May Challenge — Shadows

It’s a new month and a new theme for our online art challenge. Marilyn Jackson, who first suggested this idea in 2013, continues to encourage us to stretch our artistic wings.

She suggested “shadows” for this month’s theme.

I took this photo at our local farmers’ market last summer. All our booths are outdoors so it’s not unusual for some of the local wild life to visit. This lovely golden dragonfly paused on one of my beaded necklaces, casting shadows as it soaked up the early morning sun.

April Challenge — Marlene Dixon

Yes, I know it’s May and I’m behind. (Blame it on the snow, cause there’s plenty of it where I am right now.)

Thanks to Marlene Dixon who submitted this pencil sketch as part of the “family” theme for the April challenge.

Lots of feathered critters are looking to nest near us — robins (who are shaking snow off their wings in our yard), Canada geese, mallards and assorted other waterfowl who are cruising the sloughs and ponds, and along the fence line bluebirds are checking out the wooden houses nailed to the posts.

Love this time of year. Thanks for capturing part of the excitement, Marlene!

We’ll launch the May theme tomorrow. 🙂
