Little Things

White Campanula in the early morning garden 
It's the little things declaring beauty that one must cling to in this tumultuous time,
to fight the despair that threatens to overwhelm.

In the morning... solitude


“In the morning, – solitude; … that nature may speak to the imagination, as she does never in company.”    Ralph Waldo Emerson

Studio Destash - Mixed Media Technique Books

I'm slowly cleaning out the studio and downsizing my stash of art technique magazines and books. While I've gifted some to friends, I have listed others in my Etsy shop.

Take a look at a few just listed:  
2006 Somerset Workshop - PLUS Workshop 2 
These were the very first Somerset Workshop magazines. I believe they discontinued the Workshop magazines in 2013.
Somerset Workshop - Summer and Autumn 2008


 Collage Discovery Workshop + Beyond the Unexpected 
Claudine Hellmuth is a favorite artist and I've referred to these books over and over these past few years... 

While it's difficult for me to let go of favorite references, there comes a time to release the inspiration to other artists. 

Happy Arting, Everyone!

16 Photos in 16 Minutes #365phew #80

A challenge on a day we were traveling home from my nephews wedding - take sixteen photos a minute apart.
We were driving through Washington wine country... and not all were in focus, but they give a feel of the road traveled. :)




This last photo was several miles up the road - a rest area at the top of the hills between Yakima and Ellensburg. Besides a view back the way we came, it had a cryptic sign that warns to "Watch for Rattlesnakes."

Imagine

Imagine a world where tolerance, acceptance, and kindness was lived daily. 

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace... 

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people sharing all the world...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Eyes Closed Photos

One of the daily prompts this past week (from the year long class with Carla Sonheim) was "Eyes Closed" photography. 
I did this during our walk yesterday at our favorite bird watching park - Scudder Pond in Whatcom Falls Park. The challenge was to take without looking, after scanning the area first. So, high and low and all around. To my delight, a couple of the high photos have hidden hearts. You may have to allow a bit of poetic license, however I see them.
