Artist's Play Room #25

Hello again, we've finished another week of APR and are about to start another. Before I get to this week's theme, let's go through the terrific entries to last week's theme of "What's Your Inspiration?". It was quite wonderful reading about all your thoughts on what makes you want to create art. So many takes on this week's theme, and it seems everyone actually appreciated the "push" to think about the topic. Without further ado, here's this week's artwork...
Twinkletoes did a tag
showing some of the
people and art that
inspires her.
Tracey did two huge
tea mugs, she says
things around her &
tea inspire her to make art.
Victoria has done a beautiful
painting that makes her
think of nature, magic
and creation.
Although Von was lamenting
that she's not sure what
inspires her, I think right now
she's inspired by cute fur!! ;o)
I'm inspired by so many things
but Tracey's quote right now
is so helping me learn what
kind of artist I want to be.
Gloria is inspired by so
many things, including
new lessons and art supplies.
This painting is the result!
Currie is inspired by her
process, creating is
inspirational to her because
it reminds her she is an artist.

Serena is inspired, among other
things, nature, as you can see in
this lovely hibiscus. I've wanted to
do one, I think I will!

Lisa is inspired by layers,
whispers and hints of what
lies beneath. She takes pleasure
in painting over layers, creating
a history in the painting.
Gina is inspired by the
fact that she can put what
is in her head onto paper
and make it come out great!
Darla has done a fairy, she
is inspired by art challenges
that stretch her skills and
give her new ideas.
Tracy is inspired
by her own imag-
ination which she
lets run wild!
Terrie is inspired by both
books and people from
the blogosphere. Go over to
see her pretty artwork!
Alicia and her husband are
inspired by their organic
finds that they burn and
paint up to sell.
Neesie is inspired by her
bloggy artist friends &
her daughter who
painted this painting.
Arnoldo is inspired by God and his beautiful family

  1. I've been traveling and haven't been able to participate... but I've planned out art from every theme I've missed. I'll be doing them in the next couple weeks, along with keeping up with the challenges now that I'm home again.

  2. Hey Jenn -- I've been so busy this summer; I haven't been around in a while, glad to join y'all again. I did a lot of traveling this summer. How about you? Great News on Featuring. My favorite color is pink. I'm creating art tomorrow and I'm so excited; between Pinterest, Twitter to my blog and a new look, I'm teched out!! Glad for Artist's Play Room Blessings Terri

  3. Such beautiful entries each week..loved your leaning tower and loved each of them..all so unique ! The next theme looks fab! I look forward to it!

  4. Gee Jenn, I wonder what colour you will be doing (he he).

  5. You're right - there's a wealth of variety and talent represented last week - and look at all those inspiration sources! Now this week - fave color - hmmmm, that sure leaves the field wide open, doesn't it? I just have to get my brain to settle....settle. :)

  6. Gorgeous inspiration from last week. And I'm loving the color in tomato red...xx


  8. I like this! I´m now a follower! See you!

  9. While my eye is generally attracted to Granny Smith apple green, it is NOT a favorite when I paint. (Not sure why not... just isn't.) My brush tends to gravitate strongly toward the combination of Burnt Sienna and Prussian Blue instead!

  10. I really love all colors, but I picked my absolute favorite for this challenge. I also combined it with last week's challenge for inspiration since I didn't finish in time! :)

  11. Darn! I linked the wrong post! While I do like grey very much... it's not what I did for the challenge. :-(

  12. Scraping in jUSt under the wire this week.
    My favourite colour and one of my favourite tags by virtue of the sunlight catching the beads and the shadow it casts under the large butterfly.
    Some awesome works of art around here again this week. Thanks for the challenge Jenn. :0)

  13. Wow, lots of people this week! So nice to see. I hope to get around to everyone. I always love color, but couldn't pick one, so at the last minute did a greeting card using my favorite colors. Thanks again, Jenn for suggesting a prompt to inspire us.

  14. Phewph...made it Jenn,
    Sorry it's the last minute AGAIN! ;D
    I've got so much visiting to do but loving the idea of catching up with everyone and all their art!
    You're doing a brilliant job of keeping me and my mojo on track...he's so busy he hasn't thought about moving on again!
    Have a wonderful weekend whatever you have planned ~ enjoy :D

  15. I love all colors, so I used them all. Can't wait to look at everyone's entries. Blessings!

  16. Well, this week it is RED! But that could change at any moment...


Please leave me a comment, I've sure missed hearing from you!
