Three Muses - Mail Art

Snail mail is becoming a thing of the past.   We will lose the thrill of going to the mailbox and finding a surprise note from a friend.   Maybe mail art will revive it!!   I send good wishes to all my friends in blogland!!

Take a Word - Seasons Greetings

Happiest of Holidays to all my friends in Blogdom.   All elements are cybersurfed, with exception of the Santa, whom I created by tracing him on wood, cutting him out with a band saw, oil painting him, and sanded to achieve an aged look.  He is one of several vintage Santas I made about 25 years ago, and they grace my mantel each Christmas.  I'm sure he never dreamed he'd be featured in a digital art Christmas greeting!!  Thanks for stopping by.

Take a Word - Male

The theme was "Male" and no one said it had to be a human type male!   Since it's been snowing in my world, and the cardinals have been visiting my birdfeeder, and the males are so pretty and red against the snow, I couldn't resist featuring one.  I haven't seen one in a Santa hat yet, but wouldn't that be a sight to behold??   Credit to Creates Wings Designs.

Three Muses - Africa

Africa is a timely choice for our theme this week, in event of Mandela's death.   He was a remarkable man, much revered by all who knew him.  Too bad there aren't more such men in leadership of their countries.

Take a Word - Two

Many years ago I was a member of Toastmasters, and wrote a speech entitled "What We See is What We Get".   The concept was that how we perceive ourselves has a great deal to do with what we achieve.  This piece for this week's Take a Word challenge is meant to illustrate that thought.  Background and elements are credit to Create Wings Designs.  Image is a freebie acquired long ago.  Thanks for visiting me!
