This week's theme for the challenge at
Inspiration Avenue is "I've Got the Blues".
The words I associate with 'blue', are
cool, moody, sadness, even depression.
I do love all colors, but can you tell
blue is not my most favorite?
Blue could just as easily connote
refreshment, calm, peace, water and sky.
Here is my entry for the challenge.
I'm not sure what is going through the lady's mind.
She could just be very sad, or perhaps
contemplating some treachery!
The only thing we know for sure ~
she has drifted off somewhere else in her mind!
Check out the entries for the week at Inspiration Avenue.
How does everyone interpret the blues?
This lady definitely has a lot on her mind and it seems her pen is poised to speak her mind. Lovely work...ReplyDelete
I vote for treachery . . . and revenge is sweet. ;-)ReplyDelete
Maggie I love this piece, not only because blue is my favorite color, but because I love the layering affect. And the letter. Some of my favorite elements for collages and art journaling. Gorgeous!
oh maggie ... this piece is so beautiful ... nostalgic, aching and romantic ... i'm in love ...ReplyDelete
Wonderful art Maggie.ReplyDelete
Fantastic digital work.
This is a very pretty composition. I love how you offset the blues with some hopeful pink.ReplyDelete
Beautiful image Maggie, very serene and almost melancholy.ReplyDelete
I love the feel of melancholy you created with this, and the rose, for me, gives it a sense of hope.... You REALLY need to start selling your collages- I know *I* would buy one!ReplyDelete
Yes, I feel her melancholy...and her trepidation...and even her hope. I think she has a letter from her soilder, stationed across the sea. This is perfect...you should call it 'Memorial Day'ReplyDelete
Ah, she looks as though she is conjuring up something, looking very mischievious, beautiful collage Maggie! I love blue, I just lost track of time and missed the deadline this week!! Maybe next week I will be more organised!!ReplyDelete
Thank you all!! Your comments mean so much!ReplyDelete
Blue is not my favorite color either. However when I was in the first grade it was my favorite. Funny how our taste changes as we grow up.ReplyDelete
Your entry is beautiful. I love the snowy tree in the background.
I'm playing bloggie catch up... I'm so behind.
Have a great week.
I love what you created for last week's challenge Maggie and totally relate to your feelings about blue. Although it's never been one of my favorite colors there are so many shades of it that make me happy, like robin's egg blue, ahhh.ReplyDelete
I hope you're doing great!
