Every Inchie Monday: Etna

Hello Folks,

This week's word at Every Inchie Monday is Etna.  I work in advance with my inchies and made most of them when the list came out and in the weeks following.  So when I made my Etna inchies in February, the volcano was actually errupting.   How cool.

My first version is a part of a painting called "Mount Etna from Taorima" by Thomas Cole.  I don't know the date of the painting, but Cole lived from 1801-1858.  He was an American artist known as the founder of the Hudson River School, a movement of American landscape painters.  I adore landscape painting.  I really liked the classical ruins in the foreground of this painting, giving a sense of how long this mountain has been erupting.

My quilled inchie is an attempt to get the idea of the fire and sparks, etc. that is part of a volcanic eruption.  It is really quite sparkly!

Hope you erupt with happiness this week.
