Reminder: End of Spring Challenge June 6, 2011

Just a reminder!

Hi all you creative types! Last year we did three virtual paint-outs here on WordPress and boy were they fun. I am issuing the call for our first paint out of 2011. I am a devoted reader of Oprah magazine and this month I was captured, I was enchanted, I was gripped by six words from a poem by e. e. cummings. I am a farm girl who grew up among the green fields and forests of Indiana. The words that captured my imagination are “the leaping greenly spirits of trees”. I would like to offer these as the inspiration for our first paint out. I hope everyone reading this realizes that the “Paint Out” is open to all artists whether you paint with a brush, a needle, a word processor.

On the last day of Spring, Monday, June 20th, please post your creation on your blog and leave a comment on my post. If you are not a blogger and would still like to participate, email me your creation and I will do a follow-up post with your work.

Thanks to all who join the community and accept the challenge.

      What a great challenge! I love the idea of “the leaping greenly spirits of trees”! Not exactly a tree hugger (which seems to have become a somewhat derogatory term), I am very much into the spirit of trees none-the-less. I am not sure I would participate though. I exploring still life with oil at this time and have two watercolor portraits in the works. I will be thinking of this opportunity however. Who knows, perhaps I will paint a tree… Thank you for coming up with this!
