Tales and Legends
Mystery, unknown and unknowable
Stories passed on
From olden days
Based on something …
Experiences and fears
Prejudices and behavoir
Twisting and turning
Spinning and twirling
Who knows how they started
Often, not always,
A nugget of wisdom remains.

This looks like African inspired fabric! Very nice!
Perfect work with fabulous colors!
I love this work and the words too. Wonderful.
I get an american desert vibe from this piece, in me it evokes a sense of desert heat and deep red mesa’s. wonderful.
I saw a totem icon – very strong image and in tune with tales/legends. Composition clearly pushes me up – uplifting and positive. Not at all placid.
Very cool – I like it. Great colors range.
I will look at IF link, thank you.
I like this mythical creature you have created. Here we see him (her?) in his natural environment, which is so beautiful and colorful.
Awesome piece, Diane! Nice work.
Immediately took me to my love of the southwest. Great piece, Diane!
Great piece of work. It has the feeling of African mythical creatures, and the feeling of spinning tales. I was going to try and enter this Illustration but I couldn’t manage the thumbnails!
Life’s experiences are opportunities for gaining knowledge. Wisdom results when that knowledge is shared. This is what I gather from your words, and it goes well with your inspiring piece. This design would make wonderful fabric too!
I love what you’ve done here. The colors are so vibrant and alive. It touches so many cultures Peruvian, African, Mayan. It also has a Southwest flare. Beautiful!
I agree with Studio Lolo and Fannie – this would be a fun fabric design. I think I can see open books in it, as well. Maybe it’s a Rorschach print 🙂
I love the colorful design on this artwork, Diane. Keep ’em coming!
This is very lovely and very spiritual I love it! Sorry I missed it yesterday!
The colors stand out and it is a very original illo for this week!
This is beautiful! I absolutely love the colours. Fantastic.
