Collectif Creativity: 17Sep2022

By Susan Irving

 A theme I am currently interested in is cities, seen in green.  I play with shapes and various media. Ofen I use the Microsoft Fresh Paint app to try things out, before committing to doing anything on canvas. 

The first one is my latest attempt, Green City Fresh Paint.

The second is a small mixed media on canvas that has since been sold, Green City Spring.

The third is Night in the Green City.

This is Apartment and Evergreens Green City.

The fifth is another Fresh paint effort.

Number six, Summer in the Green City, was entered in our Summer theme for July,  but I thought I’d throw it in again for context.

So many ways to be creative! Collectif members, share your impulses! Send JPG image(s) to with up to 100 words per image describing what you did, materials used, inspiration, etc. Share how/if creativity affects (controls?) your life. Please include size (height by width), title & media for all images.  

Writers – we really want to hear from you too! Send poetry, lyrics, an excerpt. Please try to include an illustration of some sort. 

Share informative, inspiring Show & Tell demonstrating the creative mind.


  1. These are quite interesting. I’m thinking they would look very impressive hanging together as a collection – variations on a theme 🙂
