Of course I've only done A Letter A week for one year so HAD to join up again for just one more. With an ongoing interest in digital art I've chosen this medium for my first alphabet for the year.
The image might well change when the entire alphabet is completed, but at least I'm in the process.
My collaging is done for now (see previous collage posts on the side-bar), and I have a painting on the easel at last. This is intended for either the Rotary ArtCoast exhibition or the Sunshine Coast Art Awards and is part of a series I call "Aloft", all semi-abstract landscapes from a birdseye view.

I've also committed to doing a photographic self-portrait challenge... one each month for 'Urban Muser'. I'm hoping this challenge will cause me to consider my photos more carefully. This month the task is "A Piece Of Me", so here goes for a VERY amateur photographer.
I thought I'd kick off with a real depiction of the beginning of the process, actually taking a photo (in the mirror).
Naturally I mucked around with it in Photoshop. Hope that's acceptable within the guidelines. After all, a photo is there to be 'artified' isn't it? (I expect some flak re this from REAL photographers)
So...... that's two challenges on top of my International Collage Exchange and 2012 COMA shows (probably four this year), plus general painting awards and exhibitions... too much you think? Probably, but life's too short to waste.
