Sunday Postcard Art

This week's interesting challenge on Sunday Postcard Art is 'Phrenology.' Phrenology is the study of the shape of the skull; the variations and where they are located on the skull is like a map of the mind, according to this study. When I think of the mind I think of imagination and when I think of a map I think also of a journey, this is my entry for 'Phrenology.' Cheers!

Theme Thursday - Busy!

OK, there is busy and then there is BUSY!!! The challenge on Theme Thursday this week is 'Busy.' You can interpret it any way you want and there are some wonderful entries, do check them out.

The first thing that came to my mind was this piece in my stash box that I had never figured out what to do with. I originally put this together for a Sunday Postcard Art challenge - 'Botanical.' It was one of those pieces that you keep adding more to as you are trying to save it but it keeps getting worse! I didn't like it because it was too busy! I remember I went back to the drawing board and created another piece very quickly that I was happy with. I don't let myself toss these disasters because eventually I can pull them out and the perfect solution presents itself and all is saved - not this one!

So, I have debated all day whether to put this on or not; I still don't like it, but it fits the challenge to a T. Anyway, here it is for all to see - Cheers!

Sunday Postcard Art

The theme on Sunday Postcard Art this week is 'Windows.' Randy took this photo from inside a very beautiful and very old church on the road to Hana last March, when we were in Maui. We ran through a tropical downpour to take refuge in this gorgeous sanctuary. The windows and door were just openings, no glass or door, and it was so welcoming. This is my entry for 'Windows.'

One Powerful Hour

This week's challenge on One Powerful Hour is 'Resolutions.' Do you make them? Do you hate them? Do you keep them? I am not one for resolutions but I have decided to take expressions that have some meaning for me and put them on my monthly calendar. January is always a time to regroup and a beginning; for this month I have chosen 'take your wings and fly.' I hope you can discover a new pair of wings that will take you to creative places. Happy New Year!
