Please join me as we ride the waves of creativity....
Althea, creator of Salvaged Expession, created this ultra-cool piece.
"Well when presented with this theme I thought and thought and got Surfin' Bird stuck in my head so rather than fight it I decided to make this admittedly silly keychain," said Althea. "I'm concerned that I'll have to rework it since the pen seems to have bled but it's at least potentially finished now so here it is!"
Amanda, creator of Persistent Green, created this stunnng piece, play time in progress.
"My project here might not look much like surfing, but I was thinking of bubbles and those crazy-colorful creatures in the deep sea . . . yeah . . . are you buying my argument? ;)" said Amanda. "This week I experimented with a technique I've long wanted to try--painting coffee filters! I plan to add more layers of color, then add some gloss gel, punch holes in them, and hang them like suncatchers."
Maureen, a super talented artist, created this gorgeous piece.
"This week I carried the prompt around with me a few days . . anything ocean-related is an automatic fav . . then Saturday I had to be at a challenging family gathering--it called into question who I was, what my worth was, etc." said Maureen. "I started work on this watercolor with wax resist to help heal myself. By Sunday night, my last step was to shake salt all over the lush wetness--I figured that tears/salt water could be part of my art, if it was to be part of my life . . I love the effect they left. Today I added the last few highlights . . the smallest part, but the bluest part, is me. I might seem dwarfed by the waves, but I'm really curled inside them, having a great ride!!! I think I"m kind of daring the surf to just TRY and dump me!!"
Bird, creator of Crow Tarot Tours, created these sensational pieces.
"Ride Never Tame - Between tsunamis & the world's wild, restless waves, humans will never completely tame the oceans," said Bird.
"Surf & Turf - Have you ever felt this way? I know I have."

Natasha, creator of DoodleStar, created this piece.
This week, I played with watercolors. I have found I LOVE playing with the color. I'm reaching a new point in my life where I'm working exceptionally hard to throw off the shackles of fear and go for what I want. Although the perspective is off, I love this piece because it celebrates the desire, the almost unbearable need to break free. It also represents the colors I saw and felt when I was surfing...can't wait to get back to it!
Are you feeling inspired to ride the wave of creativity? If you are then grab hold of the next theme - "Ladybug Luck. " Here we will try to capture the magic and "luck" idea behind these tiny wonders. The only requirement is that you have to use red and black in some way within your piece.
