I’m back. I’m rested but a little hysterical since I have had two more conditions diagnosed; one requires surgery, the other is a second incurable autoimmune condition for which the only treatment will be medication, which might or might not make a difference. You couldn’t make it up!

This is one of my very early abstracts created out of some flower and leaf photographs.

Sight Update: Monday’s appointment with the ophthalmologist was a disaster. Why? Because the department had no knowledge of it. I could not remember the name of the person who had rung me, which might have led to an explanation. Either way, I wasted £50 on taxis. Yes, the taxis on the Isle of Wight are very expensive.

I’m a great fan of Teagan Geneviene’s writing. Her serials are enchanting and by the time the latest chapter of the current serial wings its way into my inbox on a Saturday, I’m champing at the bit to see what’s going to happen!

Each week, her readers supply her with three things which she then weaves into her story. In this Saturday’s episode, Teagan used my suggestions —  a Silver Locket, Green Chartreuse and Salmon Koulibiac.

Originally posted on Teagan’s Books.

I’m afraid I gave in to the dramatic again.  I might as well tell you that there is another cliffhanger ahead.  But you’re forewarned, so try not to scream “Akkk!” about my theatrics when you get there.

The multi-talented Sarah Vernon at “Rogues & Vagabonds” sent the three things that fueled the steam locomotive to the Victorian Era for this chapter.  Sarah’s blogs are visual treats.  “Rogues & Vagabonds” is for anyone with a passion for theatre.  The feeling I get when I visit there puts me in mind of the era of this serial.

Here’s the steam locomotive.  Remember to watch for informative and fun links in text and images.  Now, let’s hurry onto the train!  There was a lot going on when we left the amethyst world last time.  All aboard!

27.  Silver Locket, Green Chartreuse, Salmon Koulibiac

Cornelis Drebbel wore a grave expression as Absinthe popped off to confront the Purple Fairy — also known as the one-eyed one horned flying purple people eater.  Our ape host and his housekeeper continued to murmur worriedly about the safety of the tiny Green Fairy.

I looked at the Dutchman.  His mouth twitched.  Then he smirked.  As I drew a breath to ask him what the devil he was thinking, Cornelis burst out laughing.  What preposterous behavior!  I was speechless, my question utterly forgotten.

Viola clutched a silver locket suspended from a chain around her neck.  A tear from her good eye trickled down her cheek.  She looked like she might swoon again.  Cal Hicks patted her shoulder, trying to comfort the violet…

This is another of my moody ocean pieces. The original photograph is one taken by Mr. FND of a small boat off the coast of west Crete. Adding the 2LO Haunting 14 texture (multiply mode in Photoshop) from 2 Lil’ Owls (bought via Design Cuts) created such a mysterious and dream-like feel to it that I wanted to do no more but display it for your delectation or otherwise!

I am way behind on uploading my images to the various galleries so this one is not yet for sale.

I’ve never been a great one for fantasy, unless you count a slight passion for time-travel and ghosts, so creating this dragon picture has come as quite a surprise to me, as it may do to you! As with The Grapes of Worth, it was work-in-progress at the end of November, a luscious grungy purple background just waiting for something perfect. That something perfect turned out to be a dragon. Who’d ‘ave thunk it.

Valley Rose

This weekend I have been creating products at my First Night Design store on Zazzle with the Valley Rose design and enjoying it immensely.  I hadn’t planned a post today but I was so taken with the look of the Messenger bag that I wanted to share it.  (I can hear my late mother saying, ‘Get you! What makes you think you’re so clever?’)

Albatross from The Graphics Fairy. French script from 2 Lil’ Owls.

The Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge [extract]

At length did cross an Albatross,
Thorough the fog it came;
As if it had been a Christian soul,
We hailed it in God’s name.
It ate the food it ne’er had eat,
And round and round it flew.
The ice did split with a thunder-fit;
The helmsman steered us through!
And a good south wind sprung up behind;
The Albatross did follow,
And every day, for food or play,
Came to the mariner’s hollo!

Take care and keep laughing!
