On the Hunt for Joy Challenge – Week 2 – Say Cheese

…thanks to Cee for hosting On the Hunt for Joy Challenge

People are such hams when they get in front of a camera. It doesn’t take much to get people to smile but sometimes you find yourself saying ‘say cheese’. It works about 90% of the time……

…..and sometimes it doesn’t

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Spring

….thanks to Cee for hosting the Fun Foto Challenge

Spring may seem far away but March 21st is just around the corner. This year I’ll be in London, England when spring arrives and I’m hoping to see blossoms on the trees and some early spring flowers.

Day 12 of Creativity Challenge

…thanks to Rainee for connecting me with the 30 Day Creativity Challenge

Today I finally got around to starting my first assignment for the year long on-line course called 2020: Words and Pictures. Carla Sonheim’s first lesson was taking a phrase and creating at least three different art pieces using any medium we wanted. The phrase is:

‘This might be impossible to read but it was fun to make.’

I kept writing the phrase from the centre of a circle and just kept going and going, around and around. In the end I decided to add some collage detail and write the phrase one more time. 4412CB23-9DDF-458F-B59C-F752A23C0355_1_201_a

Yay….a New Challenge – Week 1

…thanks to Cee for starting a new challenge Hunt for Joy

The theme for the first week is to Get Outside. Seeing how much I like to walk this was a pretty easy one for me.

As you can see it’s been a bit overcast lately and the weekend calls for lots of rain.14D50E60-19E4-4D21-96FC-7F80892C256A

But these two fellows brought me joy on my walk.005FC3F9-B48E-4CFE-817D-54CF02B16977DD5A479A-A6D9-44BB-8855-2EC4C2375085
