Windows to the Words

Most of you know jovial James Parker with his hilarious comments and really wonderful works of art.  He started a new challenge called Windows to the Words -Art where each artist picks a choice of prose and paints or draws something based on it's content.  This 5x7 acrylic on canvasboard was based on the Moody Blue's song, "Lovely to see you."

Check out his and other entries to his challenge!

SHeila, first I love paintings of a woman with a bird for some reason. In this case, I enjoy the mystery of how you cropped her. Your mind is such a natural with composition it's excellent! I give this piece a 10!

Sheila...your little bluebird of happiness popped out of my computer while I was downloading, gobbled up a Twinkie, and winged his way over to the Windows to the Words Art page. I love it.

Beautiful Sheila! This goes wonderfully with the lyrics. The woman and bird are connected by the color blue, which is also the color of 5th chakra that controls "communication."

Nice painting Sheila. The bird and the woman are united by the blue color.

Lovely little painting. There seems to be a communication going on here that needs to be heard.

Sheila, I nominated you for a 'love your blog award' which I think is very much deserved.
