Re: Seychelles


I love the water. For a few months last year, I was blessed to live just minutes away from the ocean (but not here). I really want to live as close as I can to the water. So, when Woot announced a theme where we were to design a shirt about what we love about earth, I knew I wanted a beach scene. Then I saw a video featuring the Seychelles Islands (near Africa) and I decided that was what I wanted to do.

Six colors on baby blue:
rust (raw umber?), sand (beige?), white, "dark" green, "light" green and gray.

Thank you for the feedback, SnowQueen. I'd been looking for your entry. Guess I'm not going to see it. I should probably find out what this "daily" thing you're talking about is.

Hi Shasham, you and I were both thinking beach...yes you know how 4 days of the week a shirt goes up for sale that wasn't in the derby?You can submit up to 4 designs per week on your own and try to get printed.

I spent 3 days working on this insane beach picture and I finally decided that I was going to try submitting it as a daily because it was so late in the game. My ego hates to not submit, but now it's way too late. I am going to love the design to pieces for the next few days then throw it into the daily pit and that will be that. I have such a problem with simplicity, I tried last week to simplify my design but I get too involved and can't stop. I really envy the artists who are able to depict their images with efficiency without sacrificing the artistry.

I love your beautiful beach scene this week, it looks like paradise, or heaven...one of those!! Beautiful job.

Re: Seychelles


Tropical beaches are indeed awesome - I think it comes from the sound and rhythm of the waves washing up on the sand combined with the trade-winds blowing through the palm fronds...or maybe it is the obvious curvature of the earth as you look to the horizon.
Few are so cursed that when they walk upon a warm sandy beach like the one in your design, they would continue to worry about email, cellphones, managers,or derby deadlines.

Now I am thinking Earth Day is a good time to play hooky and spend a day in nature. I wish it could be on the Seychelles islands, but Huntington Beach will do just fine.

TY for the daydream, and I hope you get out to enjoy nature where ever you are. GMV

Thanks. I did get to mow the lawn on Saturday. *g*
Seriously, it's a good idea, and might be a good way to spend Thursday.

You can change it, click on it, you can pick a new one you like better or add your facebook picture.(My avatar had pickles and grey hair so I changed it!!)

It took me 3 days to change mine, I had to do all kinds of acrobatics...I opened my facebook up, I searched the woot site for a link and well eventually a screen came up that asked me if I wanted to connect the two...I will try to figure out how I did it and let you know...or if anyone else can help, that would make it faster...OK, update below...
