Late night watercolor play. I resisted the urge to fill in the shapes completely, and outline. I added interest with a texture sheet. What do you think… unfinished, or rustic?

I have a handful of small paper scraps that need using. I have decided I need to paint fairly large. 6 x 6 to 12 x12 seems to be good for me. Maybe I should say my eyes and hands have made the decision for me. LOL. It’s getting harder to paint small details.

We’ve had perfect puffy clouds the last couple of days. I wanted to paint the sky.

Enjoying my small paper play. I hope you can find time for the things you enjoy this weekend.

I thank you God
for this most amazing day,
for the leaping greenly spirits of trees,
and for the blue dream of sky
and for everything which is natural,
which is infinite,
which is yes.
E. E. Cummings

The sky is the limit.
You never have the same experience twice.

Happy are the painters, for they shall not be lonely.
Light and colour, peace and hope,
will keep them company to the end of the day.

During the February 2021 30-day challenge, over 700 pieces of art were created in our group. This is our fourth Creative Gathering, and our third year together. We are down about 120 pieces from last year. Several artists were unable to participate. We missed you!

Shown in no particular order. As I received permission, I added to the post. Many of the artists involved have been doing a bi-annual painting challenge for over 8 years. I am thrilled that so many choose to keep the challenge alive!

I am so honored to be among this group of creatives. Your work is amazing! I applaud your learning and experimenting. Your fearlessness. Your desire for growth. Your generosity and graciousness with fellow group members.

Thank you all for granting permission to share your work here and on the group Pinterest board. It is a gorgeous gallery!

Congratulations to all of the amazing artists who took part. Grab a cuppa, sit back, and browse the stunning art that follows. Enjoy!
