The Summer of Color - Fini!

"The sun rose brilliantly above, reflecting the hues of red, orange, lavender and blue in the pond before me. The viridian shadows changed to lemon yellow and lime green as the light washed the morning and I tried in vain to save a piece of this miracle on canvas."
- Mary Erickson



Thank You!
Thank you for joining me in The Summer of Color! Thank you to those who participated by sharing their art and heart with us throughout the course of the event, thank you to those who fostered such a lovely community on Facebook and Flickr, and thank you to those who took the time to follow me personally.  It has been a pleasure getting to know and learn from you all. 


But Before We Go:
I'm happy to announce that the winner of our last - very colorful and sparkly - giveaway (pictured in the post below) is. . .



Please Email me your address and I'll get the goods right out.


Until We Meet Again . . .
Although I know we'll stay in touch, sadly, we will have to wait until next June before we begin our Summer of Color party again. . . .


June 4, 2012

Until then, keep creating and keep it colorful . . . I can't wait to see what you come up with!


Sincerely Yours,
Kristin xo

Well, I'll be right here visiting you and seeing what that creative mind of yours is working on. This is one of the best challenge events that I've participated in--besides being fun to do, it was a great way to learn more about utlizing color in your art. Thanks once again Kristin--I know this was a major commitment for you.
