2011 Challenge

Our InspiredArts Guild met the last week.  On the agenda was a decision regarding the 2011 challenge.  Several suggestions, ideas and random thoughts were made.  We ended up choosing Paul Klee's painting "The Balloon".  Everyone is fascinated by the images that this painting evokes.  The colors are a plus too - although we are not limited by color nor even by design.  Each of us will take this picture and redesign it in our own way.

Among our members' skills are felting, rug hooking, punchneedle, jewelry, beading, photography, stitchery - need I go on!  I can only imagine what each person will create with inspiration from this picture.

Luckily for us, and by design, we have given ourselves until the August meeting to meet the challenge.  I can hardly wait until the unveiling in August -- but then I don't want to hurry it because I too will be meeting this deadline and no there's no fun in hurrying!

  1. Penny, I can't wait to see what you create. Have you ever thought of taking a hot-air balloon ride? Gita

  2. I love the painting!

    Luckily I was able to visit the Zentrum Paul Klee in Bern a couple of years back. Stunning! It was the first time I'd seen any of his work "in the flesh".

    I'll be interested to see what you folks do with it :-)

  3. I can't wait to see what everyone does with this!

  4. I'm looking forward to seeing how everyone interprets this! It sounds like an interesting guild with so many different interests.

  5. Be cool to see what you do with this. Gilly
