DC No. 93: Lighthouse

What a stormy week it’s been. I will leave it at that. 
Thank goodness for Renilde’s  theme this week—LIGHTHOUSE—a beacon for hope and stability.


Sifting through some of my “scrap” monoprints, I found one with a towering silhouette shape amidst a turbulent, violent, ocean.  With conté pastels I added a ship and the radiating light.



 Hoping for calmer waters this week.

Dear Emily,
great monoprint, great added drawing! I like the connection of lighthouse and ship very much. And I feel the influence of the weather at your place... fantastic!

dear Emily, i like the white in your work,
your lighthouse, slender with a solid base spreading its flashes and rays, the ship looks safe in those beams of light no matter how that ocean thunders, thanks for a wonderful inspiring work, xx
