The Three Muses Challenge - Victorian

I thought it might be a good idea to give Queen Victoria a zingy, zetti look but it didn't quite come off!!  Somehow I don't think she would approve.  She certainly wouldn't be amused!!
I Googled the Queen's face and painted in her body.  Sceptre also Googled.

Mixed Media Monday - Art

I was in the mood for doodling yesterday so what better than the great quote (above) from Pablo Picasso to use as an excuse.

Background and cat (greatly altered) Irene Alexeeva.  Image by me.

Art Creations Friday Challenge Sept 3

Thanks to the ladies at Art Creations Friday for the lovely image.  (Welcome back, we've missed you!)
I used the face from the ACF picture and blended it into a painting that I found on Wikimedia Commons (copyright free).  I finished off with a photo of flowers given to me by my friend Ann (Taluula) and I have blended this into the background.

The Three Muses Challenge - Back to Nature

In my part of the world, south-western Australia, seasons don't change dramatically. One merges into the next with very little fanfare.  However, September 1 marks the end of our mild winter and the start of spring. 
The image I have used is from Wikimedia Commons, copyright free.  The lovely background is a photo of lobelias and petunia by my friend Ann (Taluula).  Thanks, Ann!  Ephemera collected over the years, no credits available.
