About Me

My photo

I started this blog on November 23, 2009 just because I wanted to chronicle my artistic endeavors and see "in black and white" how many different directions my artistic brain would go.  I challenged myself to try different mediums and that this blog could be a platform to post my achievements and failures.  I cannot believe it's been six years now!  Over the past 6 years I've learned a few things from writing this blog:
1.  Art is in my blood, I will always be thinking or doing something artistic
2.  About 80% of my work turns out better than the original idea
3.  I am not a fast artist, I have to start on an idea and then let it sit for a while
4.  It's OK that my "artsy" brain sometimes goes in 1,000 different directions at once
With all of this said I now consider myself a mixed media artist because I a lot of my talents cross over into other projects I've already started; It's a great life and I wouldn't change anything about my crazy artistic brain!

Revisiting ANOTHER old friend - photoshop

I am really enjoying my new camera.  But along with taking pictures comes editing and then sometimes playing around with images.  I guess that's another part of my creativity, shoot then sometimes manipulate.  While revisiting my old photoshop program I stumbled upon another "filter" that I had not played around with before but love it.  My favorite flower is the Black-Eyed Susan so I found an old picture and manipulated it.
