Kim of IMGIRL
, is hosting her first Inspiration Avenue
Challenge, her theme, "Days of the Week"
as according to the nursery rhyme. We were challenged to create a piece of art that fits the description for the day we were born. Kim even included a link so we could determine that. :)
Monday's child is fair of face,
Tuesday's child is full of grace,
Wednesday's child is full of woe,
Thursday's child has far to go,
Friday's child is loving and giving,
Saturday's child works hard for his living,
And the child that is born on the Sabbath day
Is bonny and blithe, and good and gay.
It turned out I was born on a Wednesday.... "full of woe".
I tend to create more uplifting or even whimsical art & landscapes and rarely create anything somber, so this was a bit of stretch! What kept going though through my head was the classic Spiritual... "Nobody knows the trouble I've seen, nobody knows but Jesus. Nobody knows the trouble I've seen; Glory Hallelujah."
I painted this with burnt umber ink and and a bit of Mayan Blue watercolor, on 5x7 Fabriano Hot Pressed paper.
For this version I played around and digitally enhanced the color a bit .
It still isn't too late to submit your entry for the Inspiration Avenue's challenge, you have till Sunday noon!
Thanks so much Kim for this interesting & terrific challenge! I really enjoyed this!... oh maybe i shouldn't say that since i'm a woeful Wednesday child... revise that... it was a miserable experience! LOL ;D
