Not a Cowboy in Sight!

ATC 276

Part of me thinks that I should apologise for the fact that not an awful lot of work went into this ATC.

And part of me thinks that if I added anything to this beautiful "Elder" image ... well I would ruin it!

He is so lush and I am so grateful to TMTA for giving me the opportunity to dust him down! He is my favouritist ever SA stamp!

So I have water coloured him a bit and added a vintage text border stamp to the bottom and a dash of gold Krylon around the edge!

The theme is Cowboys and Indians ... Why no cowboys? I hear you ask! Well I was always the indian ... sadly my brother was the only person in our house to own a sheriffs badge ... so he got to choose ... it was n't all bad ... I got to wear a poncho :0)

Linda, what a creative and beautiful ATC. I actually almost used an image of Sitting Bull myself. I don't think the effort is the important thing. I think the result is in art. This is lovely.

i agree with you - any add-ons would have ruined it...

Lovely image, silly to mess with something that is right already!!

LOL - I was always the Indian squaw!! I had 3 brothers... didn't stand a chance of ever being a cowboy and they used to lie to trees and leave me there!!

Heather Robinson said...

Some images just beg to stand alone and a true artist knows this....as you do!! Very evocative and "quiet" piece.
