Happy Hols...IF "talisman"


I was looking at doing an Easter Island moai to mark the upcoming break anyway, and I was glad to see the dictionary definition of talisman as an object thought to possess magical properties. I'm sure the Polynesians on Rapa Nui felt the moai were talismanic... and that's good enough for me! I was on a bit of a roll after the "home sweet home" post and wanted to play around with a similar text treatment and use of watercolour texture. A lot of fun to do and both these posts came together nice a quick which is always a plus. Have a happy few days off whatever your beliefs (or lack of...:)
