Three Muses Challenge - Artist Affirmation

I was asked to choose the theme and create an example of art for this week's challenge at The Three Muses. I chose "artist affirmations."


The background picture I used is a photo I took at Greenfield Village, a wonderful place in Dearborn, Michigan where the homes of famous people have been moved to and set up for people to tour. The machine above was in Thomas Edison's machine shop. I thought it would be wonderful to use in a steampunk piece.

  2. This is a wonderful steampunk flavoured piece of art, Bill. The textures and colours are amazing. How wonder to be able to include your photo of Thomas Edison's machine shop. I wonder if he would have appreciated calling it steampunk!! Thankyou for hosting the challenge this week and for sharing this superb picture.

  4. A marvelous example, Bill. I think Edison would have loved your steampunkery! Thanks for hosting the challenge this week. It was an inspired one, and certainly brought out some stunning pieces of art from our talented participants! (I'm envying your thunderstorm. We're in a LONG dry spell here, and wishing for rain!)

  10. The colours, somehow making me think of rusty metal, and the steampunk flavour make this a fantastic piece. Bill, my friend, you rock!
