NOTE TO OUR ARTISTS:

It is with immense sadness Ann and I report that our very dear friend, Marie Markham, passed away this morning after a year-long battle with illness following her surgery a year ago. Marie and I met on a pen pal site in 1999 and have communicated almost daily since then. She was the driving force in establishing our three digital art challenge blogs--Take a Word , Three Muses, and Digitalmania. Our friend, Ann Baker from the UK, joined us and we three friends who have never met managed the three blogs for over ten years. Ann and I have continued to manage them during Marie's illness. We have sorely missed her talent and wit. We know you join us in extending our deepest sympathy to Marie's family in Perth.

The Three Muses Challenge - The Written Word


CHECK OUT THE POST BELOW THIS ONE TO FIND OUT WHO THE WINNERS ARE IN OUR SECOND ANNIVERSARY CHALLENGE!

SEE BELOW FOR THE TEXT OF THE NEWSPAPER MESSAGE.

This week we are still celebrating.  The theme is "The Written Word" and mine comes in the shape of a newspaper story.  The idea is to use any type of text in your artwork from handwriting to hieroglyphics.  Check my blog HERE for credits.

"Who would have thought, two years ago, that the Muses challenge would still be running successfully.  We now have a permanent record of hundreds of pieces of art, lovingly created by our members who come from all the various forms of artistic expression.

As we live in far distant corners of the planet, we are not able to celebrate together but we ARE together in spirit.  The best thing about a challenge is that it isn't just a question of art but the friendships we make and the wonderful, generous people we encounter.  Here's to you all!"
