Full disclosure: I'm not a Wednesday's child. I'm a Tuesday's child.
I don't feel particularly sad, but woeful Wednesday
seemed more interesting than my day.
And anyway, I'm not graceful either :)
When Kim set the challenge at Inspiration Avenue this week,
(Days of the Week), I really wanted to do a Wednesday's child.
Kim was sweet enough to bend the rules and allow us to do
another day of the week if we wanted to!
So here is my Wednesday's child!
I thought I would have time to do both, but who was I kidding?
I started with some blobs of purple and blue alcohol inks
and they turned into her dress. I cheated a bit and gave her a Madonna face.
Botticelli was a master of sad, beautiful faces.
The poem by Anne Bronte:
Oh, I am very weary,
Though tears no longer flow;
My eyes are tired of weeping,
My heart is sick of woe.
It seems to be raining a bit in the background,
and the owl is weeping too. But otherwise, it's rather
cheerful with the bright colors, and lollipop flowers.
Pop on over to Inspiration Avenue to see the entries.
If you have time before Sunday, join the challenge!
On what day of the week were you born?
