This is my entry for the Take A Word challenge this week where "wings" are the theme. An ethereal dream scape of transcendence by flight and fancy. Wings almost always conjure up a sense of  lightness, escape and spiritual ascendance to me- a lifting- up skyward motion. Imagery for this digital collage from Dover books, Rosey Posey, Holliewood and Beth Rimmer.

Hallowed Veil

This is my eerie take on the Three Muses "vintage" theme this week. A spectral visitation in the form of  a long past vintage beauty who for whatever reason appears on an old glass slide; beckoning the beholding viewer deeply into her trance....
Imagery from Vintage Photography blog, Rosey Posey, Dover and Christine Renee

All month long at  the Sunday Postcard Art  challenge Halloween is being celebrated and this week "Ravens" are the theme.  Couldn't pass this one up ....ravens are one of my favorite birds; dark and ominous as they are depicted in literature and myth yet highly intelligent with a complex social structure and curious by nature. I worked for quite a few years as a Raptor handler for a wildlife rehab and education center and worked with Ravens on the glove as well. They never ceased to amaze me!
