Over on June's blog there is a weekly challenge.
The prompt for this week is "lyrics."
I chose "This Is One of Those Moments" from the movie "Yentl." For those not familiar; the movie is about a Jewish girl who wants nothing more than to read and study. Her father is a teacher and gives in to his young daughter's desire but when he dies she is forced to take make a big decision to continue her studies.

The song talks about the things in our lives that "no man can take away" such as learning and memories.

The background is cobalt green and iridescent pearl acrylics. The images were stuck down with gel medium and then gone over with gesso, stamps, Staz-On ink and Distress Ink, with computer generated words.

It "talks" about the big moments of my life, getting married, having our daughter, looking forward to grandchildren and spending time with them, visiting the West coast, owning my own horse...
but also the small moments: chatting with friends, reading a good book, stopping to smell the daisies.

All moments that I "will remember all my life."
