Monkeysidebars Words Challenge my Abstract Brain

Julie – Chicago Abstract Painter – the best abstract artist I know.

The creations are so well executed; it sings every time… even if abstract is not for you there is always something special in Julie’s work that makes them all timeless pieces of art. This one in particular was for Wednesday, November 27 for the word EBULLITION selected by Kerilyn.

Making art by Julie Richman, Chicago Abstract Painter

Monkeysidebars words, selected by members, are announced in time for  Wednesday and Sunday posting.  My problem is that although  the words may have a particular and useful definition, the visual interpretation can be difficult for me.  My intent is to transform visual terms into an abstract image that will suggest the meaning of a word.  This image is my interpretation of the word “Ebullition.” By drawing a sense of explosive force I think I did do that. But it is up to the viewer to decide whether or not I achieved that goal. Today the word is “Herald” and it can mean an announcement or a standard bearer at an event.  Or portents of things to come or about to happen.  For example Daffodils are a herald of Spring.

About Tabitha Raincloud

I used to draw all the time... then there was a very long gap till I acquired a Draw Something addiction that began in March 2012 which threw me into the world of digital drawing. I now mainly use a drawing app called Sketch Club and have recently created a website for a drawing game my friend and I have invented called Monkey Side Bars. Monkey Side Bars is a twice-a-week (for now a once-a-week) drawing game where you are challenged to a piece of art on a specific theme. Players take turns selecting the theme for each round. On the reveal date for each round, we co-ordinate a mass posting to Instagram simultaneously across the globe. The game is open to all who wish to participate. We welcome all levels of skill from beginners to hobbyists to professionals. All you need is a creative mind, a sense of humor, and a willingness to try. You might have heard it through the ape vine… This game will have you hooked on the monkey bars. Like a monkey likes a banana… it has that appeal. Come monkey around with us and see what all the fuss is about.
