Take a Word - Games

The challenge brought to mind the words of the song, and the muse took over.  All elements cybersurfed.  Yes, I know "while" is misspelled, but it came with the copied lyrics!  Thanks for looking!

Digital Whisper - Masquerade

"This Masquerade"  (Sung by the Carpenters)

Are we really happy
With this lonely game we play?
Looking for the right words to say
Searching but not finding understanding anyway
We're lost in this masquerade

Three Muses - Flapper

Ah, the ladies of the 20's were so stylish.  It's always fun to resurrect them again.   This one is from a vintage Vogue cover.

Take a Word - Happiness

Abraham Lincoln said words to the effect that we're only as happy as we decide to be.   I think he's probably right.  We need to dwell on things for which we're grateful, and keep an awareness of what's really important in life.  Great choice of challenge, Marie!

Digital Whisper - Black and White

Working in black and white is always a fun challenge.  I can never resist adding just a splash of color -- usually red, but this time I chose yellow.  Thanks for the challenge, Patti!  The image is a freebie, but I've lost the source.  If you know, please let me know.

Take a Word - Flowers

The most welcome flower of Spring---tulips.  In Oregon, where my daughter lives, there are fields of tulips that take one's breath away with their carpet of color and beauty.  Thanks for stopping by my blog.  I appreciate your visit and your comments.

Digital Whisper - Tiptoe

The background here is from an envelope my daughter sent me, the tiptoer body is a borrowed clip art, the face is a sketch by me, the wig from my software.   What I love most of all about digital art is drawing together bits and pieces and creating new scenarios.  This was great fun.

Three Muses - Music

Take a Word - Time

Some of the peculiar desert formations in the American West have always reminded me of the phrase "sands of time", in that they seem to speak of eons and eons ago.   Who knows what lies buried in the sands of time?

Diital Whisper = Fireworks

Fireworks always dredge up childhood memories, when we used to drive to a nearby town where we'd spread blankets on the grass and watch the magic of fireworks in the prairie sky.  While beautiful, fireworks in the city are never quite the same, though they still have their own touch of magic.  This is fireworks over my city, with a couple of filters and a superimposed silhouette.   Happy Independence Day everyone!
