Pure Imagination

(click to enlarge)
Here's my entry to Mr. Toast's Creative Tuesday
challenge to sketch or doodle the theme "Pure Imagination".
Of course there's the Big Dipper and Orion's Belt...but
sometimes I see other things, too! :)

  5. Argh, Betsy. I can't see the photo. nothing there. I did something weird to my internet settings so half the photos don;t show up any more and haven't as yet figured out how to fix it. Can you email it to me instead so I can see it, have it for montage and be able to comment. thanks! then i can add it to my blog side bar at that point along with others I need to add too. Thanks so much. I'm sure it looks grand. Can't wait to see it.

  20. What a wonderful image! It's an image that conjures up all sorts of thought and emotion.

    AND, it makes me think of Gene Wilder in the original Willy Wonka (my all time favorite) when he sings Pure Imagination .........

  22. I love looking up at the night sky, moon and stars and fashioning all kinds of images - lovely pic.

    Oh, and by the way, I was getting caught up on your blog and noticed all the coffee "mishaps" - perhaps you need less "joe" in your mo? Hee hee!

    Big hugs and kisses, Suzanne

  27. Lovely Betsy. For some reason it reminds me of a light we had when Alexander was a baby. It projected patterns onto the ceiling of stars and animals and planes and things and played a jungle tune. Is and I would every evening sit there and sat "goodnight" to every revolving animal as Xan slipped into sleep. Thanks for taking me back there.

  28. I love that postcard header, very unusual.

    I do a lot of sketching when on my walks, I'll have to put some up on my blog and see what people think.

    Looking at your following and the people who comment makes me think that your blog must be about the most popular on t'internet! What's it like being a Super Star?
