I've been Zettied

Never completely happened :-(
I was in the process of assembling and sketching a Zetti collage, as was last weeks challenge on
 http://thethreemuseschallenge.blogspot.com.  I chose Greta Garbo as my famous person.   I too am (sometimes) affectionately called "Greta Garbo" by my loved one's..................hmmmmm, wonder why??????
Anywhoooo~on the day I began my piece, my mom had to be rushed to the hospital and required immediate surgery to remove a badly infected, pain wrenching, stone filled gallbladder.  She is doing well, and given that fact........so am I.  Never a dull moment in my life, but who's complaining.......................................
To make a long story short, I did not get to complete my very first Zetti in time - instead I played the unexpected role of Florence Nightingale.
My Momma (for whom I'll do anything) insists...I make a great nurse!!!
I'd just rather not ;-) LOL

This is my Greta sketch

This is my Greta in the process of becoming zettified.
 I will finish it sooner or later.......

Kissing her pink elephant goodbye

This is a journal page I created months ago.  I can't remember exactly why I chose to sketch a likeness of Amy Winehouse; probably listening to her amazing voice and wanted to capture some semblance of my thoughts for and of  her at the time.
Such a tremendous talent, and an even bigger loss.  Sweet dreams beautiful girl.

Orient Express

I came across this wonderful site filled with tons of fun and inspiration.  It is a weekly challenge where you create a piece of art based upon the theme for that week.  Here is the link.......http://thethreemuseschallenge.blogspot.com/  Go visit and participate.
I couldn't resist, and so here is my offering.

Today's contemplation

This is how I spent my day!

Embrace your inner gypsy

I was not permitted to attend Woodstock in my early teens...and man did I try!!!  Strict (very strict) parents....not a bad thing.  I did although enjoy wearing plenty of hippie attire in those days. If the opportunity presented itself now,  for a creative, funky, camping in the woods, rockin event during these..... my baby boomer years,.......this is how I'd do it!!!!
