Coming down out of the freezing sky with its depths of light, like an angel, or a Buddha with wings, it was beautiful, and accurate, striking the snow and whatever was there with a force that left the imprint of the tips of its wings — five feet apart — and the grabbing thrust of its feet, and the indentation of what had been running through the white valleys of the snow — and then it rose, gracefully, and flew back to the frozen marshes to lurk there, like a little lighthouse, in the blue shadows — so I thought: maybe death isn’t darkness, after all, but so much light wrapping itself around us — as soft as feathers — that we are instantly weary of looking, and looking, and shut our eyes, not without amazement, and let ourselves be carried, as through the translucence of mica, to the river that is without the least dapple or shadow, that is nothing but light — scalding, aortal light — in which we are washed and washed out of our bones.

Left of Center....New Challenge..Ink it Up

Todays creation is a design team make for the fabulous Left of Center Challenges. This weeks challenge is to Ink it Up and is sponsored by the wonderful SLS Lines. I had such great fun creating this canvas and have to add that the cats helped and actually inspired the way that I went.

For the canvas I began by painting it black using my acrylics. I coloured the cats with my promarkers and as there were 3 of them I thought that it would be fun to use the old see no evil,speak no evil.hear no evil saying. I had every intention of doing some barbed wire in the background..laughing to myself of my cats needing barbed wire and then the actual cats arrived causing They ran in the window and straight over the canvas and wet paint, leaving paw prints. Well I thought that it was meant to I let it dry and then added the cats. I made the words no evil using some alphabets from my stash and then added some silver frantage to the background to add a little sparkle.And as a little extra..I added the word really underneath.
I hope that you will pop over to the Left of Center Challenge Blog and take a look at all the other wonderful creations.And why not join in the fun. It is pouring with rain here in the mountains I am surrounded by cats..they are sat round my arm chair, so no doubt they will be again helping me to
Well the coffee is calling and I will be back later on with another design team make. I hope that you all have a good until later..take care and happy crafting.
