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

Today's creation is a design team make for the wonderful team over at Left of Center Creative Challenges. A new challenge is just about to begin and will run for the next week. The theme for this week is it's the perfect excuse to let your imaginations fly.

We are so lucky this week to have been sponsored by the fabulous team over at A Day for Daisies. I just adore the art work that is has such a whimsical edge to it. To go with our theme, I chose to work with this wonderful image of the young witch on the fence. When I saw her, I wanted to place her looking down into a valley...I couldn't find an image that fitted what I wanted her to be looking I painted my own. I used my Lyra watercolour crayons to paint the valley. I used the same crayons to colour the young witch and her cats as well. I just adore this image of the young girl and her cats..there is something so timeless about it. It could be that she is looking from her world into ours.

The sun is shining and I have shut all the cats out, so that I can get along with my crafting in peace. Saying that Pinky has managed to get in and is lapping me as I Yesterday I bought myself a seat to use in the shower..Sparkle put it together for me and then I placed it in the shower area. It's legs hadn't even had time to settle and Nosey was there. I went into the bathroom today and both Nosey and Gannie were asleep on it. I wouldn't mind but they do have their own space in there...I have put a cat bed on top of a storage until..but obviously new is

Well the coffee is calling and Sparkle is I will be spoilt by having my coffee made for me. I shall be back later with another design team until then..take care and happy crafting.
