Three Muses Challenge - Music

Life is always interesting. I didn't create much on the computer during December, because I had a virus that lasted a month. It still feels like it hasn't quite left my chest. At the end of December, we had 6" of snow. I hoped that would be it. I never claimed to like winter. Last Sunday, winter let us know it was just beginning by dumping 10.5" of snow on us. It took me 3 attempts to get us shoveled out. I was determined I was going to do something for the Three Muses Challenge this week, and since the temperature dropped to the lowest we had in years, it was the perfect time. (Monday night the temperature was 14 below zero with the wind chill being 35 below zero. Unbelievable!) I ended up creating two digital collages for the Three Muses Challenge. However, the weather knocked our cable out. We have not had TV or the Internet for almost 48 hours! All that means I am very late in posting for the challenge. Oh well. At least I haven't dropped dead like it felt I was going to. Actually, I think our friend June in England had the bug first. I don't know how it managed to cross the Atlantic, but evidently it was a very strong bug!



By the way, I can't claim responsibility for anything in the collages. I have only survived the past month by drinking hot toddies - whiskey, lemon, honey and hot water. I could be in a drunken stupor for all I know.

  1. Bill, I am so glad you are feeling better! And you know I sympathize with you on the ridiculous snow and cold issue!!! What is up with all that, huh? Nonetheless, I'm so glad to see you are back to your collaging and I really love both of your collages for the challenge this week! Were you listening to music when you made them? Somehow I think I can hear something like a symphony when I see them, but perhaps one that plays Beatles or Led Zepplin songs!
    Great job!

  6. Man! You make great art in a drunken stupor, Bill! These are stunning! Sorry to hear of the cold, here -35 is normal, but that doesn't mean it's fun. My heart goes out to you. Hope you feel right as rain(snow?) real soon.

  10. Well, have some more whisky, Bill, these are stunning. They do look a bit dreamlike.
    Hope you don't catch any more bugs from your blogging buddies.
