Spectacular Artists Create New Works!

To those who joined this project after it started and felt they did not have time to complete a new piece of work, do not worry. Please feel free to join the next project which will begin tomorrow.

Drumroll please! I am proud to unveil the incredible creations of these talented artists. These pieces of artwork were created in response to Theme 1: Enchanted Night. (See the previous posts). I applaud all of these individuals for challenging themselves and producing such beautiful, stunning, thought-provoking work. It is truly an honor to be able to talk, laugh, create and learn from these inspiring artists!
Our first piece is the Enchanted Night - Moonstone, Moon and Star Silver Ox Pendant created by PinkWaterFairy. PinkWaterFairy has a great Etsy shop at http://pinkwaterfairy.etsy.com/




Our next piece was created by Salvaged Expression. When a "silly little comic type thing" got stuck in Salvaged's head, this artist decided to create "The Moon Gets Lit." Salvaged Expression has a fabulous Etsy shop at http://salvagedexpression.etsy.com/.





Our next piece of artwork was created by Janet Davies. After spending time in the White Mountains of Arizona with a friend this summer and experiencing the true beauty of the sky and the moon, Janet was left with memories that will last a lifetime. This memories combined with this theme to create this necklace which has little paintings on hangtags. Janet has an amazing Etsy shop at http://janetdavies.etsy.com/.



The next two pieces were created by Lorrie Veasey of Our Name is Mud. Lorrie's playful, thoughtful spirit comes through here as it does in all her work. Lorrie's incredible work can be found at http://www.ournameismud.com/.



Our next piece was created by EarthDeva who posted a fantastic blog post about this project and finding inspiration for it at http://the-earthdeva.blogspot.com/. EarthDeva's dazzling Etsy shop is located at http://earthdeva.etsy.com/.



Finally, here is my piece. This image is what developed after having a conversation with my husband about this project. He was excited and for the first time we collaborated. He created the little boat. My Etsy shop is located at http://doodlestar.etsy.com/


Please stop by the stores or blogs of these amazing folks and share some love. Please share your comments and thoughts here. And if you are feeling inspired, please join us for our next project which begins tomorrow, Friday, January 16th.
Hats off to all of you. What incredible work!
