"Royal Wedding" - #11 Memory - 4x4

© All Rights Reserved
This week’s Theme Thursday challenge was “Vintage.” Most of the images are artwork by Walter Crane (1845-1915). I obtained them from old books on the Internet Archive. I love his style and when I found the wedding image with the name William as a groom dressed in red, I decided to make a tribute to today's royal wedding.

This is also my entry for Digital Whisper theme #11 Memory and Take A Word challenge #26 "Memories." Catherine and William will always have memories of this special day.

I have a master list for all of my Digital Whisper 100 theme entries here.

"Halo" - Postcard

© All Rights Reserved
This week’s Sunday Postcard Art challenge was “Song Title." The title of my piece is from the song "Halo" by one of my favorite groups, Depeche Mode. The dark lyrics inspired my piece, but I took a few artistic liberties as well. The words are included below:

You wear guilt
Like shackles on your feet
Like a halo in reverse
I can feel
The discomfort in your seat
And in your head it's worse

There's a pain
A famine in your heart
An aching to be free
Can't you see
All love's luxuries
Are here for you and me

And when our worlds
They fall apart
When the walls come tumbling in
Though we may deserve it
It will be worth it

Bring your chains
Your lips of tragedy
And fall into my arms

And when our worlds they fall apart
When the walls come tumbling in
Though we may deserve it
It will be worth it
