At the Crossing


I'm finally getting some extra creative energy to work on my Faery Crossing site. This was the first site I ever created, I think it was back in 1988. Its been my playground ...a place where I can explore new ideas and techniques with abandon. There's a large audience, it gets 10,000 hits a month, but they are all pretty anonymous, so I feel very safe putting myself out there in a creative way.
This is the menu page. Its a montage of this and that... I used a painting by Grimshaw as the background. Its in the public domain I believe, painted over a hundred years ago. I found a photo of the gypsy wagon online and incorporated it on the road, a signpost from Russia....other snips and bits. Funny how my digital art is looking more and more like paper collage.

Hi There,

I've been a great fan of your Faery Crossing website for some years now. I just wanted to say, I absolutely love your art work / word salads and it has been a great inspiration to me on many occasions. Thanks a lot for this wonderful piece of creativity.

Thanks Abby! If you follow all the links from that menu page on The Faery Crossing site you'll see there's lots more. And I'm going to continue to flesh out that site bit by bit. Its my playground. :)

Laila, why thank you! You've probably seen lots of changes at The Faery Crossing over the years. You also must have visited my design site to know about mt "word salads". :) Thanks for visiting...and for commenting. {{{hugs}}}
