Pieces entered into the exhibit can be almost any kind of art including pottery, sculpture, painting, poetry, quilting, basketry, jewelry, carving, writing, music, drawing, carving and photography.
I am considering entering my Turtle, Red Tree and Zinnia Pop images.

|Red Tree by Kara Stewart, Art in Photography|
I think of strength in this Red Tree image in two ways. First, in the literal - the strong, vivid colors. Red and blue pop against the gray and black. Secondly, the strength of the tree itself. I like the mental imagery of a tree holding fast in strong gusts. Its branches may sway and bend, some of its leaves may be blown off and flutter away, but the tree itself abides rooted, fixed and firm.
|Zinnia Pop by Kara Stewart, Art in Photography|
Zinnia Pop says strength to me just based on the colors! You can't get much stronger in color than these, unless you burn your eyes out.
