Photo to Art

Taking a photograph is just the beginning of my artistic process.  Today’s photo show how I create from the initial photograph to the finished product.   Enjoy

To art?  I am not sure I am done, but you get the picture.

Location: Madison Zoo

LIONS, TIGERS, & BEARS, oh my.  I have been so busy that I felt I had been neglecting my family.  We had not been spending much time together even though we live in the same house, so when the opportunity came up to spend a day at the zoo on Sunday ….


Your life really is in your hands

I get on a art theme and just go with it until it runs it’s course.  There was the south western, asian and african masks themes, just to name a few.  “Your life is in Your Hands” in many variations has been my theme for the last couple of years. …. and today’s photos continue that theme.  Enjoy

Music & Art

I have a lot of other projects going on so today’s post will be very short.  I have been feeling so loved recently and that translates into the music that I play when I am creating art and so on.  Most of my music is on my phone. You know the phone that often has it’s own mind so…

here are my top 5 songs.

  1. Ribbon in the Sky — Stevie Wonder
  2. Spend My Life With You — Eric Benet
  3. On the Ocean — K’Jon
  4. Quando Quando Quando — Michael Buble
  5. Where Would I Be — Kindred the Family Soul

and here are my smart ass phone’s top songs.

  2. Unpredictable — Jamie Foxx
  3. Do it Well  — Jennifer Lopez
  4. Why You Wanna — TI
  5. Time Will Reveal — De Barge




10 Things About Me OR the person behind Doon Art

As I mentioned in a recent post I very seldom share any private facts about me, although I say a lot.  My usual motto is only say about yourself what you wouldn’t mind being seen on the 6:00 news.  Recently my blog has been growing, I now have readers who are not just family and friends and to add some credibility to my ideas, thoughts and suggestions I thought it would be a good idea to share a few personal insights.


  1. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Master of Science in Education
  2. I have a tattoo and my only regret is that it is not larger
  3. I have studied different aspects of spirituality since I was a least 12 and it does not conflict with my religious beliefs.
  4. I am a recent widow
  5. My sister is my best friend
  6. I do not eat meat everyday, but I am not a vegetarian
  7. I think water is a miracle drug.  (Oh yeah this will be a post)
  8. I cry about many things, good and bad experiences, but do not confuse my tears for weakness.  I am fierce.
  9. I love to exercise. I hate to go more than 2 days with out working out.
  10. I have recently learned how to manifest perfect situations into my life quicker. (Another Friday post)
