Magical Monday Meme, Creative EveryDay and Summer Colors

'Mint Chocolate Chip Lotus'



Welcome to our blog where I view life from the eyes of an artist soul and with my Assistant, ArtMuse Dog explore how creativity enhances the inner spirit.

This post being for Monday means Magical Monday Meme, blog hop for creative people and all mediums. Along with our blog hop today we are also sharing links and exploring artists of varied mediums. There are many different styles within the two blogs. Enjoy the variety as you click on the link (highlighted) and leave your supportive comments. It might seem like we are playing but it takes a lot of energy to create. Plus, the 'muse' needs to be 'on.'
Creative Everyday is around all year and has been for several years. Summer Colors is a delightful blog and is in its second year and the prompt is ice cream colors ~ this week's flavor is 'Mint Chocolate Chip'. So I have done a 'mint chocolate chip lotus in the Asian brush style method which is shown above. Enjoy these fantastic blogs. Do consider linking up with Magical Monday meme below with your own style of creativity. Thanks, ^_^














Wishing you a magical and happy week.


Hugs and namaste,


and



We love to have you post your comments, thoughts or questions to delight us all in the day, especially, ArtMuse Dog ^_^

  1. I don't know how you keep up with all the groups you are in! This painting does bring to mind mint chocolate chip ice cream. :) I may have missed it before, but did you get a chop with your name on? Cool!

    1. I type fast ~ LOL ~ Yes, I did get a chop in China and watched the girl carve it ~ ( I went to China and Tibet a few years ago ~ Tibet was my favorite) Both are beautiful countries but politically very different. Wishing you a magical creative day ~ ^_^

  5. I'm taking my maiden voyage here, Carol, linking my new blog, I Love You, Currie, which is basically the Gratitude Practise I've been sharing the past 5 years via email and Now want to share BEyond that reach. I didn't quite DO whatever I was supposed to DO with the thumbnail edit, but it still goes where it's supposed to so I guess I did something right!!

  6. Creating sure does take a lot of energy, Carol, and yes, that Muse must be on! That's why I am enjoying finding new motivational muses.

    I love your Mint Chocolate Chip Lotus painting! The brush style seems simplistic, though I know it is not.

  16. I keep running into you from both CED and now Summer of Color. I love the colorful use of the ice cream colors green and chocolate. But that red chop was simply over the top! It put everything else in perspective.
