Artist's Play Room #27

Well, we're into the twenty seventh week of The Artist's Play Room. I'm so thrilled by the amount of talent displayed every week on my blog. I appreciate all your loyalty to APR and your weekly diligence to continue to participate with enthusiasm. If any of you lovely people have suggestions that you'd like to see as a theme in the new year of 2013, I'd be thrilled to hear from you. Just leave me a comment or slip me an email because I can always use great ideas. Ok, let me show you some spectacular art from this week's theme of "JUICY". I loved all your interpretations.
Tracey, you've done some
damn good looking juicy
gum, I so totally WANT a
piece right now. I can even
smell that distinctive smell.
Twinkle has been really
innovative and used actual
fruit to color this paper to
make the strawberry. I
bet it smells great!
Sandee has done a cheeky
take on our theme, a Juicy
looking cupid, lol. She
sure made me smile.
I did a macro strawberry but
not as creatively as twinkle. I
just used plain old watercolor
pencils, water and pens.
Neesie's spectacular silk
painting hung over her
bar when she lived in
her old house. Gorgeous
and totally juicy!
Victoria has done some
beautiful photographs to
showing the season change
which she thinks of as
 juicy changes.
Currie did a collage painting
with the words "juicy delicious
luscious Mangos" I love mangos
so I totally agree their juicy!
Rita has done a textured semi
abstract and the paint at the
bottom depicts flowers in
all their colorful juicy glory.
Gloria has used her juicy
paints (silks and twinks) to
color in this wonderful
zentangle, very cool.
Minn has painted some
seriously juicy looking
carrots and I totally agree,
carrots are juicy, I have
them everyday with lunch!
...and speaking of totally
juicy looking, Von has
painted some kick ass
strawberries, putting my
macro to shame, wow Von.
Alice has used zentangles
to do an underwater
drawing, the juicy under-
sea beauty.
Bonnie has shown us a
huge number of juicy
sketchbook pages, what
prolific work.
Fifi has done a lovely
woman's face with a
pretty saying, "you are
deeply loved."
Terrie has painted a
totally juicy pear, adding
my favorite color as
shadow, turquoise!
Teri has rendered an adorable
piece that reminds one of
childhood. I'm loving that
pink color Teri, well done.
Arnoldo has done several juicy
tags this week. All these lovely
and juicy fruits make me
want to go make a fruit salad!

This week's theme is "in your own backyard". No, I don't particularly mean a garden or plant or garden tools, (although that would be fine if that's what inspires you). What I mean is, what do you see that makes you want to be artistic when you look out there? For instance, this week I'll finally be drawing my mom's favorite little bridge that's outside our apartment building. It's a serene and beautiful landscape that meanders all over a couple of acres (with three buildings on it, surrounded by mature trees.) It's really beautiful and I have been meaning to render a drawing for mom for months. Well, this is the week I finally do what I promised.

Here are some inspiring pieces of art, the view from other people's backyards. Hopefully they'll help lead you in a great direction but feel free to let your imagination soar. And remember, you don't have to be great, just create!

  1. I do think I got a hang of this now! :D Do I?
    This one is not a new one, but I think it fits for the callenge anyway.

  2. Just about the time I was thinking I understood this enough to give it a hird try my hip started acting up and it finally won. I am two weeks out of surgery and these crutches are kicking my behind. Prayerfully I'll be up and running soon. All of these 'juicy' pieces are great, funny how it reminded at least three of you about strawberries.

  3. We recently had a scarecrow festival where I live and this is the one i made and it sat in my garden for two weeks. The children in the area loved it and it gave the adults a giggle too.

  4. Hi Jenn -- Hope you are doing good on this glorious Sunday afternoon. Enjoying some of the sites on your blog. Thanks so much Terri

  5. My backyard extends way beyond the boundaries of my home. What a great theme Jenn. Hugs xx

  6. love this theme ' my backyard' and can't wait to do this! ( it's on my list for being creative today!)

  7. My backyard also extends beyond home boundaries - love to share my georgeous bay walk with you all with my painting!
    (I tried to change/ delete the old link but couldn't - sorry 'bout that)

  8. I went with my literal backyard, an apple from my tree that I view from my kitchen window.
    There is some lovely work here!

  9. My post explains my (unfinished) monitor lizard - no I don't live in Africa! Love your bridge by the way Jenn. And the turtle story and pics are wonderful!


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