Week 9 - 10 Inspiration ~ Reflections

Hi Dana -
Here is one that might fit the theme!

Manna From Heaven
Oil on Canvas
by Nancy Medina

I have decided, at this time, to change the "weekly challenge" to every other week, until entries pick up. Even though you can always go back and post on any of the weekly challenges, I'd love to see more "current" entries...myself included ;) ....and perhaps giving us 2 weeks will give us more time to post our creations. Also, please, remember, I'm not looking for exact replicas of the photograph, please, post whatever the photograph has inspired you to create. Also, you may recreate the piece via whatever media you choose to use. Let those creative juices flow!

Happy Creating!

I have a cool painting that fits right in with this, even if the colors are different. Great subject, Dana!

Week 8 Inspiration ~ Boardwalk

I took this the other day when my husband, our 10yr old son, and I took a walk at the Jackson Fraiser Wetlands here in Corvallis. There is others I really like from this particular walk that I may post for future challenges.


I would like to take a moment and welcome our newest members Ikshaa, Leanne, and I don't think I formally welcomed, Matthew!



I have, in the past weeks, moved pictures and information to the post I feel that the particular material belongs in as to keep the blog from being too scattered....so, please, don't take offense if I have done this to one of your posts! :)

Have a beautiful day!

Happy Creating!

Week 7 Inspiration ~ In the Eye of the Beholder

1.5" X 1.5" Original Miniature Acrylic Painting in Glass Locket Pendant

"Side by Side"

by Dana Marie

1.5" X 1.5" Original Miniature Acrylic Painting in Glass Locket Pendant

I wanted to begin with the color combination and as I was setting up I thought of a large piece (30" X 24"), "Botanical Three" and these two are were created using the inspiration of that piece and the color combination of this week's Inspiration photograph.

One may see disease, yet another may see the beauty they behold.
