- NCE I loved a spider
- When I was born a fly,
- A velvet-footed spider
- With a gown of rainbow-dye.
- She ate my wings and gloated.
- She bound me with a hair.
- She drove me to her parlor
- Above her winding stair.
- To educate young spiders
- She took me all apart.
- My ghost came back to haunt her.
- I saw her eat my heart.
The Smiling Spider 1891 by Odilon Redon
Can I Keep you .......until later?

TRAMPS IN THE WOODS
"SHE MUST SPEAK TO YOUR HEART.
THE WOODS AND FIELDS MUST MELT INTO YOUR MIND,
DISSOLVED BY YOUR LOVE FOR THEM."
~ JOHN BURROUGHS
Finally back, but behind on supper , that's okay, just needs warming and M is taking care of the ( CORNISH PASTIES I made yesterday ; )
I'm so sorry for the delay in posting the art work but it's been a busy hospital week for me…three times in. Okay, enough of that and to something very special or more accurately to more special things O,O
This week I have three art works to share with you , two of mine and one of my daughter's, she is my guest artist this week : ) ......and whenever she decides to create art i will happily show case it.
#1 Old Book Treasure ~ Annabelle (Anna)
#2 Canadian Copper Penny Stamps ~ Pennies for your Thoughts ~ M (Emma )
#3 Blue Bird Mixed Media Painting ~ Annabelle (Anna)
NOTE...TO APPRECIATE THE DETAIL IN EACH PHOTOGRAPH JUST CLICK TO SEE THEM IN THE ORIGINAL LARGER FORMAT....oh and here is another tango, enjoy while reading this post
P.S. WHEN EVER I HEAR THIS MUSICAL PIECE I CAN'T HELP BUT THINK OF THE SCENE IN " SOME LIKE IT HOT " WHERE JACK LEMMON ( DAPHNE) IS DANCING WITH JOE E. BROWN ( OSGOOD FIELDING THE III ) SUCH A BELLY LAUGH....LOVE THE CLASSICS!!!
Talk about wishing I listened more attentively to my high school chemistry teacher.
Anyway, I had done something similar before about some ten years ago so I did have an inkly of an idea how to approach the work and of course hubby gave me the ultimate info I needed to make it work out….Thanks dear, much appreciated .
Well , it worked and I am still working on the ratio of water/crystals/& time.
I have to say this precious little book is turning into one of my very favourite art works I've done to date aside from painting.But this in a way is painting with water , colour and salt .
Once I am happy with the size of crystal formations , my next step will be to research on how to harness this beauty for a duration of time besides locking it into a photograph.
As you can see I am in need of some guidance in taking an exquisite photograph ~ a true likeness of this beauty : )
Next week I will have a summery of my experiment.
EVERY TIME I'M PLEASANTLY SURPRISED BY TWINKLING STARS
ANOTHER TWINKLING STAR , THIS TIME INSIDE THE TURNED PAGE ON THE RIGHT.
I REALLY LIKE HOW THE PAGES TURNED OUT AT THE BOTTOM OF THE BOOK, A CARAMEL COLOUR. NOTICE THE CANADIAN PENNIES ~ ENLARGE THE IMAGE TO SEE WHAT M WROTE ON THEM.
I THINK SHE IS MAKING THEM INTO BOOK MARKS AND PENDANTS ,THEY WILL SOON BE POSTED ON MY ETSY SHOP SITE
THE FOLDS OF THE PAGES WERE NOT AS DIFFICULT TO CREATE AS I FIRST THOUGHT, AFTER ALL IT IS SUBMERSED IN WATER.
OH , HOW I LOVE THEE.......
lOVE IN THE EARTH AND
IN THE WOODS AND FIELDS... NATURE
FOLLOWS (ME) EVERYWHERE
AND THEN M SURPRISED ME WITH ONE OF HER NEW ART CREATIONS....PENNIES FOR YOUR THOUGHTS......HEAVILY INSPIRED BY " DOCTOR WHO "
M HAS TURNED THESE CANADIAN COPPER PENNIES INTO WHIMSICAL LITTLE KEEPERS OF ONE'S INNER THOUGHTS.
SHE METAL PUNCHES THE WORD INTO THE COPPER PENNY, AND THEN PAINTS THE WORDS WITH SHARPIE PERMANENT MARKER.
THEY ARE JUST SO DARN CUTE, FUN AND LUCKY PIECES OF TIME. I'LL HAVE TO THINK OF ONE SHE CAN DO FOR ME O,O
A PENNY FOR YOUR THOUGHTS, OR TWO OR THREE ; )
A PENNY SAVED ULTIMATELY MAKES A GOOD KEEPER OF THOUGHTS
WE'RE ALL STORIES IN THE END
BE BACK IN THE FUTURE
LIKE A NAME IN A FAIRYTALE , TIME
BLUE BIRDS MIXED MEDIA PIECE I'M PRESENTLY WORKING ON.
I FOUND THIS SKETCH AT A NEARBY THRIFT STORE AND I THOUGHT IT WOULD WORK PERFECTLY IN DOING A MIXED MEDIA PIECE WORKING FROM TRACY LYN HUSKAMP'S BOOK "NATURE INSPIRED". I PAINTED THE BIRDS A LIGHT BLUE , SOME OF THE LEAVES AND ADDED OLD WEDDING LACE , MAYBE A LITTLE BACKWARDS IN THE STEPS BUT IT ISN'T REALLY POSING ANY PROBLEMS AS YET : )

Sweet Hypnotic Sleep:
Dreams are whispers of the soul
who together sleep
Dreams are the windows to other worlds , delicious, mysterious, intoxicating, hypnotic, mesmerizing, intriquing worlds or worlds you rather hoped you never had entered.
Even they Dream...and if caught in a bad dream they have each other for a comforter.
A good idea to have one of these near your bed.
