I had so much fun with this series. I painted first, with acrylics and/or watercolor. The first two have pots that were collaged by hand. I continued in Photoshop, adding collage with digital patterns. Some of which are just copies of paper patterns I have.

You might ask, “why not just collage the paper by hand?”. And that is a fair question. In photoshop I can change the color, stretch or shrink the pattern, change the direction. I can try everything. I can also change my mind in the final stages and rework the individual pieces.

I hope you enjoy these as much as I do. We are in the final week of the gathering now, and I have started a new series. But I will be revisiting this style in months to come.

I’m having fun with these. The first four were painted in acrylic or watercolor. And the patterns were added digitally in Photoshop. Not as easy as it might sound. On the vase above it took three times longer to add the collage and effects, than it did to paint it.

For day 16, I shared a work in progress. I will be sharing the final pattern soon. Here I created a plaid, which will act as the background for the rest of the design. The theme is Fika, Swedish coffee break. But it is so much more than that. Fika is all about bonding with friends and family. It can take place several times a day.

I knew that many would use the colors of the Swedish flag, And I wanted to do something different. I tried adding a weave texture, but as you can see, it darkens the colors too much.

This landscape is watercolor, acrylics and collage. And splatter of course. 😆

Here in the valley we are enjoying a rainy, dark day. It’s been raining off and on since about 11 pm. It is cool, and the rain is not evaporating. This is a good long soak.

Creativity is
inventing,
experimenting,
growing,
taking risks,
breaking rules,
making mistakes,
and having fun.

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!
