Take a Word - Tis the Season

We've had a series of gloomy rainy/snowy days when the only bit of color seems to be that of the beautiful red cardinal birds that stay throughout winter.  Apparently his little guy noticed that to be the case!

Three Muses - Angels

It is not known precisely where angels dwell — whether in the air, the void, or the planets. It has not been God's pleasure that we should be informed of their abode. ~Voltaire

Take a Word - Blue and White

I borrowed Magritte's pipe and hat for this jaunty jolly fellow.  I couldn't resist the play on words with Christmas Magritte-ings, but no one seemed to notice!   Also posted at Digital Whisper's Snowman challenge.

I love the lyrics of Garth Brooks' "River".  So much truth.  The image is from an 1888 painting superimposed over an antique map.

Not sure I'm smart enough to interpret this intricate timepiece found on Pinterest, superimposed onto a pocket watch.

Counting blessings seems to make us aware of the things that really matter, and bring us joy in its sweetest, simplest form.

A most unusual color combination!

It's interesting to work in non-color once in a while.  I resisted the urge to plant a red poppy somewhere!  The image is a Modigliani.

Suddenly there came a rapping ….  The ghostly house outline background is Poe's home. The image is one of the plethora of Poe images available on Google Images.  The quote, of course, is from "The Raven".

Amazing sights when peering through the knothole in a fence!

Take a Word - MailArt

Postal Fun.   I found this striking envelope whilst cybersurfing, and couldn't resist adding and embellishing a bit.

Take a Word - Orange and Black

Double double, toil and trouble; fire burn and cauldron bubble ....

Three Muses - BookArt

This is a real change of pace.  It's an experiment in mixed media altering of a book by folding center pages, and adding embellishments.   The beads are actually a thong-type bookmark looped over a center fold, the large embellishment is made from an old watch face and an old earring.  Metal leaf shapes at the bottom are from the easel on which it stands on my bookshelf.

Three Muses - White Space

I love creating pieces with white space.  It's always a challenge.  I don't know why they call it "white space" when it isn't necessarily white  -- just uncluttered!

Take a Word - Pink

How about some electric pink?
