Lizzy Frizzfrock said...

The last FF image is quite interesting. The images above the houses look like trees, twisters, smoke from chimneys. Intriguing.
xxxooo Lizzy

Cool! Go trees, Go!
Sorry I didn't respond sooner - I'm paying for my garden activities now, but it is worth it...my gardens are slightly less weedy now :)

Audrey said...

Oooo...these are ALL good, but I am particularly fond of the speech bubble trees. And I love the use of color and the "floaty" sensation that accompanies the second one.

Hope you are well - missed your post yesterday!
Love audrey

Interesting images, as usual! The only one that does it for me is dinner. I love the twister trees and the thatched houses. And the stones almost look like jellybeans~Emily will like that ;)

I hope you're having a spectacular day filled with sunshine and promise!
My heart is heavy today but because of my uptight sisters I can't say anything on my blog. Maybe you could send some healing energy to my dear brother in New Hampshire.

I have a full day of patients from one end of the peninsula to the other. I think it's good that I'll be staying busy.

Love you, sister raven!
Have a glorious friday :)

The second one reminds me of our sister who was totally surprised to see what was under her own skirt!

I love Fantasy Fridays ... xoxo

Marion said...

Beautiful, thought-provoking, mysterious art. Fabulous!!

Wishing you a peaceful weekend!

Lola said...

Bellissimo! Thank you, Renee.

You always provide generous amounts of thought provoking images in your Breakfast Lunch and Dinner Fantasy Fridays.

I think I like the hopeful trees spiraling from the chimneys best. Call me an optimist.

Ciao dear dear friend

Mim said...

wonderful artwork!
Just stopped by to say hello, been thinking about you...

Sonia ;) said...

Renee,
I love the colors and the third one is amazing the way something so common as chimney smoke is turned into nature, alive again...says rebirth to me...Have a enjoyable weekend....

Smiles,

Sonia ;) xoxoxo

These are the sorts of pictures you have to sit and look at for a while. I especially love that first one.

A Spoonful Of Sugar said...

I am just imagining all the apple cake I could make if I lived in the village in the last pic! Have a great weekend, Renee!! Lisa

kj said...

these are beautiful and vibrant, renee, but my favorite is the last one--trees from the chimneys--what a great idea! do you know valgal, renee (valerie walsh)--she is one of our blog pals and she paints magical houses. she would love this "community". and all those, what are they?--rocks, apples?

you've been quiet today. i hope your day is okay. thinking of you as i now do every day. love.

Bella Sinclair said...

Oh, wow, wow, WOW! That middle image just sucked me right in. Amazing detail! And I really liked the last one, too. I guess it's a good thing that those giant apples don't fall on the village itself, but those poor people! They have to jump off those roads to nowhere just to get them. Amazing. My imagination pales in comparison.

Woman in a Window said...

Such fantastical sights. Do I live far beneath the earth's surface to not see them, but to only imagine them?
thanks for them.

lakeviewer said...

I can't quite connect them to each other yet. The first and last seem to be about connections, needing one to create the other.

The middle one is too complex for me to get at first glance.

Now that I'm officially off meds and finished with physical therapy I must get on with my regular life; lots awaiting.

Pamela Terry and Edward said...

Wow. I love these!!

Wishing you a lovely weekend!!

Sue said...

Thank you for introducing me to these artists. I just discovered your blog after having the honour of being given the Renee award.

You have an exceptional blog and I it is so clear to me how your friends Ces and Bella were inspired to
create this Renee award.

You are an incredible woman.

Elizabeth said...

oooo--I love that last one. It reminds me of something I might have imagined or dreamt as a little girl. How do you come up with these beautiful images?

Jaqi said...

What fab images, very thought provoking, thanks for sharing them, Jaqi

Debrina said...

Ooooh - I love the middle one, how stunning!

Aleksandra said...

Im sending you whole field of lavander,Sandra

Tessa said...

Hello sweet Renee - what a delightful collection of images yet again! You are an amazing woman, y'know, to find these beauties and share them with us. Your blog is not only all of the things I mentioned when I spoke of it in my Wondrous Awards post, but it is an art gallery in its own right. What an eye - and heart - you have for beauty. What is art but a way of seeing?

Flying Colors said...

Oh these illustrations are superb... So fabulouso the imagination of these artist... Thank you for extracting and presenting them...
More prayers have been released from here and there... Bless you!

kj said...

hmmmm. good habits form quickly. it's easy to miss you, renee. but i also hope you are alright and just preoccupied with something good and easy. whatever the case, i'm stopping by to give you a heartfelt hardy hello and hug.

BT said...

Oh these are wonderful, especially the central one. so so pretty.

angelique said...

That second picture is amazing. I would love to have a large one of those on my wall.

Jasmijn Paauwe said...

oh my, you are so talented. it's beautiful

Caroline said...

Hi Renee, Just clocking in - been away during the week and will be out again from Tuesday. The third image is my favourite - where did you find it? Looked at the signature but can't make much of that - it's an interesting image though and if there's some meaning to it I like to think it has perhaps something to do with the apple not falling far from the tree - who knows?!
