Isle of Golden Dreams ~ Paint Party Friday Week 29

Doing just that , dreaming up art work for Paint Part Friday, art work for my Halloween Blog Party this coming month of October and everything-else in between  during our home renovations.
I really wanted to be a part of this week's PAINT PARTY FRIDAY so I thought I share with you a gorgeous vintage painting I bought some time ago for my daughter Emma.


She has always dreamed of travelling abroad, especially to Hawaii, Australia and New Zealand and most recently Ireland. When I discovered this print I knew it was very old but after researching it on line I found out that it was done during the thirties ; a little older than I had thought.
If any of you have more information on this print I would love to hear about it.

So this painting is for all us Dreamers and Painters who dream of enchanting magical places and are truly inspired by the many artists of before and of now.

 "Isle of Golden Dreams" a beautiful painted treasure I uncovered one day at the Sally Ann.....Hope you like it......especially you Kristin ; )

P.S. Would luv to see you all at my Halloween Blog Party October / 2011.

Will be giving away a software program and an art piece done by me : )

Again Thanks to Eva and Kristin for hosting the weekly Paint Party Friday : ) Do visit all the participating artists....Always an Inspiration ; )

I love old prints like this, and really love giving them new happy homes.

Kristin Dudish said...

Oh yes - I definitely do like it! As a matter of fact, I wish I were sitting and dreaming on the beach right next to her! Ha! (Seeing her in the tropics is a nice break from the dreary rainy day that is actually happening outside my window!)

Thanks for sharing a little bit of paradise :)

"For in an instance I did think I’d seen a zillion stars ablaze" When I had discovered the magical grove of fossilized crystals I thought I had seen stars. This is what it looked like only on the ground amongst the moss. Thanks to Zsaj for helping me interpret the scene I had discovered a few summers past.

Needed a break from woodburning and painting so I tried this lovely little toy{ Polyvore Digital Workshop } and created this collage. This is a great way for creating a virtual one before attempting a real mixed media collage, although this is art in itself. Thanks Cindy from "My Romantic Home "http://www.romantichome.blogspot.com/, for introducing this great little gadget. I think I'm hooked!

* ~ Twilight at Sea ~

Another collage I created inspired by the poem "Twilight at Sea" I used dragonflies instead of birds...I luv them both but I adore how their gossamer wings catch the light. ~Annabelle

Twilight at Sea

The Twilight Hours like birds flew by,
As lightly and as free;
Ten thousand stars were in the sky,
Ten Thousand on the sea;
For every wave with dimpled face,
That leaped upon the air,
Had caught a star in its embrace,
And held it trembling there.
