This route down the Rabbit Hole produces wonderful results.................... but in the end it's your creative mind that says YES! THAT'S IT!

What a gas!. . . light that is. . . gaslight. . . get it. . . never mind. . . since this is about electricity. . .

Great colors! I love it. I am even enjoying the grainy quality. Really gives the illusion of having done gouache on illustration board or something. . . only perfect. Stellar performance.

Mechanically, what you have put down is flawless. Only thing this very pedestrian artisan would be looking for would be the flame(s) or glowing filament or Tinkerbell or whatever, if in fact that was what you were doing. But one step at a time. Your stuff has gotten so competent I am speaking to you like you're an old pro.

Takes on a flavor of those old Mazda illustrations. . . not the car, but Edison's, via Maxfield Parrish and some of his contemporaries.

Well done, Alexandra, and we'll be sure to leave a light on for ya. . . but that's a different advert. . . :D

Cesare, Thanks dear mate!

Steve, when you get the time-check out the art projects section and check out Peter's tutorial and project area. A warning though-it is addictive.:eek: Thanks for your kind comment, and I am sure you can do this. What is so fun is that each experiment is like a strand of DNA-unique and cannot be duplicated.

D-Akey, Thank you kind friend for such a lovely and generous comment, and as far as light as with your comment was indeed a light left on for me.

Reminds me of a Japanese lantern Sandy, beautiful, you sure know how to pick out titles for your paintings, I sometimes have trouble with that:D;);););):):):)

This is what I thought of Pat. I've always wanted one or learn how to make them. Thanks dear lady!
