The Three Muses Challenge - Surreal


It's me - Ozstuff - and my challenge this week is to create something with a surreal flavour. If I were asked to give a one-word definition of surreal, it would be "unexpected". In other words, anything goes.
For credits, see my blog (Apologies to JD Salinger for playing around (a little) with the title of his great book.

  2. OOPS! I got my wires crossed. I was so busy telling Marie how much I liked her surreal entry, I forgot to post mine! It's on my blog.

  30. Marie, This one completely blows me away! First of all, the title is based on one of my very favorite books, the mellow colors are gorgeous, and the juxtaposition of images is surprising and witty. I think even Holden would approve.

    Love,
    Alberta
