Art Bead Scene Editors Take the Challenge

                                         Still Life with Shells  1640  by Balthasar van der Ast
This month’s challenge painting is so evocative and reverberates a time past era when painting was how we saw parts of the world we would never know otherwise.  All these shells have a story to tell of beaches in  far away lands and tropical havens.
This month several of the  Art Bead Scene editors were inspired to take the challenge of this painting so I have put together a blog hop for you to visit to see how this exotic still life of seashells inspired them.   What creative fellow team members I have!!!  Enjoy feasting your eyes on  what they have made.
