Water, water everywhere…

The Three Muses challenge this week – Bev chose Water as her theme. I went digital last night, having spent most of the afternoon curled up on the sofa, feeling distinctly sorry for myself! It’s just another head cold, nothing more and I feel marginally better today (Day 3), so I’m off to market for the day, provided my boss gets there! They had 4″ or 5″ of snow where he lives yesterday…

The images and the verse are googled. The background is a textured watercolour on mattboard – in those colours!! Have a good day all. I’m just happy that I can get in to work, albeit slowly and carefully. Catch you all this evening!

EDITED: Hah! I was just about to walk out the door when I got the phonecall saying, “STOP! Don’t go in!” Apparently, the boss has no stock. I hadn’t thought of that – he’s a farmer, isn’t he? Ground’s frozen, plus it snowed up there again yesterday, so he hasn’t been able to dig any veg up… and he hasn’t had a delivery since Monday. I did ask him to phone earlier next time, so I could go back to bed!!

    Rosie, the colours are stunning and the layering and blending of your images is jaw droppingly brilliant and most definitely ‘frameworthy’. Take a very low bow, you deserve it.

  12. I love that poem and you have illustrated it so beautifully. The images you have chosen are perfect. I also enjoyed hearing about your life in a very cold winter, holed up in your home with only a cold for company! It is a vision so foreign to me and I enjoy being cooled down in heatwave conditions by vicariously sharing the cold weather with you.
