I've decided that our challenge theme will be "WISHES". What do you wish for? Do you wish for world peace? Chocolate? A house cleaner? A winning lottery ticket? Sunshine on a cloudy day? Donuts? (Ya, donuts would be nice right now!) We all make wishes multiple times a day. Sometimes for superfluous things, other times for truly important things. The common thread running through people is that we all wish, cross our fingers and hope our wishes come true.
This week let your creative spirit out and explore this theme. Let interconnections in your artistic brain jump from one thought to another until you come to just what you want to create to illuminate just what wishes and wishing is to YOU.
I must admit that one of my favorite songs from Disney is "When You Wish Upon A Star". In my childhood the song always sparked wonderfully creative thought about all the things I wanted to experience in my life. As I listened I'd think "what are my wishes?", "If I really do wish upon a star, will my wishes come true?". I believe in wishes but then I've always been a "believing child". I think wishing is important to our psychological health. If we have no wishes then where is our hope for the future? So, go ahead, make a wish, maybe it'll come true!
Here are some great examples to help inspire you in your artwork...
