EDM 123 Bell

As electronics have invaded our lives bells have disappeared. I love the sound of church bells and nautical bells and Christmas is full of bells. For this challenge I remembered the brass bell on the outside wall of our side "breezeway" entrance. This bell has been here forever and occasionally someone pulls the braided rope and it gives a loud clang. Brass I believe and tarnished for sure. Rightly posted in my journal pages as my grown children will remember this bell forever. Note.book journal Artline pen and watercolor
