Take a Word - Butterflies

My wee beauty is from World's Greatest Photos, Monarchs have been in my stash for so long I've lost the source.   I love the sweet look of wonder on her face.    Thank you for visiting us!

Sunday Postcard - Sports

In the midst of this interminable drought and heat, my thoughts turned to a "cool" sport.   Ahhh, it makes me feel refreshed just to think of it!   My skier is from Flickr Collage Images (Plaisanter).   Thanks for visiting!

Three Muses - Steampunked

I'm sure this distinguished old gent would be horrified to find himself steampunked.....then again, who knows?  There are "a million stories in the naked city"!

Sunday Postcard - London

Sunday Postcard chose London for their theme this week.   As things are gearing up for the Olympics it's a timely theme.   I tried to put the Olympic torch as an overlay in this piece.   Great challenge!

Three Muses - Alone

I have never been very good at art with lots of "white space", so I thought I'd give it a try again.  I used a mask from Kubivet, and an image from Flickr Collage images.   Thanks for looking!

Take a Word - Moon

I can't remember where I found this old abandoned house, but I love it 'cause it looks haunted.  It just cried for some blackbirds on the fence, and a full moon looking down.  Thanks for stopping by!

Sunday Postcard - Happy

Isn't it true that it's the simple pleasures in life that make us happy?    This little guy seems to have found the one thing that pleases him most!   Thanks for looking!

Three Muses - Bird

Background and cage credit to Catherine Designs; the fine-feathered bird is a figment of my imagination, sketched, colored with Prismacolor pencils and Sharpies, and scanned onto background.   Thanks for looking.

Take a Word - Blue

The image is from a Paul delaRoche painting, background mask by Kubivet,  flowers credit to Christina Renee Designs....and I forgot to make note of the background.  Mea culpa.

Three Muses - Rain

This is pure wishful thinking.  We are in the midst of a drought at the moment, and a rainy day would be a most welcome sight.   I'd surely take a walk in the rain....and I just might get wet on purpose!!!    The rainwalker is my own sketch, scanned, tweaked and added to the background.  Thanks for looking.  SEND RAIN!

Take a Word - Music

I wonder how many teenagers today would even know what is the source of music in this scene!   Things have certainly changed.
