Postcard #5

"Grace"  Original is acrylic on canvas paper 16x12
This painting figures prominently in the novel, The Beautiful Life of Bethesda Bloom. (2012) by Will Conway of Dover, NH.
It is the story of a woman who faces the daunting task of giving birth to herself after her comfortable life is shattered by lies and deceit.
His message is... "Best wishes on your won art-- whatever form it takes."
Thanks Will

Agricultural greenhouse tents

are popping up all over the Central Coast.  I recently went on a field trip with the Santa Maria Camera Club to the Nipomo greenhouse tour.  I had to leave before the tour was over and heard I missed the most beautiful flowers... here are a few of the ones I did see.

52 colors with Eva Ricci

A year long of photographing one color for each month, I am loving this project, April was white and here is my collage.

Postcard #4

Comes from Angela Swan, she writes, " Worry is the darkroom where negatives are developed, Be positive and BELIEVE."
Photos by Angie,"We take a step, then we stumble.  The joy out of life is when we make a dance out of both"  ~Rich Turner
Thanks Angie for your little words of wisdom!

Across the Universe

Playing with double exposures and then processed in photoshop.  I love the way they turned out, can't wait to do more.

Postcard #3

Comes from Teresa Harrington Hazelbaker from Powder Springs, Georgia.  She writes, "As my artist's statement explains, my work is utterly incomprehensible and therefor full of deep significance."  ~Calvin
Thanks Teresa for the interesting postcard, I had fun trying to find the perfect place to photograph this.

I am taking part in Kat Sloma's LIBERATE YOUR ART postcard exchange again.  This is my third year participating.  I love this piece of the Star Trails in Joshua Tree by Pamela Bowers Photography.  She writes:
Teach me your mood, O patient stars.  Who climb each night the ancient sky.  Leaving on space no shade, no scars, no trace of age, no fear to die.  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
