FAT Tuesday Artist Spotlight #4

I created FAT Tuesday to showcase inspiring artists and to provide a forum for Artists to share their work with one another--this includes all types of arts, photography and crafts, including writing and poetry.  If you would like to take part in FAT Tuesday, check out these guidelines:
* Upload what you want to share, onto your blog.
*  Don't forget to leave a link to your art on Linky tools.
*  Be sure to visit other artists who have left their link.
*  Leave a comment when you visit each artist's blog 
(We artists need to encourage each other!)
*  Be sure to put a link to FAT Tuesday on your blog page.
(You can copy the button at the bottom of the page if you'd like.) 

Becky's artwork is filled with whimsical beauty.  She is a Mixed Media Artist who shares her joy of the things which bring her happiness.  She writes, "Sometimes the things I like are a bit silly but I like to laugh and so I hope you will be able to laugh along with me."

To visit see more of Becky's wonderful artwork, visit her at Whymsical Musings!

I am in awe of Desiree's talent!  She dabbles in many mediums, one of which is painting.  As you can see from this piece her work is amazing.  Her quilts are also extraordinary.  This talented artist's imagination has no bounds.  She says, "I am on a creative journey, and I would love for you to join me. Multimedia entertainment! Who knows what I will be working on next!?"

Well, I for one can hardly wait to see!  To see more of Desiree's lovely work, visit The Clothesline!

I only recently discovered the inspiring work of Bleu Turrell.  His graphite illustrations are soft and detailed.  They take my breath away.  Bleu writes, "My creative focus has been art and illustration for a while. I like to play around and try new things."

To find his fabulous "experimental and personal works" visit Bleu at Daily Artwork by Bleu Turrell.

 Krista's artwork always makes me smile.  There is something about her sense of humor and the way she see life--and shares it with the rest of the world that delights my heart.  She says, "I love to paint anything that celebrates life and the God who made us."  Indeed, her artwork shouts with joy!

To see more of this sweet artist's work, visit Krista at Krista Hamrick Illustrations!

Paula is a writer of poems and deeply thoughtful words.  She photoshops her poetry into old postcards and vintage artwork.  There have been so many times she has put into words, that nebulous thing which my heart senses and feels, but cannot express.  Her heart is so tender, her thoughts so touching.

To find Paula please visit Tattered Gold.

I've loved exploring this! There's so many craft linkies out there, but not many that focus on art, and art ! So happy to find you!

Thanks for your comment on my leaves coloring pages, and for being the first to try out my linky. The linky was actually for people who tried out my printables to post pictures of their finished coloring pages...but when I saw your cat their I realized I had forgotten to add your button to the post, which I should have...so the same link and picture is in the post, just a little further down. :-)

I plan to leave the linky up for a LONG, LONG time, so if you do try out the coloring pages later and want to post what you did with them you can.

Thanks again for the giving people a chance to show off their art and for us to explore it!
