A Better Me

It’s always exciting to see a new year approaching, and the word goal really got me thinking today. Not about my goals for the year ahead, but about the goals I’ve already set—over the last couple of years—and how they have helped change, or shape me, in ways I never expected. In all honesty, sometimes… Read More

Mindful

Many people are alive but don’t touch the miracle of being alive.  Thích Nhất Hạnh After last night’s post, I decided to commit to black and whites for a while. I mentioned that I wasn’t sure why I haven’t done more—since I love them so much—but after working on the image that I’ve featured here,… Read More

A Supernatural Glow

This is a bizarre piece. Doo do do do… (the theme from Twilight Zone- slightly off key) Another shot of the neighborhood squirrel hanging out in the loquat tree. I layered it with a piece of metal and got attached to the bluish glow he is now nestled in. I guess I’m going for the… Read More

TGIF

Hello everyone!! I’ve been spending a massive amount of time experimenting on Photoshop and I almost hate to say it, but it’s really hard for me to come up for air. And I’m only in the beginning stages…  I just love learning new things! I’ve mixed a Utah field, one of my many taken from a… Read More
