Through the window

Hi, folks. This is my contribution to The Three Muses challenge: WINDOWS AND/OR DOOR. I chose windows 'cause the idea of peering through a window has a hint of forbidden that seems to me, well, attractive.

Marilyn Forever

The awareness of her own beauty and the impact it caused in people has never been enough to make her feel loved, safe, adequate. Her beauty combined with a hint of fragility and melancholy have impressed me since my childhood. This is my contribution to this week challenge  at Collage Obsession: ORANGE.

Butterfly beauty

Hi! Who can resist butterflies? I can't, but this time I wanted to try something different to accomplish this week theme in Take a Word: BUTTERFLIES, of course. It ended up quite simple I guess, but butterflies don't need much to look good... :)

George, is that you?

I'm here, George! Don't be so full of yourself! Is that because I'm just an ectoplasm?

Hello! This time the challenge in The Three Muses is to do a steampunk makeover in someone you admire... As I'm just an ordinary  woman, I picked George again. I never have enough of him.. :)

Thanks to Finecrafted Designs and Mr. Whiskers.

Life is messy

Not enough to be a failed actress and have a dysfunctional family, she now had her own little devil,  but she was OK with it... “I stop fighting my inner demons. We're on the same side now.” ― Darynda Jones, Second Grave on the Left

Hi there! This is my MESSY entry for Take a Word. Unfortunately it didn't turn out as messy as I would like. I guess I'm more neat than I figured out :). “Real life is messy, inconsistent, and it's seldom when anything ever really gets resolved. It's taken me a long time to realize that.” ― Alan Moore, Watchmen

The cat and the moon

Hi pals! This is my interpretation for this week theme in Take a Word: MOON.
W. B. Yeats (1865-1939)
    HE cat went here and there
    And the moon spun round like a top,
    And the nearest kin of the moon,
    The creeping cat, looked up.
    Black Minnaloushe stared at the moon,
    For, wander and wail as he would,
    The pure cold light in the sky
    Troubled his animal blood.
    Minnaloushe runs in the grass
    Lifting his delicate feet.
    Do you dance, Minnaloushe, do you dance?
    When two close kindred meet,
    What better than call a dance?
    Maybe the moon may learn,
    Tired of that courtly fashion,
    A new dance turn.
    Minnaloushe creeps through the grass
    From moonlit place to place,
    The sacred moon overhead
    Has taken a new phase.
    Does Minnaloushe know that his pupils
    Will pass from change to change,
    And that from round to crescent,
    From crescent to round they range?
    Minnaloushe creeps through the grass
    Alone, important and wise,
    And lifts to the changing moon
    His changing eyes.

The cat and the spider are photos of mine. Moon and starry night were googled.

It's always Summer

In Brazil it's Summer all year (or almost). Summer suits beach, diving, carnival, ice cream, joy. So this is my interpretation of the theme WEATHER OR NOT that The Three Muses proposes this week.

Music: my medicine

Music is the medicine of the breaking heart.  ~Leigh Hunt

To me, music is not only medicine for broken hearts, but for lonely hearts, tired hearts, hopeless hearts. Moreover, it brings color to the joyful moments we share with those we love.
I did this piece by blending two of my own backgrounds and a sheet of music. It's my contribution to this week theme in Take a Word: MUSIC.
