When the first person gets the answer / or: I finish the deviation and Post it, at which point, I shall either update my current journal with the "alert (+watch) watchers" selected... or create a new journal if it's that time again..., and insert the fact in my Journal (+ "Journal Contents" header) Prob October 31st if possible... or failing that, in November sometime.... Probably to celebrate 0ne year of being "Nicotine-free" having stopped...very abruptly! ...via "cold-turkey" on Nov 28th 2012....
Who can enter the contest:
Anyone who comments on this deviation with a guess....
If your comment guess is your entry to the contest: insert: "Entry" or "Guess" as part of sentence in your comment ...Easy Peasy!...Right?.....right!
How Many Comments /Guesses are we allowed:
As many as you like... check other peoples attempts and my replies tho' first...., naturally...
* Important Notes:
There will be a slightly more revealing pic and clue sometime on Sat / Sunday each week via "update" on this same deviation as well as, perhaps...to help..a little... bonus clue(s) inserted obliquely in my Journal, articles for #projecteducate and here in this "Artist's Description" box... ([3rd ||Sep||2013] new insert/clue ): .....like the fact that from now on, any correctly identified clue mentioned in a comment by a deviant on this page will be indicated by the addition of one word, then two then three, in correct order L-R, as more clues are solved from the following phrase, (appropriate.. don't you think?....):
"... elementary, my dear friend..." said Sherlock Holmes to Doctor Watson..."
to the appropriate clue above........thus the set of clues will appear weirder and more enigmatic-looking as clue-solving progresses... </b>
*(not to be vocalised by those a touch inebriated and using this as a fun!, but silly party game... I heard that innuendo of a description by the way!.... be sensitive in public.. yeah?.... P. )

So you'ld better check it out?................OK?....
Honestly, I am at a total loss, and the crytic/pun stuff is just leaving me totally confused. So just guessing at this point.
Clue 4: We established this is the artist and her fantastical work related to dreams, magic and fantasy.
Clue 6-7.5: too cryptic/confusing...I cannot even begin to fathom what they mean. I tried.
Clue 8: referring back to 6, and what comes to mind are lamps or lights
Clue 9: Song lyrics? A poem? I tried googling it and all sorts of stuff came up for a guy named Drake. I'm going to assume that this guy has nothing to do with this.
I'm rusty on my Shakespeare stuffs seeing as I haven't had to read any of it for...oh, gosh, now I feel old. Nearly 15 years since I've read any of it. I'm vaguely reminded of A Midsummer Night's Dream but that doesn't seem to fit well considering the season.
With the shells and baubles I'm immediately thinking of mermaids, but with the clues about walking and woods...well, a mermaid doesn't quite seem to fit. Will o' the Wisp does. They bob around, confusing travelers at night to follow them.
And like those travelers I am now officially lost.
bill is in the round so 3d.....
if nick drake then no.... but tragic and amazing minstrel....
my own poem/ lyric.....
look up rackham and midsummer nights dream
los res: no y no y no... lo siento miras los otras empiezas... no es por aqui..claro..?
necessitas leer los phrases 1 --. 8 (y 9 manana: domingo...con otra photo...)
btw: phenomenal el precio de SOL Contest... me voy escribir el annuncio de los ganadores domingo o lunes... y cojer las direcciones que necessitamos por notas etc....
god I love you! trust you to come out with something left field. yaaaay! and: guess what?...you are: totally and utterly wrong!, you couldn't have been more wrong if you had tried to juggle three hamsters in front of Sting... after you'd set them alight!
nonetheless: xxxxxx x!
Peter.... how about mon/tues 2pmish?
Not sure 2pm good, nor mon/tues - can I get back to you on that and
could the time be 3 ???
I love you too.
3 or later is good..actually, it's better than 2!, 2 was my earliest offer as I'm bizzzzzzzzzzzzy in a.m. always....... note me...
by the way:
am now, also, making a set that you will, I hope, totally flip over... and it was inspired by your psychotropic wristband.....with:
- dozens of 8mm /8mm+ Swarowski's, 2-3,000 other beads, approx. 500yds of thread, and a sh** load of BS&T'S... It's to go with the subject of the WIP OS as the all is revealed but you still need to work out what it is...FINAL PICTURE CLUE....
love + more, forever, your bro' Peter.
x xxx xxx!
x: hey!, wait for me xxx: hehehe! xxx!: our turn to be first...yaaay!
Well can't wait to see your new piece, are you sure it isn't Nelson Mandela ?
I am nearly finished my new piece too, so I'll show you mine if you show me yours.
Your hissy sissy loves you.
Oh and x is soooo glad to be first
absopositively NOT! Mandela -ala, -ula, -ola -ila.....
Entry: A candleholder
Firstly: Can I just say:
you're brill..thx, (one of the reasons why I made d---m! sure you were featured in my "pocket guide"...(yr shop via link, also....)
