Lightbulb March 7, 2014 WDE ~~ IMAGES HERE ~~

I will be posting 16 images and a challenge.

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 programs - you could also say which program 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).

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

The photos that I am posting are all taken by me and if you would like a better resolution version of any (or all) of them I will be happy to provide it to you. Just send me a pm with your e-mail and the requested photos.

As you already noticed in the invitation, we will take a Spring trip this weekend!

1. Almond blossoms with a colorful visitor, taken in middle January


2. About two weeks later I found these wild irises while taking a walk in the village


3. And this is the last floral for this collection, a quince bloom, which I took in middle March 2 years ago


4. This spring newborns of these two proud ladies


5. A cat enjoying the sunshine


6. And a pigeon with the same idea


7. Some of my boy colorful toys


8. And the outdoor playground at one of our first visits after winter



more to come in the next post...

Re: March 7, 2014 WDE ~~ IMAGES HERE ~~

In February I had a few walks around my house:

9. Some oranges from one of the trees in front of our building


10. An old car parked two blocks away


11. The new museum of Patras on a rainy/cloudy day (lots of rains this Spring here in Greece)


12. A boat ready to go back in the water for the new season (this little dock is at about 20 minutes walking)


13. The spring sailboat race at Patras Bay



Along with the spring activities go the next photos:

14. A huge pump that cleans the bottom of Kilini Port, to prepare it for summer


and the Carnival activities take place by end of February,

15. This proud little prince was so sweet on her white horse


16. And this grandma very funny with her little pumpkin



And, of course, the invitation photo



The challenge of this weekend: warm and cool, just as Spring is a combination of the two. Select one temperature as dominant, but make sure you have the other one in your art work!

Re: March 7, 2014 WDE ~~ IMAGES HERE ~~

Thank you for sharing your part of the world with us. Those goats are absolutely adorable. It must be so nice to be able to go out and pick and orange straight off the tree. I'm a sucker for cars too.
I'll try to participate tomorrow. I've spent most of today asleep after running errands yesterday wore me out.
