What You Loved Doing in 2008


To round off the year, I thought it would be fun to see what everyone really loved doing during 2008.  So choose your most favourite thing, create something for us and let us see.  It is interesting to reflect back on a year, and see what direction our art has taken us.  Then it’s exciting to look towards the new year and the possibilities it holds for us artistically.  Have a fun and safe new year everyone!

    Diane, you sample picture is amazing. So beautiful and such scrumptious colours and wonderful painting.

    My take on the challenge (far less classy!) is on my blog.

    I think I posted my link in a dfiferent thread, so here it is. My most favorite thing to work with this year has been acrylics – have also enjoyed branching out into postcard art and arches.

    Happy New Year!

    I learned a lot this year from yours and other challenge blogs – thank you! What I really love doing is making gifts for others – and I’m expecially excited to be experimenting more with acrylic paints and 3-D objects. So here is a gift I made for my sister-in-law, in which she said she will put all her NY rezzies and then open it next NY to see how she did!

  24. Audrey Meijs Says:

    Hi, my entry is on my blog!

    Wishing all of you a Happy New Year!

  25. Hello. I’m submitting a new piece I made. But I might be cheating here. The piece is about winter, and no, I don’t love winter. I used to when I was young. But now I’m older, and live in Colorado, and so NO, I don’t like the cold and snow like I did when I was young. Now, I wish I could migrate south in the winter.

    However, I used caulk for the background of this piece for some great texture. And I DO love using caulk in my art. So that’s what I love about this piece. I hope that counts for posting in this challenge. I hope you take a look.
