We asked and you delivered! Dozens of our “grown up” readers responded to Cindy’s call for art submissions and we’re pleased to start occasionally featuring your weather-inspired works in our pages both in print and online.
Weather by Day has long featured art by budding young artists, but recently, Cindy has met quite a number of “grown-ups” who have picked up crayons, pencils, markers or even paint brushes to find their focus. If you’ve recently discovered your artistic talent or simply picked up a crayon for the first time in years, we’d like to feature your artwork on Weather By Day.
You can send a photo of a recent work of art along with a line or two about your inspiration or your reason for picking up the crayons after so many years to firstname.lastname@example.org
Today’s featured artist, Kimberly Dickson, of New Glasgow, N.S. said she’s “uncovered a new passion” and she wanted to share her work. Here’s what Kimberly had to say:
A friend forwarded me your recent article and suggested that I send you a few examples of my art. I follow your articles regularly but somehow had missed this one. As a child and in high school I loved to tackle art submissions for projects but never pursued it until recently. So as an adult with a career in communications for 30 plus years and counting, I have uncovered a new passion for painting on clay & canvas, making pottery, designing pottery jewellery, and photography.”
Great work, Kimberly!
We look forward to sharing your creations!
