The World I know is filled with beauty – with flowers, music, and all things colorful and from all of the pictures that I’ve seen taken from space, our blue planet is beautiful too. The darkness strips away all color, but if we close our eyes and imagine, we can see every possible color combination there is. That is the World I Know…..

My interpretation of Elizabeth Burton’s “Visions in the Dark”
Visions In The Dark
by Elizabeth Burton

I decided that what the flowers & vines needed was definition, so I took my water color markers and gave everything more definition. I wanted to maintain the integrity of the metallic water color pencils – I really like how they shine. So, voila! Here is my final work of The World I Know

I rediscovered my love of painting and drawing when our daughter went off to college. I try to find inspiration in everything, but it seems that I am drawn to the beauty of nature!

    Really beautiful Marsha! Looks like I checked back in, in the nick of time. I love the eye, It’s every bit as mesmerizing’s as Elizabeth’s original. The color is gorgeous, and your music notation, inspired. Congratulations on your work, and for qualifying you and Elizabeth for SoJie 13. :D
