Creative Tuesdays: Aqua Sailing Hope

This round of Creative Tuesdays is focusing on the theme, aqua. To be honest, I wasn't planning on participating as absolutely nothing came to my mind. Nope. Nada. Zilch. Uh huh. Well, until around lunch time today and this crossed my mind and I was like - well, I'll let you imagine my excitement when realizing I'd get to join C.T.'s lovely, creative peeps after all! So, come with me as we sail across the waters of life, bringing hope to those around us. :)

For more Creative Tuesdays contributions, pop in over at Mr. Toast's humble home and say hello.


  1. Just darling.... Alexandra I saw this on facebook and was hoping you would enter it for CT. I'm so glad to be back. Your loose watercolors excite me.... I truly loved your hummingbird the other day. Just exquisite. This piece of work it so interesting because not only is it Aqua....it's so full of detail and texture and adventure. Let's sail away.....I'm ready.

    1. OOh, I love wanda's dear comment here. Very true indeed. :)

  2. Loving the effect you have created with the water, and a wonderful uplifting message too, truly inspired!

  3. Oooh, I love this! Such a beautiful color and Hope is so important...

  4. Wow, well, you totally got me here. that is so funny. I saw this on the blog feed, as you know, and was admiring it before I even realised it was yours and for this CT too. You sneaky little thing! Love it. It's very uplifting and definitely adventurous too. Wonderful. Thank you so much, smoots, for adding this to the little co-op for all to see. :)

  5. this is wonderful! and I like that 'hope' is written there. the blues and greens are great combinations.

    hope you have a lovely day.

  6. So funky, I love the layers of line and texture.

  7. This is beautiful Alexandra. I love how you have framed it with the oval rope and floating a message in a bottle on top is pure brilliance. So glad this little piece of inspiration came and you could share it with us.

    Just love your hummingbird painting as well. Beautiful colours.

  8. Fabulous! I'm with Wanda, loving your loose watercolor paintings.

  9. I'm so glad you were able to create this masterpiece, Alexandra. I love the swirling aqua waters and that life is filled with "hope" even when we sail the highs and lows that life floats our way. Simply outstanding work!!!
    Oh, and the rope around the piece just sets this off beautifully. Thanks for sharing. :-)

  10. Oh Alexandra,
    So happy your inspiration made the deadline. I didn't this week. But you have given us a great picture of hope -

  11. Fab piece! And the anchor is such a sweet and meaningful touch. :)

  12. Often hope is the only anchor we have, and this speaks so beautifully to that.
