Clearly, I'm still adjusting to how time works with two little ones LOL! I'm so thrilled to say hello again! Welcome back to the TST. This website will be changing within the next few month but for now, let's get started!!
I'm so proud to share the unique, truly sensational works created by incredibly talented artists that I love!
Sit back, relax and enjoy the dance.....
Maureen, a truly talented artist who celebrates life created this joyful piece.
"It seems very appropriate that this first TST prompt, after our 'time out for life' break, should be one that reawakens my awareness of the power of art, running through our veins," said Maureen.
"This first prompt didn't move me. This gal gets Tasha's juices flowing, but she just didn't do anything for me. But I wanted to do SOMEthing . . so was gonna paint a wild-and-swirly something-or-other, because that's what the gal's hair made me think of. So, I listened to the video one more time and headed for my paints . . and what came out was NOTHING like my rational brain was planning, and yet, it was exactly right. Just what I needed. When my ears heard "the dog days are over," my heart heard "the dark days are over," because I've been climbing out of a veeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry deep hole, emotionally, and can finally see daylight. Not surprisingly, this piece demanded (very nicely) to be framed, and will hang somewhere on my new mandarin walls.
I know we are supposed to keep our comments to 2-3 sentences, and I'll do that in future, but I just HAD to share how this prompt (on the surface no big deal) really touched me in my artist's soul."
Felicia Kramer, creator of Another Bright Idea and the NEW More bright Ideas, created this unforgettable piece titled, “Staccato”.
"No earth-shattering significance in this piece, except that the images dancing in my head are chaotic – staccato – too much to do and not enough time to do it in," said Felicia. "At the same time I long for calm and serenity but don’t see it on the horizon for quite a while.
One of the reasons for that busy-ness in my life: I opened a second etsy shop (morebrightideas) and moved all of my more craft-oriented items over, along with some new items that are recycled/repurposed. My original shop (anotherbrightidea) now has only my digital creations, photography, greeting cards and ACEOs. I’m SO glad I did it, and the new shop is getting a lot of traffic, but now my original shop is wasting away! I have to give it some new attention and new work."
Amanda, creator of Persistent Green, created "Quirk," a gorgeous mixed media wall hanging, seven inches across.
"First, I have to say (shout?!) how thrilled I am to be playing here again--I can't wait to "see" everybody!" said Amanda. "My first thought about the video was "Wow, that is one confident woman!," and I wanted to celebrate the concept of embracing your quirkiness instead of hiding it. This piece is part of a new series I'm developing called "Medallions," which feature vibrant color and pattern, along with inspiring words."
Natasha, creator of DoodleStar, created these fun crayons.
"When I listen to Florence and the Machine, I think fierce, colorful thoughts. Thus, these lion crayons were born. I want to create wild images with them!"
