playing with photos

Today is a very short post showing a couple of photos where I have been experimenting with photo effects. What do you think about them? I like the reflection in the window. There is a lot of room for possibilities in this technique.

This could be a fantastic background for something. Not sure what yet. And it could be a lot of fun to paint, swirling precisely placed drops of paints into the swirl.

The final picture shows a style that could be fun to try with watercolor pencils. It is a snapshot of another artists picture, one my mom likes very much, especially for the colors. She wants to do a room in her house with blue, green, and camel color. This artist, Lee Ann, from Nevada City, likes to do giant canvas’s–four feet by six feet. Bob says he would be willing to make me some big canvas’s.

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.

  1. Love the window, the rustic look of glass against metal and the reflection is wonderful. The swirl effect is amazing too. Love the colors. Good work.
