"To Dream"

"To Dream"
6"x6" Mixed Media Collage
(Click on a butterfly to enlarge.)


Whenever I can meet the themes or requirements of two challenges simultaneously, it's a serendipitous thing and a wonderful feeling. This week I've used many of the Crowabout elements to satisfy the "bird" theme from one of my very favorite challenge sites, "The Three Muses".

"One World One Heart"
Reminder

It's so nice to see you back in the challenges, Terri. You have to know you have a legion of fans who are hanging out just waiting for Ms T. Kahrs to post her latest work of art. This one is superb. Your painting technique is exquisite. No other word for it. I love the hidden bird which I first thought was the body of the moon. This is a seriously superb collage. Standing ovation from me.

Oh she is dreaming of the sea, just like me.
Dreaming is what I do must of the day, since our weather here is so lousy (hehe).
