August Art Challenge....SUMMER STUFF

Well, we kinda goose-egged the photo submissions for summer scenes, so I came up with four subjects to choose from for this month's challenge...

Some of us were crazy enough to go kayaking

Some of us took the kids to the zoo

Some of us went to SeaWorld

And some of us went to the Park

And those are the Four Subject choices for August. Brush in hand! Colors on Palette! Paint!

Send your submissions to jpolderndirt2@yahoo.com

Check the following blog for the PHOTO subject.....CATS

August Challenge for PHOTOGRAPHERS... CATS

Okay, shutterbugs!!!!! This month's subject is CATS...Felines...Mousers.
Should be an easy project. Everybody has a cat. If you don't have one, I can send you one of my neighbor's. You know, dogs treat you like royalty. Cats treat you like staff. But they can be cute....so send me some cute pictures.

July Challenge for Photos...SCENES OF SUMMER

Keep your camera handy and snap a photo of "Summer Stuff"... whatever seems remindful of Summer. Maybe kids playing in the pool. Maybe that bikini walking by the pool. Birds in the birdbath. Broken thermometers. Half eaten hot dogs. You and your friends playing volleyball. Me in the shade watching you and your friends playing volleyball.

Use your imagination. The best three scenes (photos) will be selected as reference for the August Painting Challenge. Send your shots to JPolderndirt2@yahoo.com by August 1.
