Alphabet Challenge--A is for _________

Sometimes, when I am looking for inspiration and am stumped, I go back to the old children's word game, "A my name is Alice...

This week's challenge is to include something in your Art that begins with the letter A.  I can be the focal point, or just one element among many, like ANGEL or ANIMAL or APPLE or ALBATROSS.
 It could be the name of a color, like AQUAMARINE or ALIZARIN crimson or ALICE blue.
It could be an action like ASLEEP or ANGRY.

I hope you have fun with this one, and once again, techno-challenged as I am, please just leave a comment with a link to your art piece.

Open Theme this Week

Hi Everyone!

Since Kaylene has left our team we're still moving our schedule around--and this week is no one's!

So let your soul wander, get your fingers inky and sticky, explore all those digital images you are going to use someday, throw a virtual dart at your image file list and make some art!

Thanks for your patience!

Some random images from my files...
