December's Banner

I have tried to post this to the banner and I can't seem to figure it out.  So, I'll just try this.

Friday, November 2, 2012

thanks Brice for the November banner!

Thanks so much Brice Reignier for the November banner--it's very exciting and so unique! Also, love the prompts--hope we get a lot of fun responses.

I copied the banner you posted here and enlarged it. If you're not happy with it (is it a bit blurry?), then send me the full size or no smaller than 900 pixels wide to: painthorsegallery (at) gmail (dot) com

November Banner


I wasn't quite sure how to get this through, thought I'd try this way :)

Here's the banner:

I had a few suggestions for possible challenges:

> Animals in space - poor Laika was launched in space in November 
(that's her in top right of banner)

> Hot air balloons - man's first flight 

> Mummy - King Tut's tomb was discovered this month

and of course > Thanksgiving and/or "Gobble! Gobble!"

These are only a few suggestions based on what I learned about November... "Mummy" might be more appropriate as "Discovery" or something like that, I leave it to you.

If I had Wings

If I had wings I would be a fairy in the garden, who is a bit far sighted and likes red shoes.

thanks Pat Gibbs for the great August banner! love the colors & the concept!

Hansel and Gretel (In swedish "Hans och Greta") is a fairytale that has a very terrifying and interesting witch. :/


I always loved this fairy tale.  Don't know why.  That witch was really scary.

Alice in Wonderland by Penny Noble
I haven't joined in much lately as my 93 year old Mother broke her foot and her mind has fallen down the Rabbit hole with Alice. My family and I are taking care of her at home. So time consuming but worthwhile.She took good care of me!

after the splash: Summer fun!

Our little rhino friend has just found a watering hole, what luck!

I used a digital cut-out technique to chop up some watercolor textures into the various bits you see, a little airbrushing here and there and voila!

I notice that the November banner has not been chosen by anyone, can I request it?

Dear WaWe members:

I was "cleaning" the Watercolor Wednesday blog by clicking on member links. If the link went nowhere, I deleted that member. I then tried to cross-reference emails with websites and/or blogs. If I couldn't match an email with either a blog, website, or member name, I deleted it.

So, if I deleted you by mistake, please respond to this post with (1) your blog or website address; (2) your current email address; (3) your name or the name you'd like to use on our site.
Thanks & so sorry if I've inconvenienced any one.

When posting...

WaWe members, when posting please title your illustration with the title of the piece followed by your name. For example, "Horses in the Wind" by Linda Snider Ward. We have 80+ members and although the majority do not post on a regular basis, viewers want to know who did what. We don't want them to have to hunt for your name--anyway, be proud of your work--you're all amazing!

"Big Dog" by Linda Snider Ward

This doesn't go with any of our challenges, but I hadn't posted in awhile. This is actually an ACEO (Artist Cards, Editions, Originals), part of a small series that I did for the Canine Art Guild ACEO challenge. "Flower Power" is the theme & my big dog Minnie (a St. Bernard) is the subject (she often is). Watercolor on paper, 2.5" x 3.5".

Just a note to our WaWe members, please put your name in the title of your posting--that way it's clear who did what.

Mr Bears green form of travel

Mr Bears very green form of transportation.
A bit of a stretch for the theme but other than a little hot air a pretty green form of travel. Will he recycle the balloon?
