08.29.17 through 09.19.17
These last three weeks have been crazy for everyone, between the terrible forest fires on the west coast and the absolutely tragic damage from Hurricane Urma our hearts are simply worn out from worrying about everyone affected. We decided with all the chaos to extend this theme another week. The amazing coincidence of this theme having been water was not lost on us, everything is truly connected. The absence of water on the west coast where it is usually so lush and damp has caused some of the worst fires this year than we have ever seen before, and yet, on the other side of the country there is more water than anyone can handle in the wake of Urma. Water is ever fickle and ever unpredictable, it sustains our bodies and has the power to destroy entire cities, it calms us, saves us, revives and refreshes us, and terrifies us all at once.
Water also inspires us, and that is what we want to show you today.
Thank you to our very own Michèle Tremblay for choosing and judging this theme.
Congratulations to our spotlight artist Sarah Villarreal Photography
Michele had this to say about your image: "This is a perfect flawed image with so many beautiful elements in it. Child and water goes together, this wonderful scene powerfully illustrates that happy relation. The reflection of running kids in the water adds a magic touch, as well as this bird flying to meet them."
Michele's top 9 in no particular order:
Our next theme is -Favourite Flawed Technique- it will run for 2 weeks and we encourage you to tell us how and why you use your favourite flawed technique and how it has helped you grow as an artist!
Each admin will be showing their favourites throughout the theme so keep your eye out! Thank you for all the support and in turn we support you in any way we can.
