Gothic Arch Sunday

The Gothic Arch Sunday challenge is back on blogger which I am really pleased with because it feels like it is 'home' again...
The theme is to be inspired by the paintings of an English man called Lord Frederick Leighton, which are quite vintage in appearance.

My DH returned last friday night from Cyprus, so glad to have him back! We are having real fall weather at the moment and the birds are getting ready to migrate as they are sitting in their thousands in the trees - the noise they make is awesome! That is probably what inspired my tree on this arch.

  10. Your arch is so beautiful with its fall colors. You matched the colors in the painting really well. Birds amassed in trees is too much like Alfred Hitchcock's Birds movie for me, but as art it works well. Lovely piece, Jacqueline.
