Title: Summer in the Shire
Rating: G
Theme: Miniatures
Element: -

Artist's Notes: I found it hard to come across suitable subjects for this and fear my offering isn't very good compared to the others, but I wanted to take part.I decided to imagine Hobbit children making daisy chains and telling the time with dandelion clocks during long summer days.

Aww...what a sweet image! Yes, I can just imagine that too! In fact, I can see our four little future heroes sprawled on The Hill atop Bag End and doing just such a thing.

(BTW: would you please edit the subject line to put the word Art: at the beginning?)

I'm so pleased you liked this.I can imagine our Hobbit heroes playing with dandelion clocks too.

Apologies for the wrong heading which I hope I've fixed.

It's fine! People forget about the subject line all the time (myself included!)

I used to make clover chains and then feed them to our rabbits.

I've posted this for you over at MPTT. You may want to edit the entry or change some of the info.

It looks great thank you. I must admit I never tried uploading my responses to the art challenges to the community. I tried tonight to add my paths slideshow but couldn't get it to work.

It's not hard-- I found a sneaky short-cut: simply cut and past directly from your LJ post, making sure only to include the post (and pics) itself and not the "side material" (like tags and icons and comments)! Paste it in using the tiny MCE mode, and it seems to work fine!

I wanted to get up the art from the special today, but may not have time as we have some errands to run-- if you get the chance you might want to try it. We will be including Art in the awards.

I can't find any category for photographs in the awards as mine aren't manipulated.I fear I've no clue about other than basic editing being a technical dunce!

Oh, photography (as in regular photography) is part of what I'd consider traditional art! (To me, that's any art in which the artist works directly with the original material, like you do with your photographs, rather than using a computer to digitally manipulate the images.)

I'm hoping if all goes well to get more specific with those categories next year!

Hmm-- about the slides-- you may want to email Dawn about that! She may know how to get them to work.
