TAW...Altered Mona Lisa....

I think in the modern art world we have chosen to alter the
famous Mona Lisa painting more than anything else.
So this is the challenge given by Take a Word this week.

So here are a couple of my altered Monas.
I must admit she is one of my favourite pictures to alter too!

Looking forward to seeing your altered Monas on Take a Word.
Thank you for your comments.

Love and Hugs

Here are my pictures for the Three Muses Challenge.
I found the beautiful Flamenco dancer online, cut her
 out of the photograph and tried to see what she would look like
with two different ideas. I also put her on black!
So I've posted two. Which do you like best?

Thanks so much for your visit and comment.
I really appreciate it.

Thanks for looking.

Just a pretty for you....

I wouldn't mind waiting if a fabulous dress like this was at the end of it.
But after all, you couldn't wear it to wash up, could you?

Happy Sunday!

The Longest Day....

It was on the longest day...2009 that I lost my Mum.
5 years already, where has that time flown......?
This was always my favourite picture of her, taken when she 
was about 18. It always hung over my Nannie's piano.

Still miss you Mum......
God Bless......

Birthday Girl...

It's my birthday this weekend so I thought I'd give you a
 blast from the past!
I used then to baby sit for an American family staying in the village,
 Glenn was stationed nearby. They were a lovely family and I adored their baby! 
And he was a keen photographer.
So he took some pictures of me.
 Just look at that dark red lipstick!!
Happy weekend everyone!

Kanchan Mahon.
Anyway, they are my take on her style! Smile.
You are very welcome to visit my Flickr site as I have many more
pictures there. Just click on the 'rose in a box' at the side.

Thank you for your visit.

Dreams of Home...

With her jewels and finery, is she an old man's darling?
Or does she still dream of home....?

Enjoy the sunshine!

Take a Word has asked us to make shapes this week.
I have chosen circles like these bubbles.
No hard edges, no corners, no beginnings and no end.
I love them.
Can you feel the warmth of the sun on your face as you
look on this day dreaming girl?

Have a wonderful Monday.

Misty Blue..

A gorgeous day again!
Yesterday my darling granddaughter and family were down for the
weekend. So my hair cut and toenails painted and general pampering.
They also cut Fred's hair so he's neat and tidy.....
Rebecca is blooming with her pregnancy! About 6 weeks to go!

Above is a lovely ballerina I 'borrowed' from Patrick McDonald's paintings,
with his kind permission of course. She has been slightly altered
and placed in the frame.
Have a glorious Sunday!

June 6th.

 Who could forget that today is the 70th. Anniversary of D-Day.
Not many of our old heroes left. They have so many memories 
of friends who fell beside them.
We have one in our family.....  JACK COBON.

This painting of the lady was made by a dear friend,
Patrick McDonald and used with his kind permission.
I am pleased with the way it turned out.

Today is also the Birthday of an old friend.
Happy Birthday Martin x

Sorrow.....3 M challenge...

It almost brought tears to my eyes as I made this....
I remember it so clearly, the afternoon a friend and I sat chatting
with the TV on watching it live, as it was happening.
Like some ghastly nightmare........

So this is my entry for the Three Muses challenge of Sorrow this week.
I am sure looking at some of your work there will be more tears....

Alone and Together...

Feeling kinda romantic again......

I had a lovely day yesterday. My Sally and John took Colin and me
over to my son's, Stanley's  and Jenny's for lunch.
Barbecued meats, stuffed potatoes and loads of salad goodies.
A gorgeous blueberry and raspberry topped meringue!
Beautiful selection of cheeses
and I even had wine!
With all the talk and laughter between courses lunch took all afternoon!

This pic shows some of the fun!

Have a Happy Sunday
Love and Hugs
