THREE MUSES


The theme is TURQUOISE across at the Three Muses this week and after finding some difficulty in getting started I eventually ended up with two pieces!


The first piece was me playing around with layers and blends and colours.   Mmmmmm .... not sure!

The second is inspired by a holiday I'm about to take with my family in the Lake District.   Plenty of fresh air, good food and long walks will be the order of the day.  :D

(Have to confess I've just got back from a week in Cornwall too ..... hee hee)

Credits to Finecrafted Designs, Holliewood Studios and Irene Alexeeva, whilst the boot was filched from the internet.

Thank you for looking.

My eyes are popping out at the rich beauty of color and image Ann! Those boots look like Doc Martens!

I can feel that your little jaunts into beautiful lanscapes filled in you with some very good energy! Freedom! Yes!!

I can hear you singing from here, Ann, love the first one with the vibrant rose!
Your 'Doc Martens' are very classy walking boots for the lakes, have a wonderful holiday, I'm 'in' the Lakes everyday when I visit lakelandcam.com!

love the first one because of it´s contrast of the rose to the turquoise (turquoise lilac, what a hoot!!)
the second one is my favorite though. because it reminds me of the seventies, when i spent my life in boots (did i even wear them at night, i wonder...)... and i had a school bag in exactly this color!! wish i had kept it on my attic and could reactivate it now. it was just a dream!

I was in awe of the beautiful layering and blending of the first, and entertained with the whimsy of the second. Apparently your "vacays" are inspiring. These are really great work!
