An Auspicious Day

Signs in the heavens and other portents of good fortune were seen on the occasion of Kublai's birth, and there was great rejoicing.

i'm glad you tagged w/ "antique photo" as I was puzzling over what I was seeing...sometimes things look as though they would be 3D in person.

I love the colours in this picture. We have had two days of sunshine and the gardens are promising displays like these soon. Hope all is well and you are feeling rested xxJ

I see surreal and ironic humour. Going to shoot me, aren't you?

i enjoy your creative expression, this is wonderful.

I love the "pen and inkness" of this - it gives it a wonderful sense of movement.

Nicholas-

I can upload this to redbubble as a card and print, which would give you a couple of options. I'm doing my uploading there in a certain order, so I would say if you check back Wednesday or Thursday I can have it up there - If you want to go for the card option, wait a couple of weeks and I will have more of the series there.

Great reference to Kublai. Given what he started culturally, yes.

Intriguing image Susan!

Ooh, really intriguing! I was getting Elizabeth I too.

ArtSparker said...

Titus- Yes, I see it, there is a suggestion of an Elizabethan collar and red hair.

Those little boots are meant for walking - through the flowers.

Joe Beale said...

This is very cool... and I think your idea of a "break" from blogging is different from mine! Maybe see you in London...? :-)

ArtSparker said...

Joe- absolutely, and if you have a favorite gallery, we could meet there.

This made me smile! Pure joy and sunshine!

Is it just me? I see an egg, a beautiful egg. And all the promises an egg carries within.
Children love eggs!
