2009 Challenges

One of the art groups I belong to is Oriental Stamp Art (OSA.) Obviously this group concentrates on creating and learning abour Oriental art and culture. This year marks the tenth year of OSA and we are immersed in challenges and swaps. There are two special weekly challenges this year - design and theme/subject. Our first theme is "Zen," creating an interpretation of our personal vision of Zen. I chose an image which has always intrigued me, a serene yet mysterious view of a boat floating away towards the unknown. The design challenge is to use a central image and enhance it with the three circles. I was able to combine the two, and (hopefully!) will be able to do this for the next 51 weeks!!!!!
