In The Style Of Paulina Cassidy - Floating Over Wonderland

Jayne aka PeppaPig across at Digital Art Quirks, challenged us to create a piece in the style of Paulina Cassidy, and this is what I came up with.

If you'd like to join in, Peppa hosts the Altered Works of Art challenge each Sunday at Digital Art Quirks and I'm sure she'd love to see you there.

Three Muses Challenge 33 - Water

It's Bev's turn this week to host the Three Muses challenge and she has chosen the theme of WATER.

There is no doubt I could have taken many directions in using WATER in my piece, but Marcel Marceau wanted to get in on the act, and so my water turned into rain and poor old Marcel was left on the outside looking in. Mmmmmm.

Great challenge Bev.

Oooops, there goes Mr Marcel again! Looks like he found some more water.

Three Muses Challenge 32 - Angels

This week Marie is our host at the Three Muses and she has chosen the theme of Angels.

I seem to be drawn to these pale, sparse landscapes at the moment and when I found this crouching angel on the internet the whole thing just came together.

Credit to CAJ Designs for everything excluding the angel.

Thanks Marie for a great challenge.

Ooooh and here is another one and the angels this time were filched from Botticelli's Birth of Venus (Dover free to use). Other elements are courtesy of Efie.

Thanks for looking.

Happy New Year - 2010

When I was about to retire my work colleagues asked me what I was going to do with all my time.

Mmmmmm. I couldn't believe they thought I might get bored.

They urged me to make sure I kept active both in mind and body.

Mmmmm. What did they mean, did they think I would leave work and enter my dotage?

They worried for me and kept asking me how I would fill my time.

Well, I shall do what ever takes my fancy I replied, make art, become a digital artist, and create a blog for starters.

They were worried for me. I could tell.

Then I left work and entered the LAND OF BLOG and made lots of art and found heaps and heaps of new cyber friends and my life was changed forever.

This is my way of saying thank you for creating blogs where I can come and visit, also for your friendship and for your heartwarming comments on my blog too.

May I wish you the happiest, healthiest, most creative and artfilled new year ever.
