NOTE TO OUR ARTISTS:

It is with immense sadness Ann and I report that our very dear friend, Marie Markham, passed away this morning after a year-long battle with illness following her surgery a year ago. Marie and I met on a pen pal site in 1999 and have communicated almost daily since then. She was the driving force in establishing our three digital art challenge blogs--Take a Word , Three Muses, and Digitalmania. Our friend, Ann Baker from the UK, joined us and we three friends who have never met managed the three blogs for over ten years. Ann and I have continued to manage them during Marie's illness. We have sorely missed her talent and wit. We know you join us in extending our deepest sympathy to Marie's family in Perth.

The Three Muses Challenge - Take a song, any song.

This week’s challenge is to take a song, any song, to inspire you in your artwork.
I have chosen “Eleanor Rigby” which is a touching study of loneliness.

“Eleanor Rigby picks up the rice where a wedding has been.
Lives in a dream
Waits at the window, wearing the face she keeps in a jar by the door.
Who is it for?”

A slightly sombre subject but I am sure there will be an avalanche of beautiful, cheerful takes on this theme to make up for it!!

We can’t wait to see what our wonderful artists have in store for us.

  24. Is the challenge a song, or buttons and bows? If it's the former, I'm using the ABC" song as my inspiration; if it's the latter, mine also has buttons:
