The Creative Gathering Group Gallery, September 2023

Our September creative gathering marks the close of our fifth year. Five years of friendly, fruitful, fun. Along with creating 571 pieces of art, over 5000 conversations took place (comments). That’s a whole lot of chit-chat and cheering each other on!

Our daily average number of posts was down this round. Many of our long time members were unable to participate. Fingers crossed they will join us in February. 🥰

I’m so excited, to be able to share a glimpse at the fabulous works created by our group. Below is a video highlighting two pieces from each artist. You will also see a collage of all the work they created during the month. I usually do not include myself in the group gallery, but as it is only a video that will be posted to our group Pinterest board, I added myself at the end.

I struggled to make this, hate to admit. 😆 Photoshop changed things, and I had to learn it all over again. I apologize that there is no music track. I have set a fairly long delay rate, to give you enough time to look through the collages. It runs about 4 minutes, and will repeat. These are low resolution images, so there may be some slight pixelation or blur. But that serves to protect the works from being copied.

Grab a cuppa’ and enjoy!

Diane Scott Wilde

713 pieces of fabulous art were created in our September Gathering. Last year our total was 620. So even though we were missing several artists, we still did very well.
Bravo! One and all! If you painted one day, or 30, Congratulations! Our fourth year is off to a fabulous start!

I am so honored to share this time with so many talented artists. Your work is amazing! I applaud your curiosity, your drive, your experimentation. Your fearlessness. Your desire for growth. Your generosity and graciousness with fellow members is a true gift. Thank you for your kindness, and your honesty.

A huge thank you to all artists for granting permission to show your work here and on the group Pinterest board. I am so excited to share this small selection of fabulous art. I know you will love it as much as I do. Feel free to leave comments for the artists. The Pinterest gallery is even better, you can see them all together. Grab a cuppa, and enjoy!

I did not include links this time, but the artists with websites can easily be found in a browser search. Thanks so much for taking the time to view these fabulous work.

Art can heal, it can lift us up. Art encourages community & reduces isolation. It increases self awareness. For the artist and for the viewer. Art can build a bridge across borders, and foster true friendships. Art gives meaning to our lives. Our Gathering has proven the all of this.

Thank you, for sharing the gift of your creative spirit.

Wishing you peace, health, and JOYful creating!


Happy Weekend Friends

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.
