Gothic arches


this week is with the theme Transitions such as season to season, night to day, young to old etc. I checked some of the challenge art out yesterday, didn't really want to as I was afraid the posted art would affect my ideas, you know. Well, I'm glad I did because, I saw some gorgeous art and so many different interpretations, I was stunned. And when I saw what Karen Owen the hostess did, I was doubly glad as, when I heard what the challenge was, I saw her srt in my mind! I was going to do almost exactly what Karen did, but wouldn't have done half as good a job of it tho'! LOL

There were a few night to day using black and white, which I normally love to use but this time I wanted to use colour to try to achieve it. I also wanted to get more than 1 interpretation in here so I got day to night, activity to rest, egg to bird, and openness to mystery. I had so much fun with this one.

Hope you like it!

Mary-Beth, I'm not sure you couldn't have done my interpretation even better than me, BUT what you did is phenomenal. It works on so many levels, and its simplicity is the best part. I LOVE it!
