Summer of Color

I am so excited to participate. This will be my first time I have ever done something with an online group of artists.  But it is summer after all, and I am making time for this, for me.

So every week we will make art, any art, with the week's color prompt.  We link it back to Twinkle Twinkle and share are work.  There are giveaways and all.  So, come join me!  It may put a twinkle of color in your summer!

So I am quickly suppose to give a glimmer of what I will be doing, but I truly have no idea!  But I know it will be inspired by Blue!

Motivated, dynamic, refined, youthful, introspective, conservative and patient.

oh edit.  I do know.  I am going to make something around the idea of a boy.  I have a deep gutted longing for a son, but I have come to a huge realization that I cannot really handle having any more kids.  Three girls is a load of work, and in all honesty, I don't know how great I am at it.  I can never shake the idea of a son.  So, that is my blue.


  1. Oooh, I love this post! I know exactly what you mean by wanting a boy too - it is a dream of mine as well.

  14. Nice to meet you; you never know, it could happen!
    I am not sure what I am doing. I went and gathered blue supplies and sort of have a water scene, but still not sure yet. I am looking forward to your boy art!

  15. Hi! Thank you for stopping by. Your art is beautiful! I look forward to seeing your summer of color projects!


  16. I love your "blue" piece! The birds are beautiful!
    I can really relate for your wish for a boy. Before I had Avery, I literally ached for a girl, and don't know what I would have done if I had had three boys, although I put it in God's hands and knew that whatever happened was for a reason. So I really empathize with your wish for a boy, and I'm sorry that you're pained with it.
    However, coming from a family of three girls, I'll just say that we are all best friends now, and have a great relationship with our mother, so hopefully that is what you have to look forward to...

    PS Thx for the comments about my photos! I love the exposure on those, too!


Hey you!!!
