Ann has chosen Blue and White, reminiscent of her trip to Greece. Blue is my favorite color, so I blended several lovely bits of blue, and topped them with a charming blue specimen of the deep. Thanks for indulging me!
The challenge is black and white . My lady (who looks a bit evil, I think!) is from a vintage Vogue cover, the poppy credit to Christina Renee Designs, the graphic googled. I can never resist putting a pop of red in a black and white piece. Thanks for your visit!
Marie chose Sea Life for her challenge this week. Looking at the sea always makes me think of old sailing ships and ship captains who dared to set sail on vast waters in their insatiable zest to see the other side. My background here is a composite of a couple of vintage paintings, some filters and some painting. The old ship captain is from a vintage German painting by H. Haerendel. I love to build new stories from old! Thanks for your visit.
Another creative challenge from Patti - Hide and Seek. Background here is a photo my granddaughter took of an old building in Bean Blossom, Indiana, on a recent visit. The little girl has been in my stash for so long the source is lost in the pages of time, as is the face in the window. I love the weathered red paint on this old building!
A bit of street art that makes a girl hold tight to her big brother's hand! They probably won't want to go to the show. What do you think? I've had this clown in my stash for so long I don't remember the source, and his arms were borrowed from some other clown. I guess you could call him a composite clown!
This is made from a vintage glass printer's plate, which I purchased at a street sale many years ago. The grandma reminded me so much of my paternal grandmother I simply had to have it! I scanned it to get the image above. There were no clothespins in sight, so I had to import some. Forgive me. Thanks for stopping by!
A beautiful stone angel, photographed by my granddaughter in Crown Hill Cemetery in Indianapolis. Isn't she lovely? Even the Monarchs stop to visit! This is rather simplistic, but somehow she seemed to need to be the focus.
A little sunset exploration on the beach. This reminds me of vacations long ago and the shell I collected which, unbeknownst to me, was home to a hermit crab. It took me two days to realize why the shell didn't stay where I put it outside our motel door! Thanks, Patti, for a challenge that jostled some happy memories! The little girl is courtesy of the artist Jesse Wilcox Smith.
Women, it seems, spend a great deal of their time waiting for men to come home. This lass is just one of many. She was a freebie from somewhere; the window is credit to Jenn U Designs, and the weathered siding was cybersurfed. Thanks for your visit.
