Mother and Child

When God thought of Mother
he must have laughed with satisfaction and framed it quickly....
so rich, so deep, so divine
so full of soul, power and beauty
was the conception.                  
                                  -----     Henry Ward Beecher

I used an very old image of Madonna and Child here and played with the erase and fresco filters in Photoshop Elements 13 until I got a more modern sketchy look.  Background from itkupilli.  This entry is for both TAW challenge and Digital Whisper challenge to celebrate "Mother`s Day".

Let`s Dance

On Holiday

All The World`s a Stage

"All the world`s a stage,
and all the men and women merely players.
They have their exits and their entrances,
and one man in his time plays many parts".

Words from the "Famous" bard William Shakespeare for the Three Muses challenge this week.  I had so much fun with the Postage Stamp people challenge I decided to make  another one for a series that I'm slowly working on.  All stamps from Google images.  Curtains from itkupilli.

Awakenings/ Beltane

The snow has melted and now grass is greening the meadows,
the leaves are greening the branches.
Earth`s cycle continues, the spring rush has passed
through the rivers
and now the nymphs join the dance
of their sweet sister Venus, the greatest of Graces,
whose beauty we see most nakedly now.

Happy Beltane!
