A little over a month ago, my good friend Julie (Scottsdale Daily Photo) asked me to join her and her husband Dave (Tamarindo Daily Photo) in a summer arts project. The project includes a small group of people in a wide range of ages and an even wider range of artistic training and talents. The project is supposed to last over the summer and give us something to do other than bemoan our excessive heat. Every three weeks, a member of the group gets a turn at supplying a theme for our creative outlet and we all go off and create our little work of art based on that theme. Our most recent theme was “Mountain Moods” using our own Camelback Mountain as the inspiration. Friday night, we all met to look at each other’s work and discuss our creative process. The above photo is my entry and since it is full of bright colors, I thought it would be perfect for today’s theme. (You might notice that it’s the same photo I posted on July 26th.)
I can’t begin to tell you how much fun this has been and this is only our second project. As Julie said last night, “this is way better than a book club”.
