Merry Muse

Hello creative people, I hope all is well.   It's VERY dreary here but milder than normal due to heavy cloud cover.    I'm starting to feel like a sponge as we have not seen the sun in quite a while.    Normally January brings in cold but sunny days.

I am keeping up with Lifebook 2017 lessons, but today I'm showing you a mixed media piece that I did between the weekly lessons.   This is very much inspired by Tamara Laporte of Williowing Art - the Merry Muse course, it's the same layout but my girl & dove look different.  





Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend,
Shirley

Shirley, your bird lady is gorgeous, and the colours are wonderful, too. Glad you are so enjoying your course. We have sunny but very cold weather, but I have been at home anyway, looking after my ribs. Have a great weekend, hugs, Valerie

Another very pretty lady Shirley and I love her bright red hair cascading down her back and that cute little bird with the crown and not sure but it looks like a lute she is holding, but altogether a pretty creation with beautiful colours. It has been a bit colder hee in the south west with the last few nights quite frosty but it has been quite bright overall. Unfortunately we tend to get quite a lot of grey skies which I hate, cold, crisp and bright is much nicer. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. x

Really lovely Shirley. Such a gentle face. I love the way the centre of her face glows, you have captured that perfectly. I think we have your sunshine. Cold frosty days here for about a week, it is lovely, but very chilly for us. Hope your days brighten up soon. Happy Sunday. Elaine xxx

Such a beautiful page Shirley, your lady has such a lovely look on her face. We're getting ready to go to Vancouver and Whistler where we're told it's colder that normal at the moment, don't know how we brits are going to cope. Hope your having a great weekend.

Another beauty, Shirley! Love the little words along the top of the dove & the music in the background! Hope you soon get some sun--we did yesterday & Fritz was in heaven taking multiple sunbaths on the deck, even though he had to wear his jacket since it wasn't very warm!

Sweet Lady with lovely face and a great image. I like the nice bird and the Lyra (music instrument) and the colors too.
