April’s One Four Challenge is a more or less free month over at the Captivate Me blog.  You can use it however, although it’s billed as a Review month.  But I’m using it to post the rejects – the ones that didn’t make the cut for one reason or another, but I still like something about these edits.

Sorry I’m late for this but there it is just before the week is over!

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.

  1. I really like seeing your ‘rejects’ Janis! I especially like the first one. The colours are fantastic, so are the textures. I agree – there is something worth seeing in all of them! Thanks for sharing these 😃
