Artist Challenge 2018- Making us Stronger together

 

Quiet Spring Dream

I would like to devises a weekly art challenge, or as I like to think of them, a humble encouragements. We’ll call it a challenge as that’s language that many of us are used to, since they are everywhere these days. But think of it as an invitation if that feels less arduous and wearing! This is for everyone!

Making us Stronger together

These challenges are aimed at making it easier to connect with other artists and kindred spirits.

The added bonus is that it’s designed to build your ‘story’ as an artist. It’ll help you clarify aspects of your own process, what works and what doesn’t, and hopefully make it easier to talk about your work and motivations. People love to know more about the person behind the art – this will give them a glimpse behind the curtain and help us connect with each other as humans and creative beings.

I will give you a description of the Challenge. You get to create with any medium of art and its techniques. (Photography, watercolor, oils, pencil, metal, written word…)
As artist post their work, we can gently and constructively comment what we think. Remember, not all people like harsh critiques and may not participate again. On the other hand, you will not improve if you don’t listen to some creative direction and encouragements. These weekly challenges are to get us back in the roll of creating, expressing and relaxing in the moment.

Who would like to do this?

pass it on and let see how many people we can encourage to play along.

Working a painting for to long

I enjoy painting, but there are times when I don’t have a vision for the painting.  When that happens my painting are over worked…by me!  It’s not a bad painting. It just doesn’t flow like my favorites.  i’ve already started the second painting.

Santa and Child

This is the best part of painting. Nothing is perfect and everything can be done again:)  Createfor the love of it!

The beginnings 

  I was updating my face book last fall, when I noticed a sweet post from a friend.  She was with some friends in Tennessee. I’m assuming this, because that’s where she lives. Whenever I think about her, she is in Tennessee at some famous music stars home, making them meow their voices into perfection.  Any how, she posted a hallmark photo of a little boy listening intently to Santa Claus.  I asked and received permission to paint him.  This is the beginnings.

Argentina, the way Ornela likes it

I’m painting again!  Can you believe it!

I have a few commission pieces and three of them are of Argentina.

They are a birthday gift, from a husband to his home-sick wife.  They met and married in Argentina and now live here in Ohio.

She misses home and this is what he can offer her and the beauty she misses.

 

Happy Birthday Ornela
