Hello Everyone-hope your day is going well. We are back to the cold, wind and rain again so summer is on hold once more. I feel back to my old self again today and the cough and cold have almost gone.
It is strange how mood affects what I make. Yesterday I felt almost in a fever and when I chose my word for the Alpha challenge the word Flame jumped out at me from the dictionary page.
This time at The Craft Barn the letter is F but with restrictions so read them carefully before you start your page.
You will need sunglasses to look at this but I do think it was made while I was feverish and I enjoyed piling on the paint and doing the brash swirls. I held the page down with my wonderful peg that Sandra swapped with me--thank you Sandra I love it.
Making the page made me think of Vivaldi when he wrote the summer part of the Four Seasons. To him summer meant suffering and illness as he was asthmatic so the gentle sunny days and flowers that most of us think of were out of the question for him. Nigel Kennedy plays this piece so well on the violin and that may have been because he is also asthmatic and summer isn't a good time for him either.
Hope you enjoy summer if it ever arrives.
Love Chrissie xx
