Lightbulb Wde 01-01-2016: Images Here

Happy New Year WDE'rs...welcome to 2016...wishing all a fantastic New Year.

I will be posting 16 images and a challenge. The photos are all mine, mostly taken by me.
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 applications - you could also say which applications 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, please post in its own thread and try to give the date/host of that particular week - if you can!

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

Let's enjoy some New stuff or memories of new stuff now old, in my neck of the woods; Ontario/Caribbean travels.

First Landscapes:
New sun shadows along an old favorite trail in Durham Forest where my family like to walk.



New waterfall discovered out camping at Rock Lake, Algonquin.



New icicles along the old shoreline at Bluffers Park, Scarborough.



Next architectural:
New path I took along the St. John River in first visit to New Brunswick. Lovely trail goes on for miles.



New visit to Bon Echo campground, old cabin with historic pieces.



How about some still life:
New light on old moose skulls in the old cabin at Bon Echo (very still life)



New look at old broken pottery I came across in Barbados last year.



New still Life of fruit basket on my old kitchen counter.



Some Creatures:
New excitement for these kids on seeing the old elephant.



New friend I met walking along a trail in Pickering.



New aquarium in Toronto features these lovely jellyfish and lots more.



New friendly fish at the new aquarium.



Some people:
New canoe then, that my son and I are navigating at Rouge River.



New song being played by my old friend Gerry on his shiny sax, backed by friend Ben on bass.



New beard on my smiling cousin, Eli.



One more and challenge to come....

Lastly:
New hockey game by old friends last winter on the old frozen pond just down the street from my home.



Your challenge:
1. Resolution: Do your piece in a style that you Resolve to do more in 2016
2. Fireworks: Do your piece in some form featuring lots of color (like the color in fireworks celebrating the New Year)

(I'll try to get larger res images into the RIL, if you need any prior PM me).

Looking forward to your fabulous pieces. "Happy New Year!!!"

Great photos Richard - plenty to get our teeth into!

All stuck with the magic glue

Happy New Year - go and enjoy it!

Oh yes, and I feel like you're in my part of the globe ... Durham (about 7 miles down the road) .. Scarborough and Pickering - about 60 miles! Small world!

Yeah we have a Scarborough here too, and its by the water as well although no ice as yet. The way the weather is going it may happen though.
Happy New Year Richard, what a great way to say goodbye to the old and welcome in the new year.

Cheers Maureen...appreciate that....

Maureen, Christine, It's interesting the place names we all share in common; much of it I believe, derived from our country's British ties and ancestry.
Fun stuff...
