Cat in the Covers

There was a reason I couldn't get my bed made. See that dark spot?

 Maci did not wish to be disturbed!

Sunflowers on Stripes

It never ceases to amaze me how many new photos can be created from one original. Considering how many backgrounds can be added and how many color variations and patterns there are, one photo can equal thousands.

Wild Turkeys at the Bird Feeder

These wild turkeys decided to share with the small birds and woodpeckers. They check out the feeder several times a day.

Turkey for Dinner

Don't you just hate it when someone marches up to your front door and announces they have arrived for dinner? He was lucky not to be the dinner!

New Year's Eve

This picture reflects the mood of the day here at my house. Some of the family departed yesterday. Those of us still here are having a quiet day and evening. We will say "Happy New Year" share a few hugs and kisses and go to bed, grateful for plenty of food and a warm house.

Happy New Year to you all.

Here is one that is a change of pace. Lots of color. A very contemporary feel with terrific energy.

Colors - aqua, teal, turquoise

A friend asked if I had any art work using aqua, teal or turquoise. Once I started searching, I realized I had quite a few using those colors. Take a look at these.

After further discussion, my friend narrowed her colors to shades of beige, white, a little brown with accents of turquoise.  This last one definitely has those colors.

Winter all Around

 One day it was September. Some leaves were turning but there was still lots of green around.

Before I was ready we were into winter - cold winds, snow and ice. So I will try to appreciate the beauty of the season while I fantasize about lolling in my hammock.

Art Show at Windham Hospital in Willimantic, CT

The art show is called The 6x6 with all work having the outside measurements of 6 inches square. In that small a form, I thought it necessary to choose photos that have impact and color.  Here are two of my three entries.

This show is sponsored by the Windham Regional Art Council.  Most of our member come from the Windham, Connecticut area.

Light Space Time Art Show

I have been flying high all day thinking of having my art in the Light Space Time juried online December exhibit and having placed with "Mennonite Farm." It has been great to share the news with my friends. Today was the artists' luncheon at the Main Street Cafe in Willimantic and I showed my award winning photo. After working so diligently at my photography, it is rewarding to see some results!

Will I rest and bask in the moment? Bask yes, but rest no. Tonight I attended my marketing workshop at MakeArtWork, sponsored by the Greater Hartford Art Council. I have received a commission for a bracelet and I'm trying to find outlets for selling.
