TAKE A WORD


THREE CAN KEEP A SECRET, IF TWO OF THEM ARE DEAD .... or so wrote Abraham Lincoln!

We have VINTAGE as our word for inspiration at Take a Word this week and that gave me the chance to illustrate this brilliant quote!

Thank you for looking.

Great take of the briljant quote, Bev. Love the serious looking boy. It's true that secrets are difficult to keep;)

It seems that A. Lincoln wasn't used to trust a lot of people...
It's such a beautiful work dear Ann.
I love the light, the colors, the eyes, and the meanings of all of it.

Wow! This is absolutely smashing, Ann. I love the colour, the grunginess, the ghostly figures in the background. Superb in every way.

Your piece is filled with mystery and imagination, Ann, that boy has a lot of secrets to tell - some evil ones, I suspect! Brilliant piece!
Hope you are surviving the dreadful English weather!!

This gave me the shivers after I read the quote. The expression on the boy's face is perfect!
