Rabbit`s Hollow

"If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense.  Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would . You see?"

This is my entry for The Three Muses challenge this week "Alice in Wonderland".

This is my entry for The Three Muses challenge this week to create art in the style of a favorite or inspiring artist.  The artist I chose is a contemporary digital artist Catrin Welz-Stein. Her mixture of fantasy, femininity and symbol always appeal to me and I have tried to capture a bit of her style here. You can visit her blog (see my sidebar) and she is featured in the Nov/Dec/Jan "Artful Blogging" magazine.  Fun challenge!  Imagery from itKuPilli.

Sea Fleur

Had a lot of fun and learned some valuable skills from this collage.  Images are  from Dover clip-art CD`s  where I learned to use the selection tool and layer mask to remove an image from the background in PSE 13.  You Tube tutorials are so helpful! It takes a little time to crop images but you get the imagery that you want.  The fish in the background are from Finecrafted Designs and the seahorse was painted by me in Photoshop.This is for the "Sea Life" challenge at Digital Whisper.

Signs of Spring

This is my "Zetti" style collage for the TAW challenge this week.

Today is my 60th birthday!  A valley of reflection framed by mountains of gratitude.  I have lost friends already and though I feel and experience the definitive changes taking place in my life- at least I`m here to experience them- the good and the bad.  I feel blessed and more confident than ever despite the normal and annoying results of aging both physically and ....mentally.  Taking it one day at a time is no longer difficult( lol)  and thoughts any further tend to tire me out.  I don`t make resolutions but if there is one thing I want to focus on from here on out is to ENJOY each day. Less worry (last year was difficult) and less expectations- let it be what it will be. Less serious..... more joy!
