Lightbulb WDE December 25 IMAGES HERE

I will be posting 16 images + the invitation photo and a challenge.

Just a reminder that AlainJ's December 17 WDE is still in effect for the next couple of days because this one was posted early for Christmas. Please keep those artworks coming too!

Please wait until all are uploaded before commenting - thank you.
You have 30 minutes to make your choice and choose your materials - you may use any medium.

For the next two hours, just go for it……then STOP!, scan or photograph your work and post it in your own new thread with your title, beginning with WDE, plus date, plus title.

When you introduce your work, please add a description of size, medium, support (paper, canvas etc) and time taken.
If your work is digital, we'd appreciate a description of whether it's freehand drawing/painting, manipulated image or done using the filters available in some programmes - you could also say which programme you've used.
All are acceptable but we'd like to know the "hows, whys and wherefores"!!

Use WIP for any work in progress at the 2 hour mark, and MI for multiple images if other works are to be added before the following Monday.

NB. To avoid forum flooding, please put all of your work during the weekend, for the current WDE, into a single thread: multiple threads will be merged!
From the following TUESDAY, you may open a new thread for later work.

You have the whole week to participate - until the next WDE starts (usually Friday). If you finish a piece after that time, we now run a 'Catch-up' thread in the forum each month where you can post any WDE not completed in its allotted week .... it's a sticky near the top of the forum page.

After posting your contribution, please view others’ entries and comment and encourage when you can. Unless requested, please refrain from critiquing.


alright... here we goooo!!!!



1) Kananaskis Country - you know Christmas is on the way when you see the first snowfalls in the mountains.

Re: WDE December 25 IMAGES HERE

Mike, your photos are top-notch - you really are an excellent camera-clicker!
Thank you - plenty to keep us snow-bound people going (plus all the past weeks I've missed!!).

Hi Mike and all!

It's been a long time since I've been able to participate. I'm hoping to be able to do at least one this week. Beautiful photos! I'm especially loving the snow scenes. Thanks for hosting, Mike and for the inspiration!
