Of Sepia and Relief and Thrifting....
Today, I am linking up my heart's thoughts with Leigh for her Thrifty Thursdays here:
Every 3-D relief item in this post was thrifted from one place or another over the YEARS.... Know what you like...Be patient...Feather with Thriftiness. :-)
A relief is a sculptured artwork where a carved or modelled form is raised (or in the case of a sunken relief, lowered) from a plane from which the main elements of the composition project (or sink). Raising or lowering the plane is achieved by removing material not relevant to the image. In the case of sunken relief, the material composing the central image is carved out.
An object such as a coin would be considered "low" relief.
In the following objects of art/decor from my home... the work would be considered "high" relief.
Anyone who follows along here at my e-journal blog knows this.....

I like objects made from iron and metal. forged and strong from the heat-induced transformation.
You may or may not know....
I like sepia photos. images of by-gone days before color, and black and white photography.
I like 3-D relief art.. it makes me think of the Artist chiseling and carving and shaping...very much like God works on me....all the time...to make something more lovely, more detailed than what was first put on the workbench...giving depth to areas where I need it...raising up the main character and attributes HE wants others to see in a daughter of HIS...

God's blessings to all visitors who dropped by my little blog today. A place where I can share, have fun, express something that is on my heart, and be grateful for wonderful people out there who also do the same! It's a small world. Hugs to all my bloggy sisters.... Have an outstanding day...
Don't forget our military heroes who are both nearby and in remote places of this world defending and protecting the freedoms of all people. God BLESS, STRENGTHEN, and PROTECT them.
