Revealing of Challenge #3 ..............


Great work ladies with our second challenge, all deserving of a round of celebration with many thanks to Brigitte for putting us on the path to Celebrate!
 It’s now time for challenge #3 ……. I’ve taken a few photos of some tools that I found laying in drawers. Why? Because TOOLS is Challenge #3!

Of course we don’t have to think in terms of concrete, physical tools, there are many tools that are somewhat difficult to photograph, such  as metaphor could be considered a literary tool, or staccato might be considered a tool in music, ‘rules’ may be considered a tool to help guide an activity, or could principles of design  be considered tools in creating and analyzing a piece of art or d├ęcor in a room? I think the list of tools could be endless. I always like to remember one of my art instructors telling me that artists can break the rules, so let TOOLS be a starting point and let it take you where it may.

Challenge #3 Assignment: TOOLS
Reveal Date: October 21st
Size: 16” square

Let’s dig out our favorite tools and put them to work! Let’s not forget to share some tidbits of our creative process as we head to reveal day. Have fun!
