Inspiration Avenue Weekly Challenge
The theme this week was "Imagine/Imagination", conjuring up some very intriguing possibilities. But it was a lot harder than I thought it would be, with nobody giving me a keyword, as it were. I have no idea what this is about, except that the cat is checking out the robin! And I am always attracted to fairies and other wee magical creatures.
The center image is from an 1896 painting by Frederick Howard Michael, called "Titania", of a fairy sleeping on her wings with some devilish little fairies sneaking up on her. The cat is, of course, my "devil kitty". The robin is from an 1858 painting by John Anster Fitzgerald titled "Robin Defending His Nest". The gnomes/elves are from vintage postcards.
I wanted to make this an actual collage rather than a digital collage, and I had planned on adding some embellishments. But alas, my printer is almost out of ink. I had plenty of time to run to Staples to replenish it, but as luck would have it the entire region is being hit with freezing rain this morning! Cars that have ventured out are piling up on top of each other! When you look outside, it just appears to be a rainy day. But the roads are covered with a sheet of ice, so I am staying put for now.
