With travel wings clipped, there’s lot of time for the gentle side of life. For me, that’s reading, writing, listening to music and creating art. I’ve happily rejoined some of my old art challenge groups and below are some of my creations.
For SUNDAY POSTCARD ART (https://sundaypostcardart.wordpress.com/) they challenged participants to create art with the theme “alchemist.” The art of alchemy was handed down through the centuries from Egypt and Arabia to Greece and Rome, then finally western and central Europe. The original aims of alchemists were to find the Stone of Knowledge, to discover the medium of eternal youth and health and to change the form of ordinary metals into more valuable forms like gold or silver. In medieval times, alchemy was associated with sorcery and witchcraft as well.
TAKE A WORD (https://takeaword.blogspot.com/) is the next art challenge group I played with. Their theme was “botanical” so I chose to examine mushrooms…delicious with almost anything!!!
Finally, a piece of art that just made me feel good…
Stay safe and try to do things that make your heart smile during this time of lockdown! Sending my love and best wishes to you all… abbyj
