A To Z Art Project - Letter A

Okay, here's the day to begin the A2Z art challenge. The day to post what my creative imagination came up with to represent the letter A.
Did you see it? Yeah, that's right. You're not going blind. NOTHING. I got nothing as I tried to come up with something more interesting than an apple to represent the letter A. Oh sure, I came up with aardvark, armadillo, air, armoire, etc. but I didn't get excited about any of them. So....

I kinda reverted back to an apple. Actually, its about a block away from apple.

A IS FOR ASPARAGUS!! Yipeee.... YaHoooooo!!! How exciting is that?!?!

ink sketch, watercolor, cardstock.

Below is the same drawing, but I intensified the color just a tad and made it a little brighter. You know, just for the heck of it.

Next week the letter will be B. And bending it a little, such as dusty duck did, is perfectly okay. You will also note, maybe, that I changed the name of the game from art challenge to art project. "Challenge" makes it seem like we are in competition with each other and I want to take the 'personal' competition away.

Anyone can join in and at any time. If you're not a regular, please leave a comment here so I can go take a look at what you've done. You'll be a 'regular' from there on, even if you only post a letter art project once in a while.

Good job on your asparagus!! I like it! And I'm happy it's not a challenge but a project. Works for me! Sandy and I had a lot of fun with this one, especially since we decided to incorporate her Arthur into my project and in hers he has a leaf of artichoke in his paw and a similar background. It was like playing!

Did i also mention that besides art work of fruit I love artwork of asparagus. I don't know how many times I've seen asparagus in a painting or add and thought I wanted to try painting it.

good job. I like it a lot. and feel free to let Arthur come visit into a letter anytime...(if you're feeling playful)...

Great Aspargus...I wish I had that instead of the peas I had tonight!!
Loved the colors you used.
I'm in...but once a week on Wed. All I can do until after Christmas!
My "A" is ready to publish on Wed. I will link you and Sandy to mine so people can see yours too.
