Now we can put this theory on test. Pick one of complementary color combinations pairs and try to use colors in right proportions show above. You can surely use other colors too, but try to use mainly those 2 complimentary colors. Instead of just one image, you can make two or even the triptych of all three color combinations.
Post your image/s of your art piece on your blog or other site, and leave a link to your work in our "comments" section. Instructions on how to leave a link to your work are located in the right sidebar. Just click on the words, "How to add your link in comment".
I can't wait to see your well-balanced co-ordinated color combinations.

Everything and everybody has some kind of roots, either real (like plants and trees have) or imaginary (like when we feel that our roots are in a certain place). This week I challenge you to make a piece of collage art showing your idea of roots. You can use one of these images or any other image you like. (The Bitter Root flower image comes from National Geographic Magazine via Wikisource, the tree image is a vignette from an old Finnish book.) You can make digital art or a manually created collage or a three dimensional piece - anything goes. My own version of the theme will be on my blog tomorrow or the day after tomorrow.
Please post an image of your art piece on your blog or other site, and leave a link to your work in our "comments" section. Instructions on how to leave a link to your work are located in the right sidebar. Just click on the words, "How to add your link in comment".
I'm really interested to see your ideas of 'roots' - I'm sure there are so many ways to think about this word. Thank you for participating in the challenge!

Glass goes back to antiquity. It was invented not long after pottery, and was cherished by the ancient Romans, Minoans, and Egyptians. Early glass was translucent and produced in myriad colors. The invention of transparent glass probably filled people with awe and delight.
Your challenge is to use this glass. Fill it with something, invert it over something, tilt it, twist it, melt it, shatter it. Let someone or something fondle it. Oh, and if you don't like this particular glass, please feel free to select one of your own. (This image is courtesy of made-in-china.com) The difference between a pessimist and an optimist is supposed to be whether they see a glass of liquid as half full or half empty. How do you feel about this glass? What would you fill it with?

Tiffany is out of town with family illness-I hope you will all keep her and hers in your thoughts and send some love in her direction.
I was very flattered that she asked me to offer you another installment in the 7 DEADLY SINS challenge since she was unable to post her own subject this week.
SOOOOOO GREED...comes right after Gluttony in the list and one would think they were similar if not the same but actually they take different faces when you study the description of each state of being.
Once again I am offering only my finished piece which is here and on my blog as well as my portfolio at Carbonmade (rickstdennis.carbonmade.com).
I look foreward to seeing how you approach this weeks challenge and as always...
