Take a Word "Time"

As many of you will have noticed, there is a new challenge blog run by the clever ladies of the Three Muses.
Every week they will give us a challenge to create something with a word prompt. This week is it is "Time"

Time is something I never seem to have enough of (like many people I'm guessing). I decided to create a tribute to the Goddess of Time, asking her to grant me more. The piece did not work out at all how I had wanted it, but at least I had fun painting...

I love it when you venture into painting, Astrid. Heaven knows we all need The Goddess of Time to be benevolent. Yours looks as if she might be! Well done!

Femmy said...

just fantastic Astrid!!

Grannie Annie said...

I think it's a lovely painting Astrid...but of course if you are like me...never satified...the picture on my paper is never as good as the one in my head...I digress...this is a wonderful representation of that ever demanding Goddess of Time...well done!

Oh No!! Terri pinched MY word (exquisite) and I am left floundering for another one to express my reaction to your most beautiful picture. The textural hair alone made me gasp in wonder!! Astrid, I can't tell you how wonderful it is to have you as a contributor to this little challenge. Thanks so much for joining in. Wow.

Astrid, I love the idea of a Goddess of Time, couldn't we all do with one! I love your layering and painting and think she is quite a majestic Goddess. Bravo.

Oh, by the way, I saw the grumpy Mona on Grannie Annie's blog and was so taken with it I asked if I might use it and she said yes.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
