Watching the sunset as I peek through the trees.  This was taken at Alum Creek, Ohio.

First Snow

It has been so warm here and no snow in sight.  I actually like this warm weather!  But, this picture reminded me of how pretty the first snow can be.  This is a photograph I took last year in November.

Red Skies – Photograph of the Day

Red skies at night, sailor’s delight!  My husband and I went out on Thanksgiving evening to do some photography, and this shot of his is one of my favorites from that night.  The blended colors in the sky look like a painting to me.

Have we Taken Art for Granted?

I pondered that question as I prepared some art and photography prints for a Winter Art/Craft show.  The internet has made finding art easier than ever, but do we slow down to enjoy it?  Do we take in the artist’s message, experience the emotion, enjoy the beauty?  I have a feeling we far too often quickly look at a picture and then move on to the next forgetting the images as soon as we get our visual kick for the moment.

I unfortunately do this too often.  I am primarily a digital artist and photographer, so most of my work is done on a computer screen.  After matting about 50 artworks this past week, I was shocked to see how much I enjoyed being able to hold my art in my hand and view it for several minutes.  Of course I’m not saying there is anything wrong with viewing art online.  I just think we could all benefit from slowing down a bit and enjoying the art.  Take in the beauty, bookmark what you really like and go back to it at a later time, buy art that is special to you, talk to the artist, etc.

Anyway, as I said earlier, all this came about when I was matting prints for the show.  This will be my first time selling art at an art/craft show, and I’m really excited, but a little nervous too.  I’ll post more about that later.  For now here is a picture of some of the work I’ve prepared.

Green Sparkles – Photograph of the Day

This is one of those images that continues to grow on me.  I liked it from the beginning, but I recently printed it to take to a Holiday art/craft show this week, and after matting it, I realized I want it on my own wall!

I’ll post some of my work for the Holiday show, and I may make a video of our table. I’m excited.

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
