"Cemetery Angel" – 4x4

© All Rights Reserved
This week’s 4x4 Friday challenge was “Cemetery Angel.” I took a photograph of an angel in Willowbrook Cemetery in Westport CT today and used that here. I also used my GIMP stained glass capiz script to alter her appearance.

Cosmic Gravestone

I was looking for angels in cemeteries and found this cool cosmic gravestone in Willowbrook Cemetery in Westport CT. I also learned that very close by is Union Cemetery, one of the “most haunted” graveyards in the United States, in Easton CT. I plan to go there within the next week or so and take pictures.

"Snake Charmer" - ATC

© All Rights Reserved

This week’s Think Monday – Think ATC challenge was “Diamond Pattern.” I was originally going to use a harlequin diamond theme, but I decided to use this pattern instead, which reminds me of Celtic designs.

Stone Waterfall

We had a brief, heavy down pour today from thunderstorms that are passing through. This stone waterfall shows some of the runoff from it.

This week’s Sunday Postcard Art challenge was “India.” It took me three tries before I came up with something I liked. I used several images to create this, and several effects.

"Art Creations Friday - Challenge 80"

© All Rights Reserved

I created a collage type 4x6 postcard for the Art Creations Friday Jun 25, 2010 challenge (number 80). The challenge site provided the vintage girl image.

I’m also using this for the Mixed Media Monday challenge “Something Old” and the Theme Thursday challenge which was “collage and the color green.”

We had a possible tornado go through Bridgeport yesterday around 2:15pm, and there was a lot of damage. This isn’t a tornado region, so this was very unusual. Fortunately no one was killed.
