Artist's Play Room #36

We're getting to the end of APR for 2012, we only have this week and next week, then APR will be taking a well deserved holiday. The Artist's Play Room will resume on December 29th with a theme appropriate to the new year. I'll probably only post anything a few times in December as I've realized I need some time off from the pressures of keeping all the proverbial balls in the air.

Anyway, this week our theme was CHRISTMAS, I was hoping to help you all get going on your cards, presents and general spirit of the season. We got some really great submissions and I"m thinking that you all have the makings of some great Christmas cards!!
Mary Walker Designs has done
a sweet Christmas card-like
painting of a homemade scene.
Susan has made a really
beautiful Christmas card
of an old homestead in
a rural setting, gorgeous.
My painting used a few
pine bows and those
shiny Christmas balls!
Twinkletoes has taken
a photo of her delicious
looking mincemeat jars.
Do you think she'll share?
Sharon has started making
her Christmas cards too
and aren't these bears
just the cutest??
Tracey wrote this post &
painted this for her
husband's birthday.
He does the ironing, what
a great husband!!
Gloria did some brilliant
cards using traditional
Christmas fare and
zentangles!! Cool!
Andrea has painted a
beautiful zendala
snowflake, I'm loving
the blues, gorgeous!
Currie has entered a
photo she took in 2009
of this angelic little boy
opening his present.
Darla has rendered this
simple yet powerful
line drawing of an angel.
Cindy has painted this adorable
showman with his fluffy
little bunny friend. She's giving
it away so go comment & win!
Janice has sketched this
lovely little bird that graced
her garden. She has an amazing
collection of photos of that garden.
Sandra has done a beautifully
traditional nut cracker
christmas card. So great.
Debbie has submitted a
gorgeous christmas angel.
I love angels in all their forms.
Arnoldo has created an
adorable little angel with
big eyes, so expressive.
Rita did some gorgeous
christmas balls and she's inspired
me to add sparkle to the
christmas cards I printed last night!
Stephanie has done a
brilliant job of making
faux gingerbread cookies.
They look delicious!
Molly has done up a
santa hat and warned us
to keep believing or
we'll get awful presents!

This coming week is Turkey Day in the USA!! Americans celebrate Thanksgiving this Thursday November 22nd so I thought since I missed doing art for our Canadian Thanksgiving in October, I'd subject you to a collection of turkey collages and Pilgrim construction paper hats this week in APR!! WooHoo, I can smell the turkey now! Go forth and do turkey art... (why do I think someone's gonna sketch their turkey leg dinner??)

Of course, if you live anywhere other than the USA feel free to stretch, cajole and utterly mangle this challenge into something that'll fit you. Have at it peoples!! (enjoy, it's the second last APR of 2012!!)

Oh, and let me wish all my American friends a very happy and delicious Thanksgiving. May all your turkey birds be fat and easy to catch! ;o)

  1. Hi Jenn,
    I must say again, I'm so happy I found you! It was so nice to see my little snowman showcased on your blog! My first link is more autumn than Thanksgiving...but I'm going to paint something else Thanksgiving themed and link it up also! So much fun!
    Hugs, Cindy

  2. Hi Jenn, although my painting this week is from last year, I think it is perfect for the challenge. I was thinking of either an abstract turkey, or a cornucopia, but you stole that one! Have a great week. I am glad we are taking a break, I tend to get frazzled over the holidays!

  3. Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving if they celebrate and a Happy Thursday in any case.



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