CHALLENGES

EFFUSIVE


PLAY NOW

copyright sharon borsavage 9-14-2009

"Effusive" was created for Helga's weekly challenge at My ARTisitic Life...it was the checkerboard challenge. I tried some new things this week and was fairly happy with the results....I am still unsure about a lot of things though, and am still testing a lot of waters. I have found some nice surprises though!
"Play Now" was created for Nancy B.'s weekly Crowabout challenge. One thing I have found out for sure is that almost everything I do involves flowers, greens, trees, vines, or growth of some sort. I really do love flowers, and I guess I feel that when I am working on a woman or an element, The thought always comes to my mind as to how I can extend this image, or elaborate, and growing things always come to mind. They also are very symbolic to me as far as spirtuality, strength, and reaching upward. I do remember that way back in college my main painting themes were mostly women in landscapes, abstract as they were, they were very similar to me. Another little tidbit into this mind of mine!

Sharon, I am running out of exuberant adjectives to describe your wonderful work!! So, just let me say: I love them!

Your love for flowers and also the way you preceive your place in the world through nature is very apparent in both your paper art and your jewelry!! That is one of the things that distinguish your work from others. It's also what make your work easily identifiable!! :)

Hi Sharon...like Renate, I'm running out of new words to describe your latest ATCs...both so rich and full of depth and character. I just don't see how you squeeze in the time to create these along with working full time. You're amazing!

I'm with Cindy I don't see how you get so much wonderful work done working full time. I work full time and can't imagine it. You must never sleep!

Being "unsure" is an artistic personality characteristic! LOL And (I think) most of us are still seeking the knowledge to figure it out. It's part of the driving force that makes our work grow.

You, My Sweet Darling, have figured out a LOT of things lately, and a wonderful, fresh style is emerging! What a joy to see your Nature Doodles swirling around your subjects so beautifully. Bravo! Hugs, Terri xoxo

Sharon, you've come so far and have a wonderful distinctive style of your own! I love the music in the grass of the play now piece. It such a subtle twist on the theme.
