Calling Friends, Artists and All Onlookers

One quiet winter afternoon I was looking for one more thing to do as the ice and snow had continued to hold me captive inside.

Bank Barn in Winter

I had never googled my blog so I thought this might be an interesting activity.  Photos I had posted during the last three years filled the screen.  Then a painting appeared. I thought I recognized it.  Intrigued I clicked on the photo and discovered a post dated April 16, 2012 by Maria Zarif.  I was so honored that someone had chosen a photograph I had taken to use as a catalyst for her inspiration!

I share that photo, a link to her post and her painting.

The Beat

And then I had an idea.  I want to ask friends, artists and all onlookers who stop by this blog to take a moment from their busy schedule to choose a photo and create!  Have fun, don’t get bogged down in the details, just create! I would like to ask you to please stop back and share your creation!

I might even give it a go!

As a post script watercolors I had created more than 3 decades ago I honored by taking photos of in their new incarnation.         As I shared earlier don’t worry about the details
