Summer Of Colour - Green

R reckons I do too much.  All these weekly challenges on the net!  Well, it's only three... Summer Of Colour,  Scrapiteria,  and Inspiration Avenue.  Oh, I forgot Liberate Your Art (but it's only a one-off swap of postcards of your art),  AND A Letter A Week.

Of course this is above and beyond the work needed for the usual run of winter exhibitions, and I need to paint for an exhibition at Studio 4  in October. 

Most of the net challenges are run from the USA, and it has been a wonderful introduction to many creative people working on the other side of the world.

As a new 'blogger' this year I have been doing this to help familiarise myself with the world of 'blogging' and it's been fun, fun, fun... if a little hectic. I suspect I will not take on such a load next year and concentrate on my real work.

That said, here's this week's collection of GREEN for the Summer Of Colour  (well, it's winter here... but who cares?)

Riverbank - painting


Bamboo - digitally enhanced

The Cricket Match - Photoshop

Handmade choker using imported foiled glass bead.

I think that's enough mucking about with green.  Next post will be another 'summer' theme for Inspiration Avenue.

  6. Love the riverbank, and your take on *green*.
    I mentioned to a friend the other day that I hated green and she proceeded to remind me of all the work I had done with green as a basis or main part.
    I ate crow.
    Isn't it odd how we react to a single color word, where *Spring green* or *Fern green* would have made me feel different?
    Is it just ME???

    XXOO~~

  10. Thanks to you all for the great comments, particularly about the painting. Painting is my first love, my joy, frustrating as it can be. I'm fairly new to Photoshop, but it's great fun and am doing lots of practice.

  12. Just beautiful Jo! I too love all this beautiful green work, & your painting is just stunning. It reminds me of a beautiful impressionist classic ;). Thank you for joining us too - it is hard to limit ourselves blogging isn't it? I know I too get so excited about all the things out there, that it sometimes takes over, lol. Oh well, at least we are doing what we love! xo
