Words Of Wisdom



The theme at the Three Muses this week is "Words". In creating this piece I got to thinking about how important words are. How many times I wish that I had chosen my words more carefully.  I wish I could take some back. We are not all sages or wise owls but if only we could speak  from our hearts , less from our minds and with  more care.
 Imagery for this digital collage  is from Artchix, Christine Rennee, Tim Holtz art papers and Lorie Davison.

  4. Wise words indeed, Lori! I love mixing words and imagery in art. You've done it splendidly here. I love the rich colors as well. They say Fall to me and give me energy. Wonderful work!

  10. On the other hand, sometimes a hurt heart may tell things we wouldn't if our mind was in command... Never mind, words of wisdom is what we need. Clever and fun entry, Lori.

  12. Man. There have been lots of words I wish I could take back. Excellent collage! The owl is perfect for this challenge. After looking at your color scheme, I guess there's little I can do but accept fall is right around the corner.

  14. Ah, "with more care", therein lies the rub! The topic for my writing group this month is "A cup of restraint", and I'm reminded I need to practice it. I'm known for being blunt (to put it kindly)! Anyway, this is a beautiful piece, Lori. You always put so much thought into your beautiful art. I really appreciate that.

  20. Yes, Lori, it would be so nice if we could take back a few of our ill chosen words from our past but since we can't, we must use the word, "forgive" and forgive ourselves. Using the wise old owl to remind us to be wise in our words was clever for this page. Nice touch!

  21. fantastic artwork - and well, wise words anyway!

  22. It seems you have hit the nail on the head so to speak with what you have said, Lori. I think we all wish we could think a little harder sometimes before we say what we do. Your collage, which has even more impact when enlarged, is the perfect accompaniment to your words ...... and I love the autumn colours too.
