Bells


Bells

Three bells from Rebecca's mantle. The set came from a Catholic Church with a story about her departed husband and my friend, Ken. The evening spent in reminiscences...

So reminds me "For Whom the Bell Tolls......"

Oh Lin, terrific job -- the detail on the right hand bell especially -- the lines are perfect! Love the way the colors turned out on all of them.
Hugs,

Well done! Were you thinking of him as you drew? That makes a nice memory piece that will always call him up when you see this piece.

The reflections and the depth on the handles is really well done!

Very nice work on the bells. You did a great job on acheiving the metallic feel.

These shine and glow and I can almost hear them ringing! Lovely rendering of metal. I have a treasured Tibetan bell that my dad bought me at a ethnic art sale many years ago. I like to ring it every now and then to hear the lovely sound and to remember him.
