We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

A whiter shade of pale ...

The next letter in the Craft Barn challenge is W. I must have over-dosed on paint with all my watercolour classes, because this is another entry where no paint is involved!

My chosen word is white. I've long been fascinated with colour - and the absence of it; how white comes in many shades, and how you can play with shadows to create shapes.

Hence this abstract piece! The definition of white was so long it would have taken up half the page, so I've just extracted one aspect.

Women think of all colours except the absence of colour. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.

  1. Absolutely stunning piece of artwork. I love it!

  2. Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow!! I LOVE it. I was in a round robin swap where one of the players chose white as her color of choice. I was truly surprised how many whites there were, especially when you started looking at paint chip samples. I love your repetitive monocolored entry. It is fantastic.

  3. Beautiful, I love your creativity ! xx

  4. A great idea for the challenge, I didn't think of that approach.

  5. I love this idea - there are so many whites and white textured card too. It's very striking even just being white!

  6. What clever illustration of White! Good choice of word.

  7. Stunning artwork, very creative. I love this.

  8. A very clever way to illustrate your chosen word.

  9. This is really lovely and very relaxing to look at. Quite mesmerising xx
