What is that white stuff coming from the sky?!!
by BigCatPhotos

Photographic Art
Location: Wildlife Heritage Foundation
Camera: Canon 40d; Lens 70-300m
Settings: Hand held. ISO400, 1/400 sec at F5.6

I love the contrary nature of this image. The image was taken in captivity on a English winters day but it makes you think about a lion, the King of the arid African savannah, facing a heavy snowfall for the first time in his life. The interest and intrigue in his eyes are there for all to see and I think that most people who view the image would love to know what he is thinking……..my thoughts were summed up in the title! The other reality that I would like this image to stress is that in the 1940’s there were estimated to be 400,000 lions across Africa and India; today there are believed to be fewer than 16,000 remaining. Can we really let one of the most iconic animals on this planet go extinct in the wild…….it is, unfortunately, a real possibility unless we stop trophy hunting and the illegal trading of animal parts.

Tree Dancers
by Robin Monroe

Traditional Art
Dimensions: 9 × 12 inches
Medium: Watercolor and Ink

This work was inspired by the beauty of nature, the joy and life that is all around us: Let us hear and see the wonders of nature in all of her glory…

The trees gently sway
with the soft blowing wind
picking up the beat
when the music begins
the sun rises and shines
to start the new day
as the birds carry a tune
for all of creation
to sing, dance and play

Rock Lady
by Peter Maudsley

Traditional Art
Dimensions: 65 cm x 102 cm
Medium: Oil paint on stretched canvas

This was inspired by the beauty of nature of one of my many treasured camping areas.
I wanted to capture the flow of water, the surrounding ecosystem and some sense of a nature spirit/guardian.

Karma Garden
by Peter Maudsley

Traditional Art
Dimensions: 65cm x 65cm
Medium: Oil paint on prepared board, strips of canvas, bits of wood, leaves and a plastic No. 3 token

The aim of this painting was to capture some sense of ecosystem or that there is a balance and inner play within the environment.
It would be a wonderful world if humans overall could be part of that balance instead of being the main contributors for natural unbalance.

Pod – in watercolor
by maxy

Traditional Art
Dimensions 11 X 15 inches
Medium: Watercolor, using Windsor and Newton watercolors

After many years of getting away from painting/drawing I now have the fun of getting back into it again… it’s especially fun after playing with 20 year old inks and a ..er…feather! (cool feather tho…) Yes, inspired!

Well now this is my first in watercolors since then using Windsor & Newton (love this company) watercolors and Strathmore watercolor cold press 11X15 paper and a whole lot of imagination…

A rare pod….

Drawing Day… created using just ink with a feather
by maxy

Traditional Art
Dimensions 8 X 10 inches
Medium: Ink using a large cut bird’s feather and Windsor and Newton inks

Just sat down with a package of inks.. found the black was all gone!!! .. all watered down and unusable… (these were my mom’s inks) but the other colors were there! I used Windsor & Newman’s inks and a feather I found in the woods snipped to make a ‘quill’ pen.. (I could not find a pen) and also a paper towel with water to make a ‘wash’. Gosh – I haven’t drawn or painted in some time now… it feels good! :-)

Just could not resist getting in to the spirit of drawing day! :-) I haven’t drawn since …er… um… 1978…. ???

The Honey Bee – a small but wonderfully clever insect – and we could not survive without them! I love them, they are not only gentle, losing their life only to protect themselves but such hardworkers – for mankind! We need to keep the honey bee alive our world would be a lot different without them!
