Ch #21 - "Emotion" - Time to Vote

Hi Everyone,

Here are the entries for our second challenge that's ending this month: "Emotion".

Valerie (MosaicMuse on Flickr) picked this challenge.

Here's her definition:

"A 2D interpretation of an emotion, either abstract or in the real here and now.

So, not a picture of something that would invoke an emotion (eg: spiders (fear) Brad Pitt (lust?) Flag (pride) - but what that emotion would look like in art form. Eg - a deep red wash to show anger (abstract), or a pair of wide eyes showng surprise (here & now).

Include information about the size and tess used, and something about the emotion or at least what the emotion is."

I love the entries for this challenge. They're so interesting!

Please check them out on Flickr (right here) to see more detail, and either send me a FlickrMail or an Email at with your top three favorites. You may vote through the end of the day, June 8.

Ch #20 "Something Natural" - Time to Vote

Hi Everyone,

We have two challenges to vote for this month. I'll blog about the 2nd challenge later this week. For now we're looking at the pieces entered for challenge 20 - "Something Natural".

The "Something Natural" Challenge was Judit's (StIglice) pick after winning the "Animal" Challenge.

Here is her definition of the challenge:

Create a piece using at least 50% (the more the better) natural materials: minerals, stones, pebbles, etc.

There is no restriction on the base, the colors, the theme, the style or the form of the natural materials.

Please check out the gorgeous work here and send me a FlickrMail or Email me with your top three favorites. Please include the number of the piece from the Flickr discussion and the artist's name. I like to get both so I'm sure the piece of your choice is getting the vote.

Happy Voting!
