That's My World - City Art part II

I am really happy to be back after such a long absence. Back on July 21 I did part I of the art around my hometown and today I am back with part II:)

This dolphin fountain is exactly the same as one in Santa Barbara, Ca. It is a "Sister City" thing! LOL! The fountain is located at one end of the boardwalk, across the street from the main square (Plaza).

I call this statue "The Pleading Angel" it is also on the boardwalk and it is newer than the dolphin fountain.

The Mexican Dancers are incredible! The detailing is amazing! They are performing a typical Mexican song called "Guadalajara" and they "dance" 24/7!

I plan on returning next week with more photos of art, I hope you do too! Thank you for stopping by ~

Think Monday - Think ATC

Bottles is the challenge for this week at http://tmta.wordpress.com

Since I am JUST getting back my inspiration I kept it very simple with a Mexican lottery card and - flag colors -metalic mesh as background. I am really sorry about the glare, I could not come up with a glareless photo :(

Mixed Media Monday - Meaningful Music

Today I am taking part - for the first time ever - in the fun mix media art challenge at http://mixedmediamonday.wordpress.com/ The idea is to chose a piece of music that is meaningful to you, and create a piece of art around it.

I chose some instrumental music - I find it easier to create listening to that type of music, and since I am big on recycling - my art journal is last year's agenda - I took out several scraps of paper and images and this is what I came up with... Not bad, I think - albeit minimalist - after being un-inspired for so long :)

INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE ~

I almost forgot this most important day. I pray for international peace not only today but everday. I invite you to visit http://internationaldayofpeace.org/news_and_updates/ideas-to-promote-peace-day-and-preview-of-2009-peace-day-events-projects for suggestions, ideas and more information on the subject. The following was suggested as a post on our facebook accounts; I do have one, however, I am sure is deemed inactive as I do not seem to get into it. Therefore I decided to post it here:
“We hope that people, communities and nations everywhere will participate in this year’s observance of the International Day of Peace on September 21st".

May you have a peaceful day ~
