I participated in yet another personal art challenge on Fine Art America this past weekend. The theme for this challenge was Wealth as stated in the challenge discussion: Images should portray wealth in some format. How is up to you.
There were many definitions both online and in the challenge as artists were interpreting the concept. I used these definitions for the three images I created:
- An abundance of valuable material possessions or resources; riches.
- The state of being rich; affluence.
- Goods and resources having value in terms of exchange or use.
I researched various forms of currency using the first and last definition above.
There were the obvious concepts of money, health, spirituality and family but the most creative concept and title the first day was an image of an overgrown plot of land called “A Wealth Of Weeds”. How creative to think of weeds as wealth!
What comes to your mind when you hear the word Wealth?
Do you also think of things in abundance?
What is wealth to you?
Feel free to share your definition and thoughts on this theme by commenting below.
