The Secret's Secret ~ Works in Progress~ Stage 2 ~ for Paint Party Friday Week #2 Year 2


What lurks deep in the dark crevasses of my heart?
What lurks within the shadowy channels of my mind?
What lurks in a bottomless pit of my soul?
Only I would be the one to know these very thoughts, these well cloaked secrets of my mortal self!

And if I’d wish to have them known...upon a card I’d write my secret note
Within a book or in a box it travel distances that I wouldn’t know or even if it touched another stranger’s soul
And yet the secret still would have many secrets more!
From where it came or whose hand came upon its work...
Only the secret... really knows!

******************************   The Secret of being a  bore is to tell everything....Voltaire

And so with that thought in mind I shall only tell you one of my secrets ; )



Here she is........A 1920's spelter metal figural lamp of a washer gal. She is a part of a wip that I am presently working on .I am sure once I'm finished the two will be great together.





Although she isn't  a 
Francois Moreau I still adore her.



And here is my WIP of Moon Spirits  ~ Stage 2










I added the varying shades of blue, green, violet acrylics for the leaves and I hope it conveys that to the viewer. I also added a few shrubs at the bottom and worked some more on the tree trunk but so far I like it's progress. I will start adding the spirits soon ; ) For more art please pay a visit to the Paint Party Friday Participants 


Oh, and if you are kinda of curious like me , there is a clue in my poem to what I may be working on to complement my lamp.
It's always fun to go on a Treasure Hunt ; )

Until next time,
Annabelle : )
