ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " I "



Today's letter IS  " I ".
I
have been so busy that I haven't been on a photoshoot,
so IT'S back INTO the archives.

I am entitling this post

IMAGES and  ICONS

The first IMAGE shows the symbol for "I love you."



The world seems to be full of pain and sorrow.

I think this IMAGE depicts the troubled times we live IN.



But

I have Hope and I know where I am going.

This IS another painting that my friend Shane Grammer created.



Michaelangelo's Pieta is definitely an ICONIC  IMAGE.

This full size figure IS on a gentleman's private park.
He had IT bronze cast and sent to his home in Northern California
from Italy.
I believe there are only 200 exact replicas made.
The patina makes IT truly look like IT was chisled from marble.



Lastly,
I will leave you with a brilliant IMAGE of Summer.

Be sure to enlarge each IMAGE to see the detail.

I  IMAGINE you will want to go to my link and see what others
have posted for the letter " I ".

Thanks for leaving a comment.

Beautiful collection and symbols, Sue!
Have seen Michaelangeo's Pietà many times. I tried to figure out if I have seen it before it got damaged (later repaired), but I am not sure.

Wishing you a wonderful week,
Merisi
