Fall flower photos from a couple of weeks ago. Thank you to my neighbors across the street. I have not highlighted a color in a long time, so today I am highlighting two, orange and pink.
I have been turning some of my color photos into sepia toned photos. Since I am a self-taught artist & photographer I enjoy experimenting. What I have learned so far is to use photos with high contrast. I also tried to edit the photos different than I ordinarily would. What do you think?
First, let me start with I am not working on any outside projects so far this week (a good & bad thing) so I have time to work different aspects of my business that I have been wanting to try. (Ok I also have time to catch up on my admin tasks, also.)
I taking advantage of this opportunity (meaning time & money) to create a couple of calendar styles for 2012. I have enjoyed my first time designing & developing in this venue. I plan to market them online (as soon as I clean up my Etsy shop) and a the couple of art fairs I plan to be in between now and the holidays. Enjoy
The following 8″ X 10.5″ calendars are two of my three styles(the other style will have individual months). What do you think? Do you have a fav?
The following art works would have been part of my much anticipated “Let There be Lights” art show.
I have had a couple of requests for a “random act of kindness” I think I will have to make something happen this weekend.
