Summertime Blues by: Joyce Masongsong-Ray

Blue Octopus by Joyce Masongsong-Ray

I scribbled this at the SCBWI-MI SHINE event in Lansing this month, on the event agenda... but the paper was green. So I blue-ized it on the computer. Magic!

July's Theme: "Those Summertime Blues"

Hi Scribblers!

Just got back from exhibiting at an "up north" art show and celebrating the ol' red, white, and blue's Fourth of July among the Manistee pine forest's azure skies along Lake Michigan's ultramarine waters. Hence, this month's theme--Those Summertime Blues.

Gimme your blues! Your vaca blues, your BBQing blues or your sunburn blues, in your blue-green or violet blue hues. Put on your Scribbler cap, grab a brush and capture those cerulean moments before they fade away. Deadline for this theme is July 31, 2011.

Stay cool!
Lori Taylor
