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.

Let sleeping babies and dogs rest

How beautiful it is, here in Ohio on this perfect, August day. I’m sitting outside for the first time in weeks. Things have kept me far to busy, for me to escape to one of my quiet chairs in the backyard. It’s not as quiet as it once was, but it will do and it is mine:). I was able to cross a few accomplishments off my to do list. So, my reward is this!

I have a young friend who will be having her first baby soon. So today, I painted her a sleeping baby. I still treasure gifts from my first baby shower, some 27 yrs ago. I hope she enjoys it!
