Winning Treasury Challenge #133

A few words from DonnaWalker...

This has been a spectacular week full of creativity, soul, art, mystery, music, and dance! Thank you to all the nonteamies for participating and to Eugenia for choosing my treasury last week. And a special thank you to all the unseen volunteers who make this team possible.

For the winning treasury this week I chose Nicolas from MyAntartica: Paracosm.

This was a new vocabulary word for all, myself included. At first glance I thought this was dark and too different. Then I took the time to think. And then each item in the treasury seemed to fall into place, each had a story to tell. Nicolas created a visual dream, a world of his own, a new landscape. And that is what art is all about. All we can do is put our vision out to the world and hope it connects. Nicolas did that.

Having said all that, many many other treasuries touched my heart too. I had no easy time to narrow my favorites. I appreciate the time and thought and soul put into each one and I am honored that my little painting inspired such creativity. Thank you all!
