Chalice Well

By AngieLatham    
EDIT : Thankyou so much Pete for POTW!!!! Thankyou everyone for all your congrat and comments, I have been away in Scotland all week so haven't logged in since I got the award. Am still in Glasgow now, so will catch upproperly next week when I am home Smile well chuffed Grin

A bit of Artwork to break up all the landscapes Smile

This is my take on the Chalice Holy Well which is situated at the foot of Glastonbury Tor in Somerset, also reputed to be the Ancient Isle of Avalon. There are many legends and folklore attatched to the well including Goddess worship and the Authurian Legends, where it is supoosed to be the resting place of the Holy Grail.

The lid is beautifully ornate and represents , amongst other things,the cycle of life and rebirth and how we are all connected.

Hope you like it...a bit of magic for a monday morning Smile

Hi Vicki

Everything in the picture is a photograph except the white butterflies and 'sparkles' and the sun beam which are PS brushes. The background is a photograph of a foggy wood, then I have merged a picture of the well and pictures of bluebells to make the woodland carpet. Smile

Thankyou everyone once again for all the awards, comments and congrats left me for this pic. Grin
