Google+ What I Made Today: A Colorful Hello Spring!

A Colorful Hello Spring!

It's been a long time since I've engaged an art journal (or any art) challenge with my online community of creatives. Yet yesterday offered a gift of shared herART journaling in the studio with some creative folk, and I managed to complete this colorful spread to welcome spring with a wee bit of my own bad poetry, as I lovingly call it.

And in doing that, I combined two challenges. One from Art Journal Journey, where the challenge is "Welcome Springtime," and Moo Mania, where the challenge is Colorful!

My hope is to reengage this practice, if not every month, then whenever I am able. I've been away from it too long. It's a fun 'n freeing experience, even with the structure of theme, to ponder a collective topic, tap into the collective creativity, create in the collective verve, and share the love with the collective community. Maybe you'd like to join the fun!

Peace. 🕊

Lovely Spring to you. Your art is very happy and creative.

I have been away for almost a year. Now both knees of mine have been replaced. So I have been doing some sketching .
I had sad news that set me back some. My dear Specialist who did my knees. Loss his life in January . A truck jackknifed and went into him. He was hit and he
died almost instantly. He was only 49 and Chief of his department. And 15 minutes from his home.

I love your bright, happy and colourful flowers and your poem of the power of the seeds. I am always astonished how the tiny seeds know what to do, to turn into a flower, a vegetable or whatever they are designed to do. It's magic.
Yes, these challenges are fun and encourage us to keep going. It is a great community of artists. Hope you are inspired to join in again.
