Sharing Dreams


This is my entry for the Three Muses challenge this week where the theme is couples or a pair (of friends) in this case. When I saw this image I was immediately taken back (more years than I want to count) to my Ballet days and remembered the special 'bond' that happens when young people are engaged in the same dreams and studies- both hoping for recognition. The similarities rather than the differences are the basis to the friendships and serve to support and help each other grow. This is a digital collage made with artist papers (Character Constructions), Dover images, digital tassels and multilayers of artistic filters.

  5. Lori, I hope you have retained this most beautiful picture in high definition because it would look stunning, framed and hung on a wall. I think this is your best work so far. Your story about your earlier life as a dancer is touching and wonderful. Superb artwork, wonderful writing. Bravo.
