As sure as the cuckoo heralds the start of Spring,
so the Summer of Color arrives to welcome
the summer sunshine.
6 weeks of FREE arty inspiration.
Lovely Kristin has been generously
running Summer of Color for
5 YEARS now
and I feel privileged to have taken part
in every single one.
I always work in my little Moleskines,
which measure just 14cm x 9cm, and
I'm half way through my second book.
I love looking back at previous years' work
and seeing how my style has changed and
developed over the years.
I totally credit Summer of Color
with helping me to try new things and work on my
painting skills, in particular.
When looking at the pages I can often remember
events that were happening in my life at that time.
Some wonderful, some not so.
The feedback from the other people taking part
is always so generous and kind -
everyone appreciates that we are there to have fun.
There is a prize each week for a lucky person
chosen at random.
I have never won it but friends have.
I'll keep my fingers crossed,
although that isn't what I'm doing it for.
I'm doing it for the inspiration,
the art challenge, and
the joy of being part of something
Are you going to join in too?
For more information,
I hope to see you there!
