And this is one of the crabapple pics I took just this spring
also. Can you tell I love the flowers during this season?
I am busy getting these catalogued and organized in
order to start sending them off to the publishers for
consideration. (If anyone out there wants to volunteer
to be my assistant, I sure need one..lol)

I have always started with the photos, and used them as
references for paintings and drawings. With the advent of
all this digital stuff, my photographs have been elevated into
the "art" catagory as well. It is much easier to take them,
print them, and share them. My brother will be so amused
to hear me say all that....I was dragged kicking and screaming
into the digital age. But I have no choice now, and I have
learned to embrace it.
This is one of the first photos I tried to market and sell. I
just sold another print of this image just last week. It is
somewhere on a quaint corner in Venice.
I am preparing to submit some images soon to some
Christian publishers...will have to see what happens!
It's time for the circle to come full circle I hope.

I mentioned I had been trying to photograph some
of our little backyard birds over the weekend. This
wisteria is in full bloom, and I was trying to combine
the two! After reviewing all 50 shots I took, this is
the best one. It was really difficult trying to capture
the birds in the bush...they move really fast! Some of
my pics have little brown blurs in them...too slow.
I like this one, and I am going to add some scripture
about God and sparrows....perfect.

these are my lady bugs....
One of the "art" things I do each week is teach
some beginner lessons to some children in the
community. It is such fun; they are so eager to try
something new each time. This past week, my two
talented 6th grade girls did this little project along with
me. It was a lesson about positive and negative shapes,
and I had them draw the geometric shapes first. Then
they traced the bug of their choice overlapping the shapes.
Then they colored them in, interchanging the postive and
negative values inside and outside the shapes.
I thought they turned out really neat, and I told them
I would post them here.
then, this week, we added the element of color.
This is my example for them...these graphic
dragonflies. They are still working on their's...will
have to share the final results.
