LOST IN THE STARS

The title of this collage is taken from a wonderful song by Maxwell Anderson (1888-1959). You can hear this song, sung by Judy Garland, here:

The mountains & lake are a found, hand-colored photograph as is the photo of the lady and her dog. My trusty astronomy book provided the sky full of constellations.

THEME of the week: Space

This week´s theme is pretty wide ;-)
Have fun!

madonna with the green dreadlocks


I think this one is quite silly—if not godawful. But when I read the mail art call with the Madonna theme for that Bosch place, they talked about displaying Madonnas that are contemporary. I figure green hair in dreads is pretty contemporary. This Madonna's hair was already twisted up and dangling. All I did was to color it green.

The Madonna and Child is a detail from a rather peculiar Renaissance painting—Giorgione's "The Tempest" (1506-1508). (The Wiki essay you get to from that link is short and fascinating: I recommend it.)
