Ons EERSTE erkennings in die Nuwe Jaar! / Our very first features in 2013

Soos julle kan sien, is al twaalf hierdie erkennings KUNSWERKE. Die rede is: Ons wil ons KUNSTENAARS aanmoedig om asb. MEER KUNS vir ons te stuur. Gryp met nuwe lus en ywer die kwasse en skilder jou hart uit! Ons sien uit na nuwe werk in die Nuwe Jaar!

Maak ook asb. seker dat jy aan ons uitdaging deelneem, ons wag vir jou!

As you can see, al twelve features are ARTWORKS. The reason being that we would like to encourage all our FINE ARTISTS to send us more art works. Get inspired, grab those brushes and paint to your heart’s content! We really look forward to new art in the New Year!

All FINE ARTISTS also please participate in the Art challenge, we look forward to your entries!

Dankie for featuring my painting “Lion Love” – and congratulations to everyone else, especially Stephie for her beautiful painting (love the light and joy in it!!!) and Konstantinos for his tranquil photograph!!
Don’t want to be self-indulgent but it will be 41 degrees celcius here in Melbourne tomorrow and we are feeling very nervous about the extreme bushfire conditions. Please keep your thumbs held and fingers crossed we are all safe!!!
Thankyou
Lynda :-))))

Beautiful selections, congratulations to all!
Veel geluk aan al die erkende lede, pragtige werk!

Congratulations Konstantinos and Stephie, great work!

Lynda, I have total sympathy with the heat you’re going to be experiencing! We’ve been suffering temps in the mid-thirties, so 41℃ is just absolutely beyond my imagination! Especially holding thumbs that no bushfires happen, you are in our thoughts!
