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.
I enjoyed looking at everyone’s artwork. Thank you … Cindy (your neighbor)
Thanks so much for taking the time to vote Cindy! I really appreciate it 🙂
Lots of terrific designs. 🙂
Sheila, these lines from a novel entitled Joy School by Elizabeth Berg come to mind:
It’s a good thing to let people know
how much you like them.
It’s strange but true
that people usually forget to do that,
but then when you see
how the littlest compliment
can make a person sit up lively
you say to yourself,
What a gift you’ve given so many artists—and yourself—via the 30-Day Creative Gathering! I send you huge hugs and kudos, and I trust you are sitting up LIVELY!
I am in awe of what you’ve created.
And, is Joy School a perfect title or what?!
What an honor, Dotty, for you to see me like that. Thank you, my very dear friend.
YES! That is so true. And yes, I am. 🙂 Sitting up LIVELY!
That is a perfect name. It would be a great name for the group.🤓
Remember, you are always welcome to join us. What a JOY that would be!
Hugs, and Happy creating to you! 😃🙏🤗
So wonderful to see all of these together like this – thank you for taking the time Sheila. It always surprises me which pieces each artist chooses as their favourites. It is obvious that I have to go back and check out more of the albums as I obviously missed seeing some work.
It is surprising Val. Often, the pieces I felt less sure about, are what others like best. Haha. 🙂
This time I think my favorites and the choice of others lined up quite a bit.
I hope everyone will take the time to go back and look. There are many artists who did not receive a lot of feedback, and that is unfortunate.
See you in the next round! Keep sharing your fabulous work with the world! 😃🙏🤗
