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

Todays canvas is a design team for the wonderful team over at Left of Center Creative Challenges. A new challenge has just begun and will run for the next week. The theme for this week is four legged it gives you plenty of scope. As always you have the option of going LOC....just remember to check out the rules and the details...they are all on the LOC blog.
We are so lucky this week to have been sponsored by the oh so talented Nikki Burnette. I find it so hard to choose what image to work with. I finally decided on this beautiful image..mainly because of the foxes..I just love them. I painted the canvas with a mixture of paints and pens. I used my promarkers, my lyra watercolours and my H2Os. I love the effects that I can get by mixing the different types of paint and often mix it up. I hope that you will pop over to the Nikki Burnette site and take a look at all the fabulous designs that are available.

I haven't been on the blog this week as I haven't been so well..but I'm hoping that I'm on the other side of it now. I have kept working though..even though I couldn't get round much I can still sit and paint.I think that all the upset over Nosey really took it out of me...I still can't believe it happened and that the horrid man seems to think nothing of it.He hasn't been in touch so no doubt he thinks that it's all done with. I can't believe that he seems to think that it is ok to pay what he likes and not the full bill. My Nosey lost his life because of this mans stupidity and it all seems wrong to me.

Well the coffee is calling and then I will be back with another design team make. The cats are all out in the sunshine. No doubt they will be plying roundabouts around my head So until later...take care and happy crafting.
