Three Muses Challenge 25 - Keys

This week Bev has challenged us to use a KEY in our artistic endeavours. I thought I would try a little steam punk for this theme, and where else to place the key, but the balloon!

Thanks for another inspired challenge Bev.

Yes, the Blog has been behaving in mysterious ways today but seems to be back to normal.
Fantastic take on the challenge, Ann. I love your surreal take which is also whimsical and thought provoking (I am worried about what is going to happen when the key is inserted in the balloon!!). Great work.

What surreal fun, Ann! I love the guy in the top hat, and the keys in the balloon are a great touch. Kudos to you!

So now we have a clockwork balloon to go with my clockwork men - I wonder what happens when you wind it up?! Fascinating art as always from you Ann - I love how it makes you wonder.

Oh, how I WISH I had half your talent for creating surreal art, Ann. I've always loved images of hot air balloons,but you've made them even moreappealing with the wind-up key. Wonderful collage!

Oh so clever! Love just the thought of a key somehow being involved in the flying of a balloon. The gentleman looks quite pleased with the whole affair!

Judy said...

You do surreal so well, Ann, waiting to see what happens when the key turns! Outstanding art again!
