"Amazing friends; Summer nights;
Chocolate ice cream; mud slide fights;
Half the Summer is gone already
So let's spend the rest of it; slow and steady."
For joining me in The Summer of Color 2! Believe it or not, we had an average of a 100 of us join in on a weekly basis this year and have amassed over 730 pictures in our Flickr pool! Crazy, right? Thank you for your time and dedication to this event, for sharing your art and heart with one another and for fostering such a beautiful community here and in our SOC playrooms, Facebook & Flickr. I also want to thank those of you who took the time to follow me personally. It has been a pleasure learning from and laughing with you all.
Before We Go:
We still have a Watermelon Winner to announce. The Random Number Generator was at it again and this time she selected . . .
Congratulations Paula! Please email me your address and I'll get your Watermelon goodies right out.

Speaking of 2013
Oh wait: we weren't saying anything about 2013! Oh well, let's talk about it anyway. . . .You saw this coming, but I am thrilled to officially announce our next play date, The Summer of Color 3: Artist's Choice!
That's right, another Summer of creativity, community and connection based upon your favorite color combinations. Next year, we're going back to the original inspiration, Somerset Studio's True Colors, in which the artists at play pick their own color palettes! As with previous years, it will be a free event open to all styles of art and mediums. We will begin Monday, June 3rd, 2013 with an introductory week followed by six weeks of color prompts, blog hops and fabulous giveaways based upon the two-color combinations that you vote on. So get your minds a thinkin' and your wheels a turnin' 'cause I know that with your help, next year will be the best yet . . . .
