Give Thanks…

NO MATTER WHAT Hmmm… well isn’t that a wee bit grandiloquent?! Between the Word of the Day, grandiloquent, and the weekend writing prompt, peristeronic, I’m beginning to think that I need to keep a thesaurus and a dictionary at my desk!  Grandiloquent: Language or behavior is very formal, literary, or exaggerated, and is used by […]

Inspiral Me

I’m happy to report that my inner child is still ageless. Well, I had a little fun today, and it made me feel like a kid again! I had some big ideas for art projects that I wanted to do, on Adobe Illustrator, and I couldn’t seem to get it together. So… I found some […]

Faith to Fly

Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark. Rabindranath Tagore Another recycled image today! I had forgotten about my “feather close-ups” that I wanted to dig into some months ago. When I saw the Ragtag Daily Prompt: Abstract in Black and White I went searching and found one that […]

Unraveling

The chaotic bold, Hides her shadow. Underneath this bravado, She shrinks. Her quilted facade, Is unraveling, And soon… She will be revealed. As I was putting this post together, I realized a couple of things. First of all, I’m not comfortable writing words that aren’t bursting with sunshine and happiness (except for my occasional rants, […]

Art-Hollywood Closed

Hollywood has unfortunately become a memory. It’s nothing but a sign on the side of a hill. —Mickey Rooney I haven’t taken my walk yet but I’ll be on my way shortly! I’m still testing out the new photo editor with some of my older images. This upcycled photograph (the original taken while hiking up […]

Hanging On

Leaf Art

I watched little leaves, Drifting in the wind.Spinning, twirling, floating.Landing ever so softly,On the ground beneath my feet. On the branch above,One was still hanging on.Quivering in the breeze. And I wondered…Was it shaking from fear,Afraid to let go?Or was it fighting to break free,Hoping to fly? And I wondered…If that were me,What would I do?Would […]

City Lines

City life is millions of people being lonesome together.—Henry David Thoreau I took some additional photographs of the sunset a few nights ago (pictured in Mesmerized) and I liked this one because of all the utility lines. I like how they added interest to the sky… sort of City meets Sunset. With my new photo […]

Child’s Play

Abstract Blue Lights

They’re coming for us! Swords blazing bright, fight or flight… Get out while you can! It kind of ruins the mood when I try to explain everything, but this Image and Haiku are just too weird to NOT have something to back them up. The base of the abstract is a jungle gym at a […]

Nostalgia

Roses

Butterfly kisses, Sweet memories, pure and chaste, Taste of innocence. Today’s Everything Red is another recycling project; a collage of red roses with a guiltless white. It stands out like a sore thumb… the white sheep of the family. There’s some symbolism there I’m sure. Reusing the old arouses nostalgia… it’s a great way to […]

The Exhibit

Abstract Art Exhibit

Let the fire inside you burn. I’m having a fun time with this new series. The possibilities are endless, and I think of new things every day. I’ve recycled some older pieces for today’s Everything Red. The red abstract is from many moons ago, and the shadowy aesthete is my youngest son—posing in a photo I […]

Rescue Abstract Art

Sometimes a dramatic rescue is a simple act of showing up. This piece is all about Gil. I think of him when I see red, especially if it’s an emergency vehicle. He’s the kind of person that just shows up. I’m extremely grateful for his friendship, ear, wisdom, and his extraordinary ability to point people […]

These are a […]

Love and Light

And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. Genesis 1:3 It’s been too long! I think this is the craziest, busiest semester I’ve ever had. It’s all good though because I love (most of) my classes and there are only 3 weeks left before it’s over. YAY! I wanted to pop in […]

Salsa Dancing

The newest addition to my Garden Art series: I know, I know… It doesn’t look like it came from the garden. Believe it or not, this image was created with cherry tomatoes. Although they’re quite tasty, the photograph was a big bore. After getting a little crazy… our ripe tomatoes on the vine have been […]

Birds of a Feather
