One of the requirements, however, is that you use an art bead which they defined as ..."An art bead is a bead, charm, button or finding made by an independent artist. Art beads are the vision and handiwork of an individual artist." Unfortunately, at this time, I use commercially produced beads in the creation of my jewelry. Although, I wanted to start dabbling in clays...I still have yet to start making my own beads. Thus, I am unable to join the wonderful challenge on the site.
However...I figured...why not just go ahead with the challenge using whatever I have. I may not be able to enter it into the contest but, perhaps I can get over my rut! So, I am giving it a go!!! Make it a personal challenge....And if anybody out there that for some reason or another cannot enter the contest at the Art Bead Scene Challenge but, would still like to give it a try...let me know!!!
So this month...the challenge artist is Wayne Thiebaud. This is the painting they chose....
