Art On The Darkside Challenge

"Ignis Fatuus"


This Dark Side Theme  "Where The Wisps Lead You..."
was posted from January 15th  to February 13th and as life would have it,
I had so many things to do and totally missed the deadline!

This challenge intrigued me!
Meikoningin gave us several different definitions of how "WISPS" are  defined...
 
"A will-o'-the-wisp or ignis fatuus — also called will-o'-wisp,
corpse candle, jack-o'-lantern, friar's lantern, gunderslislik,
and wisp — is the folklore term for a ghostly light sometimes
seen at night or twilight over bogs, swamps, and marshes.
It resembles a flickering lamp and is sometimes said to
recede if approached."

I was not familiar with the phrase,
"Ignis Fatuus" 
and was eager to start putting together some images that I thought
would create that "wispy" kind of creepy artI found some foggy,
bleak-looking backgrounds and spooky images that already reflected some
kind of eerie light in the background!

After I finished working on the art piece I started for this challenge
 I realized that I still had a huge file of eerie images that I wanted to
use to create more art with the Ignis Fatuus theme!  
 
Here are the other seven "Will O' The Wisp" art pieces I created!!!

Art On The Dark Side Challenge #70

Frida Kahlo has been my favorite artist for many years!
I  love Frida's brilliant art work, her bold style of fashion,
and her stubborn resolve to get everything she could out of life in spite
of her debilitating health problems. When I saw this image of
Frida in her bright green skirt and black shawl,
I immediatley began to create this art piece for the challenge!

Here's my "Bones" Entry
Frida Kahlo Style!!!

I hope you liked my entry
 for the Art on the Dark Side Challenge!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
