Arrow Plant Parade: our New Year Challenge, Jan 2017

2017 Hosting Schedule is here if you'd like to sign up to host!


************************************************** *******


Welcome to our forum project,
January Plant Parade

There are few rules:
Any medium
Any size
Reveal day for posting is 25th January or any day after that.

We can discuss the subject, offer additional references for others, ask advice but we may not show any work associated with the challenge!!

This month we're using a flower that happily blooms gorgeously during the winter months (mostly indoors) and doesn't like it too hot! Strange, because it looks so delicate and pretty and seems summery!

(I did have something else in mind but the images were depressing me so you're having these instead!) ................

Re: Plant Parade: our New Year Challenge, Jan 2017

Hi Maureen

These are such beautiful cyclamens - brings back memories...

I've never participated on this forum, so I have a couple of questions:

..... are digital works acceptable here?

..... if I were to end up with an abstraction, should I refrain from posting it?

Any answers to the above are fine - even if not able to participate, I'll look forward to seeing everyone's work at the end of the month

Re: Plant Parade: our New Year Challenge, Jan 2017

Hi Pine - digitals are very acceptable - some of use that medium frequently!

Any interpretation is also acceptable though we don't get many very abstract works. ...... post whatever you end up with!

Thanks Maureen - I'm inevitably the last to know what I'll end up with, but whatever it is, I'll toss it into the mix
