with your drink of choice! Here are some cool examples...
Go ahead, draw a bottle
of iced tea like Tracey
did (she's addicted to
Arizona Iced Tea!)
|This guy, Cheeming Boey, |
draws amazing things on
styrofoam coffee cups!
|I just love the cherry|
blossoms as background
with the prominent teacup
by Laurel. So pretty.
|I love this sign by|
Ginger, make your love
of tea well known!
|How about inking a|
zentangle then tea
or coffee staining
it like Paula did?
|You could even do a|
collage, as an homage
to your loving a cuppa,
like Madeleine did.
|But then of course, you could just paint your very|
favorite coffee cups, the ones you share with friends,
just like Michelle did!
We'll talk later, I'll make hazelnut coffee, K? Hehehe.
You knew I would!
