"White Space" – Postcard

© All Rights Reserved
(Click on image to enlarge)

This week’s Three Muses challenge was "White Space."

As a result of the "Tiny Angel" theme on other challenge sites this week, my muse has gone in a somber direction, which crept into this piece. My understanding of "White Space" is from the description posted on Johanna's blog, which said, "The term "white space" is used to define art that has a single focus and lots of uncluttered space." " I'm not sure if my piece conforms to that 100% though.

I created this using GIMP 2.8.8.

The vintage images are from a DuckDuckGo search.

The font is DK Northumbria

The words are from a grave:

Behold and see as you pass by,
As you are now so once was I,
As I am now you soon must be,
Prepare to die and follow me

I don't care if it conforms it is gorgeous and the poem is wonderful and touching.

Have a very Happy Holiday Season and a wonderful New Year.

i love the heron, proud as he is, but he will also have to respect this memento mori...

Your piece is fantastic. I have come across that quote before from a gravestone. A little sombre but true! Lovely white space piece! xx

This is one of my most favourite quotes, Anne, and you have illustrated it and the white space theme beautifully.

PS .. I'm impressed that you have mastered GIMP!
