  Age is only  a number --in my case a Really BIG number, but there you have it

When the prefect paint.net image is created, I will still be wondering "How they Do that?"- sigh☺️

Thank you all for your kind words. It means a lot to have such great support. Mum had a nice send off today with a lot of the family present.

Sadly on monday 23rd of January I lost a niece at the tender age of 33. It goes without saying that the family is crushed. Not a good start to our year. I will return to host the comp in the near future, but not sure how soon.

Once more, many thanks for the condolences. Those I have not yet rep'd I will give them when mine are refreshed again.

 

Drew.

I notice Pixey's link to Art Nouveau examples shows a preponderance of images of lovely young women. Though that was a common theme, there were many others, including peacocks, flowers, and dragonflies. Typical characteristics include sinuous lines and an emphasis on flat, poster-like colors, which was inspired by Japanese woodcuts. Louis Comfort Tiffany is associated with the style.

I've added another link with a few more variations that you mention ;)

Oh NO Drew, I'm so sorry! You take care of yourself and your loved ones. We'll be thinking about/praying for you.

I would like to request that Pixey extend the deadline of the Art Nouveau to make it a two-week competition. That Mosaic comp rather surprisingly had enough entries in a week, but it's the last in quite a while to do so. Also, I've been somewhat busy, and don't know if I'll have time by Saturday to complete an entry.

As soon as I woke up this morning I thought to myself, "I think I'll extend the Art Nouveau competition another week."  I too needed more time.

 

So, the completion is now extended to Saturday 11th February 2017.  The deadline being 7:pm (UK time) here is a link to the World Time

Art Nouveau seems like a very elegant theme thanks to the link by Pixey, showing posters of what I assume to be illustrations of women on the late 1800s. They are somewhat comparable to Mary Cassatt flat-color paintings, inspired by Japanese art that I read about in my opinion.

 

I would love if I can make one but too much work for me to achieve what I had in mind, especially that I imagined if I could model it from someone rather special that I also wish would celebrate Valentines Day with me.

 

I'm not motivated at the moment to try it or even start a canvass just to see how it could play out.

It's already Wednesday and there have been no entries into SOTW#163.  Is the Topic unfavorable and would another theme be more interesting?
