The December theme for our 2014 CDA Challenge was “Putting on the Glitz”. What a great time I had sorting through images captured over the past three weeks whilst touring Austrian and German Christmas and Advent markets, visiting friends and relatives in their homes and admiring their decorations.
This slide show concludes my challenge to celebrate one creative act a day throughout 2014. I realize that most of my contributions were made with my camera… and not with fabric and paper. However, shortly after I committed to collaborating with Elinor Burwash to create this challenge, life (as it so often does) changed and added numerous travel and teaching stops to my already busy calendar. To stay focused I carry my camera to gather and record impressions to be used as inspiration once I return to my studio.
Just in case you have not heard about the CDA (Creative Daily Act Challenge) here are links to the last 11 months:
January – In the Bleak Mid-Winter

October – Black Magic
November – Fire on High
As we gather with my sister and her husband I reflect on the past twelve months, the incredible opportunities presented to me, the wonderful and creative people I have met, the new friends I have made across Canada and the US and Europe. I am grateful for these opportunities and the new connections. Thank you everyone! I want to wish all of you a wonderful evening and may 2015 continue to bring you love, health, happiness and prosperity!
