Sunday is Gothic Arch Challenge day. I love playing along. Arches have been my favorite shape to work in, ever since I did my very first one.
This week's prompt is "Spain." Since I've been in storytelling art mode this week, I did a story.
I imagined that this couple, once the secret of their romance was out, ran off to Spain and lived happily ever after. I had intended to do a Frieda theme, but somehow this just happened. And the funny thing is that it's a photo of my grandparents, who married after a whirlwind courtship.
It has been a week for arches here, so I will show you a few more. These are all tiny arches, destined for soldering under glass, so I have not finished the edges.
The back of the next one uses some words I stumbled across in a book I had been using for old text. It says, "And for the first time, it dawned upon her she was an artist."
