Last week's challenge in The Artist's Play Room was Coffee & Tea. I asked you to create art that used either one of these drinks. Sketch beans, paint cups, tea or coffee stain something, go crazy! We got some Fabulous submissions this week, here's mine and yours.
|Title: "Join Me Over Hazelnut Coffee?"|
|Terri of Morning Dewdrops emailed|
me, apologizing that she didn't
realize that APR was themed. Well,
this is an excellent teaching
example! you don't ever HAVE to do
the challenge, you can put up any
piece of art you want or use the
theme as a jumping off place, your
choice, I'm just glad to see you!
Her hair reminds me of a beautiful
peacock's tail! Lovely.
|Cindy of Cottage Remnant always delivers|
great art, I love the three dimensional
illusion of this piece. What a beautiful
and special birthday or mother's day card
this would make!
|Tracey always makes me laugh|
with her blog posts but this
is the first time her art made
me laugh! I just HAD to look up
teapots to see the actual one
online. What a funny pot, for
|Kim of IMGirlwithoutwings made|
the cutest bookmark on the planet!
I especially love the play on
words, "A Moment OF ClariTEA."
|Diane made two, no THREE pieces this|
week about TEA so I had the privilege
of picking my favorite, it was a hard
choice, but her it is... Thanks Diane!
|Vonny was lamenting that she's not sure|
she likes this piece, the background and
vase frustrated her. I'm blown away, I
it's totally spectacular, I want to reach
out and pick up the cups!
|Tracy of The Domestic Gourdess made this|
tiny carved gourd cup, what a wonderfully
sweet little submission. Alas, we coffee
hounds are losing another one to the dark
side... Tea drinkers! (I love Earl Gray
tea too but hazelnut coffee is my crack!)
|Katja has penned this wonderful sketchbook|
addition, a simple cup and teapot in a
lovely blue. She says her fave tea is Earl
Gray, hey ME TOO!!
|Leslie submitted an awesomely lovely|
piece. I just love the coloration of this.
I can't believe this is a collage using
|Andrea of Falling Ladies has done|
a beautiful tea centered mandala.
These are so beautiful and as I
understand, very meditative. I'd
love to learn how to create these
beautiful art pieces. Such a lovely
|Gloria has painted a spectacular piece|
in oils. I must say,I LOVE this painting.
There's something so deep about oils, they
have weight. I love that about them and this
piece is something truly special, I'm so
glad you joined Gloria, I'm a new FAN.
|Debbie at Crafty Moose has painted a|
happy teapot with one of those lovely
blooming flowers, I've always wanted to
try those, I think you totally need a
glass teapot to truly appreciate the
beauty though. Thanks for submitting!
|Minnemie of Cripple Pencil has|
used her pens and pencils for
great purpose today. I have such
awe for those of you with the
confidence to write on your artwork.
I wish I could do that, I think
it looks so cool, I'm just afraid
I'll spell something wrong or
mess up somehow. This is a very
|Elizabeth's contribution this|
week is a lovely collage, I'm
especially loving what she did
with the spoon, great piece.
