I love taking all kinds of pictures but I always come back to my flowers. Flowers are so beautiful and from different angles they take on different looks. God created this whole earth and I believe He gave us flowers to show his extreme love for us. I like getting as close as I can for a flower shot and it's a bonus for me if it has a bumble bee or a butterfly on it.
In my photo folders I used to have my flowers labeled according to location but, being the organized person I am, I decided to create folders of flowers according to their color which is working out a lot better for me. Here is just a small sampling of some of my flower pictures created in mosaic form:
- 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 artistic2. About 80% of my work turns out better than the original idea3. I am not a fast artist, I have to start on an idea and then let it sit for a while4. It's OK that my "artsy" brain sometimes goes in 1,000 different directions at onceWith 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!
