Three Muses: Umbrella

Rush hour in a storm!
I have set up a new blog with a new challenge. Would you like to join in?
Go here to see what it is all about
All you have to do is go the the 'word page' and work through those words at your leisure. When you have made a piece of art, leave a comment for all to see.
I do hope that you will join in.

You know what it is like when the clock chimes at 2.30am and you have been awake for hours, you can't get back to sleep, sooo... you switch the computer on and you plan a new blog site!
Well ... that is what I did this morning...
This new blog is designed for those of you who are into 'challengers'...only this is not a challenge as we know it. I provide very obscure words that I have gleaned from the OXFORD ENGLISH DICTIONARY and you take whatever word you would like to use and "expand the possibilities"!
There is no time for you to develop on image, but when you have done so... add it to your blog and then write a comment on the EXPAND blog and we will then be able to see what 'possibles' you have created.
I will keep on adding obscure words, so make sure that you keep on checking to see what arises!
Here is the link....
Have fun, I do hope that you will join in. I look forward to seeing your "possibles"!

Take a Word: Masculine

View from the shed!!
Every blokes dream of having a shed with a car out the side that he will 'restore' one day!!!
Did you know that in Australia there now many "Men's Sheds" that local communities have for the blokes to get together to make "stuff"? Set up to assist those battling depression and loneliness. Go here to read more....

Three Muses: Circus

As part of this challenge please click here to watch this video

Isn't it rich?  
Are we a pair?  
Me here at last on the ground,  
You in mid-air.  
Send in the clowns.

Isn't it bliss? 
Don't you approve?  
One who keeps tearing around, 
One who can't move.  
Where are the clowns?  
Send in the clowns.

Just when I'd stopped  
Opening doors,  
Finally knowing  
The one that I wanted was yours, 
Making my entrance again  
With my usual flair, 
Sure of my lines, 
No one is there.

Don't you love farce?  
My fault, I fear.  
I thought that you'd want what I want -  
Sorry, my dear. 
But where are the clowns?  
There ought to be clowns 
Quick, send in the clowns.

What a surprise. 
Who could foresee 
I'd come to feel about you  
What you'd felt about me?  
Why only now when i see  
That you'd drifted away?  
What a surprise.  
What a cliché.

Isn't it rich? 
Isn't it queer?  
Losing my timing this late  
In my career?  
And where are the clowns?  
Quick, send in the clowns. 
Don't bother - they're here.

Take a Word: Coffee

What we need is a great big melting pot
Big enough enough enough to take
The world and all it's got
And keep it stirring for
A hundred years or more
And turn out coffee coloured people by the score
(click on image for larger view!)

Hi to you all!! After a long lay off with my art, I am now able to be back with you to create again. My life, as I knew it, turned on its axis...but I am much stronger now and ready to create! Thanks for waiting for me!!

An oldie... but one that I just love!!

This "oldie" is from the Digital Whisperers 100 challenge...hope you don't mind a repeat!!

Returning to the fold!!

It has been many months since I have been able to work with my digital art.
I am back and after this lay off time, I know that I am back stronger and more creative than ever!!
Much has happened, my whole life has shifted in its axis but... back I am and ready to 'rock and roll'!!
