Three Muses - Butterfly

FOREST VISITOR      Background is a composite of 5 different photos, butterfly is from Dover Publications.    Somehow this scene reminds me of Gene Stratton Porter's "Girl of the Limberlost".  Butterflies are such wonders of nature.  I have always been fascinated by the story of the Monarch butterflies of the northern U.S. who, in autumn, migrate thousands of miles to central Mexico for the winter.   What amazing strength in those fragile wings!

Dezinaworld - Ocean Shades

Blue is my favorite color, and the many shades of it found in the ocean are incredibly beautiful.

Digital Whisper - Falling Leaves

Tucked away in the hills of Brown County, Indiana, near a little town called Bean Blossom, there's a quaint little restaurant called "The Farmhouse Restaurant".  It's one of my favorite places to visit in the Fall when the leaves are drifting down.  This is a scene from that spot, and the "visitor" is a sketch of mine.  Thanks for your visit.

Take a Word - Headgear

I've always been partial to the cloche hats of the 20's.  There's something incredibly feminine about them.  It's sad we don't see women wearing hats any more.

SPA - The Beatles

SPA has chosen The Beatles for this week's challenge.  I've captured the images from an album cover and used elements from Finecrafted Designs to create this street corner.  Thanks for stopping by!

Dezinaworld - Wings

Scene and bird are cybersurfed.  The lines are from a poem by Mary Oliver entitled "The Catbird".  The lines seem to express so well the freedom of the catbird who sings when he wishes, no worries for pay, and has no need for pockets in his wings.   Thanks for indulging me!
