I guess I officially have something to say... I really, really DON'T want anyone to feel like they "don't do that kind of thing" when it comes to any theme. An artist thinking "that's not my kind of theme, I can't make my art fit" would really make me unhappy. I encourage you to be bold with your thinking, use your imagination. The line of thinking doesn't have to make sense to me, how you got from my theme to your art, it has to work for YOU. For instance, this week's theme is "RESOLUTIONS". Maybe all your resolutions are private or you don't do resolutions. All you have to do is think about what the theme makes you think about and feel and go with that. Do you think about a colour or an object when you think about the theme?? Follow your creativity, all I ask is you give me some idea of where you're going with your art so I can comment effectively. Sound good?? :o)
Ok, now that I got that off my chest, I feel muuuch better. I think RESOLUTIONS will be a fun theme, I have many ideas running around my brain already. Here are a few ideas to help you along...
|Get Healthy||Open New Doors||More ART!!!|
|Be More Creative||Exercise!||Meditation Box: Be Calm|
