Weather

Here on the East Coast of the U.S., we had an exceptionally snowy winter, capped off on St. Patrick's Day (less than a week before official Spring!) by 8 inches of snow. In general the world's weather seems to me to be getting more extreme. We're learning weather terms we'd rather not have to learn: derecho, El Nino, polar vortex. Lives are disrupted and homes destroyed. Not a happy way to add to one's vocabulary.

This week, please incorporate the idea of "weather" in your collages. Your art can be on the serious side, or the lighter side. (I've always wondered if it ever rains any other kind of animal besides cats and dogs.) You can show us the current weather in your part of the world, tell us you idea of perfect weather, or give us a fantasy weather scenario only you can imagine.

Here are some images from Wikimedia Commons that you may use in your art if you wish, or use as inspiration. Please leave your link below, using our link feature, or in the comments section below.

Please stay warm and dry while you create your weather art!
