Hocking Hills Waterfall

This waterfall is called the Upper Falls and is located on the trail at Old Man’s Cave in Hocking Hills state park.  This was taken during the Fall season.  I was hoping to get a chance to go back this spring when the waterfalls were at their fullest, but I was sick for too long and missed the opportunity.  I guess that just means I get to look forward to it next year.  It really is a beautiful area and one of my favorite places in Ohio.  It is a bit too known and traveled, but if you go in the early morning, you can mostly have the trails to yourself.  At least that was my experience when I took this photograph.  There was only one other person there. My next trip there will hopefully be sometime in the winter when these falls will be ice.

Tiger Lily Petals

Here is another photograph in the floral abstract series of images I’ve recently taken.  I love the way the petals seem to have a flowing motion, like the dress of a dancer as she spins.

Standing on the Docks at Sunrise

Here’s another photograph from Deer Creek State Park.  It was a gorgeous sunrise at the lake, and we were the only people outside.  I guess everyone else stayed in bed.  My husband posed for me, helping me create a serene image of a man standing on the docks watching the morning sky.

Peach Flower Petals

A few weeks ago my husband bought me flowers for my birthday, and as always I had to photograph them.  They make perfect little models for my macro lens.  And, although I’ve taken so many flower photographs in the past, I’m always amazed to find something new and interesting.  This particular set of photographs are more like floral abstracts, and one thing I liked about them is how much the petals reminded me of flowing fabric.  Anyway, I’ll start the series by sharing this photograph, and I’ll gradually share over the coming weeks.

Deer Creek at Sunrise

We had the opportunity to visit Deer Creek State Park over the weekend, and it was lovely.  We unfortunately didn’t have a whole lot of time to explore the area, but we were able to get some decent sunrise images.  Waking up that early is the hard part and not something I enjoy, but once I’m out in nature watching the gorgeous view with my camera in hand, I completely forget how tired I am.

Red Rose

I never know what to buy my mother for mother’s day, so I bought her flowers.  They were beautiful, but not nearly as beautiful as she.  She told me, “Angie, you didn’t have to get me anything.”  I said, “Mom, you didn’t have to give birth to me.”  Ordinary gifts just can’t quite compare to the gift of life.

But the flowers were pretty!

Iris

My grandpa was a shy man.  Truth be told I had very few conversations with the man over the years.  Getting to know him wasn’t really possible by words alone, so one had to learn to appreciate the things he loved.  He was a gardener and was proud of his flowers, and sometimes even had us grand-kids help him plant.  He is gone now, but his flowers still bloom, and I like to take their pictures from time to time.

Lion Art

I have finished my recent artwork, Lion Art.  It is a digital painting in black and white, and another in my animal series.  I’m kind of liking black and white at the moment, so I have a feeling a few more artworks in this style will be coming soon.  That being said, I actually think I’ll be doing a few human portraits next, but I don’t know for sure.  I guess I’ll just have to wait and see what I’m in the mood for.  I do have several pictures planned.

I’m currently working on the video I made while working on this picture, and I’ll upload that as soon as it is finished.

For those interested I have prints of this art here.

Coloring Book Project

I thought I’d share some of my art. These are two commissioned pieces for the author, Rose Withering, and her coloring book project of Fantastic Tales of Fae. She has been using these as promotional pieces, and at a recent art fair/comic con had a coloring station set up at her table so that people could color the pages. I have to admit it is fun seeing people color my drawings.