Thanks again! for the typo correction...my house suffered an attempted "damage of property/attempted burglary" by some local racist youths the night before I was writing it, so was a bit "woozy and preoccupied" shall we say?... but life goes on right?... and this, (b+k), blog was already 3 days overdue(personal deadline, not the group's...)... so therefore, btw, having said the above, and with no lack of respect whatsoever.. I shan't leave an "actual" reply to your comment @ the journal.. OK?
And: don't worry, the: "stick to the letter of the law" "Rule police", are never, ever, going to appear anywhere near my stuff!, just like @ "Bracelet's + Knots"( ..although, nonetheless: thank you for being "self-correcting" & precise! I love that in people!). The reason why I specify: "insert: "Entry", is because I can recognise the shape when my eyes get a bit tired sometimes as I'm "disabled" locomotively, and do a lot of teleworking.... so I can then react to inform the person asap of their success...or lack of it...OK?* ...... (I'm about "Justice" not "Law"....)
*........which in your case is:
Entry: A Hat.....no...sigh..... a very plausible guess! (bearing in mind my DD'd Opera Hat....)
Entry: A Candleholder......getting warmer...but still also, alas!.......no...sigh.....
Entry: A Mandala.......yay!.... still getting warmer, but in a "different" direction..(hehe! ).but still also, alas!....no...sigh.....
0/3... oh! oh! Sorry! Nice try, especially "Candleholder" + "Mandala"...which, btw, is a fairly oblique clue for my macramé peer and creative sister....
Best Wishes! (hi + respects to family....)
Please note: Important!... (and: keep guessing...! (I've got a "side-bet" on you... with my friend Jackie here in Devon....)
I'm putting a bonus visual + text clue up.... (you heard it first! ....a little reward for helping me out with the typo.......you're welcome in my "press-room", front row, anytime ChaosFay!...... ..).P.
I shall use your guesses as the next text clue for my bonus text+ visual clue to be posted in about an hour..... from time of comment...P.
hehe! did you think it would be that easy darling!... erh!erh!....wrong... candlelight: chandelier.... come! come!...There's an awful lot of extremely talented people on DA... anything less than "tantalisingly enigmatic" evoking at least a reasonable minor outpouring of:
"D**n!", "C'est pas vrai!", "Ach der Teufel!", "Oh!, La Vache!" "Bug***!", "S**t!", "Hija/o de P**a!", "Eh ba, Me*de Alors!", and a wave of other epithets I plead ignorance to in every language from Tchokwe to Thailandese! "Pixie talk to Polish,..."(LOTR) Elvish" to Ecuadorian, Vizcayan ...to Vogon... Ibicenco to Inuit...etc. ,
....would, in my estimation, be nothing short of "Insulting to their intelligence..." (including both(?) of ours, naturally( ) ...don't you agree?.....and
...lots of them would probably mean I'm doing my job fairly well, and I ought to, perhaps, give some serious thought to continuing* as an, Artisan.*
*(..absolutely!, .too be sure!: in a modest fashion..., as I would appear to have, at the very least: ...Some Potential...?)
Entry: Tree of Life interpretation
Entry: Faery House (that is a random guess, but this does remind me of one)
Entry: Hanging Altar
Entry: A totem of some sort
Entry: Another tree of lights, but hanging up this time, thought that would be a chandelier...and I think a lampshade is also out.
Entry: Porch Pull...that that would seem too simple. Then again sometimes it is the simple things that speak most loudly.
Those are my guesses for now. I'll keep an eye on this to see more clues if mine don't hit the mark.
Oooooops! Sorry! ....now look amongst my work for a link...... (oblique as ever....) ..after you've read this....
I forgot to insert: probably because it was one of those things so obvious one forgets to insert it assuming one has done so already... that your Josephine's Wall answer/ solving statement was entirely correct!, well done!
it did say, (in: "Important notes" (you see..... the title is correct......), that I will be revisiting my (this) Deviation Notes, My Project Educate Articles and My profile page Journal with further clues... ),
So there is a further clue entered which I will put in my artists comments, but have only actually, told you about...
Here: "New Clue: contained in "Important notes" and added at the end, the clue is also dated at the beginning as "proof" that it's new, ....." P.
OK.... I now have new keyboard so... sorry to be slow replying... beyond my control..
Right! first up your answers:
Entry: Tree of Life x done here: fav.me/d2nazbd
Entry: Faery House x on back burner...phew! too close...
Entry: Hanging Altar x nice idea will put on list...
Entry: A totem of some sort x almost finished..fav.me/d2msvuf.

Ok, you can count that as entry. Its a headpiece.
heehee! wait 'til you see next 2 pics... and clues... by the way: "necklace" not precise enough... sorry! (not a necklace anyway... btw!)
Nice to see you! btw.. hope all is creatively fabutastic in your wonderfully wacky world... ciao fer now! Peter.
